From Rick Lund, the new owner of the Homestead Training Center:

One of the first things we have ready for 2016 is to have the Classifier available to our South Florida shooters 7 days a week. The only thing needed is to have a certified SO to run you. Our State Match director, Brian Chesloff, is now employed at our facility as one of our Range Masters, so you have easy access to finding someone to run you.
