    Free, but just bear in mind that they are hosted there with a gear-centric perspective. They host the free informational and educational events there, with the hope that it'll encourage people to buy the new gear they "need" for said activity there. Not saying that's positive or negative, just a perspective to keep in mind that it is part business for them and some of the information they present is skewed in a sales mindset.

    I worked at a Cabela's briefly and they did the exact same thing. Again, there is value to the service of hosting these free public events, and some good info is passed along as well. Just don't forget the business/sales background present in the equation when they are talking.
