To be truly dangerous to your enemies, train at MVT.

We are currently building a  Team Cabin at the Velocity Training Center (VTC) in Romney. It is located at the campsite. If you are not on the MVT Forum, you will be missing out on the discussions and update on this. I just got back from a volunteer work weekend where we installed the flooring onto the frame. Mike (project manager) is doing another work weekend on the 29/30 July to install the walls, and then we will plan another one in August for the roof. We plan to get the basics of the wall and roof installed before September. After that, we will continue to work and improve going into next year, with an intent to insulate, install a wood burner, electric, air conditioning and keep improving.

This Team Cabin is for the use of MVT Students. You will be able to save on staying in local Motels such as the Koolwink, and it is a step up from camping. It can also be used as a wet weather classroom and will increase our instructional capability once the electric is installed.

Robert from JRH Enterprises has kindly donated a Steiner DBAL-I2 IR Laser with IR ILLUMINATOR for a raffle to raise money to get this team cabin built. This is an $850 value.

The raffle will be $50 per ticket. To participate, use THIS LINK  to the MVT Online Payment Form. Enter # (multiples of $50) of raffle tickets and ‘DBAL Raffle’ in the description box. Enter the amount (multiples of $50) in the price box. Then hit continue to pay. Example:

Description box : 2 x DBAL Raffle. Price Box: $100

Once built, there will be a $20 per night maintenance charge for anyone using the Team Cabin, and a $10 per night maintenance charge for camping. This is obviously a significant saving on staying in a hotel / motel. However, if you help build it as a volunteer, or if you enter minimum 2 x raffle tickets ($100) in the raffle, you will never pay the maintenance charge and can stay for free. If you are a returning alumni or you intend to train at MVT in the future, this is a significant saving on accommodation costs.

The more that is donated in the raffle the quicker we can invest, build and improve the interior of this cabin.

The draw will happen at the CQBC weekend August 18-20.

The Cabin is 16′ x 39′ and will have a 16′ x 32′ interior space with a porch on one end (far end in the photo below).

    DBAL-I2 does not have an Illuminator or light, only Visible and IR lasers. You may wish to correct your description of the DBAL -I2.

        In from Robert:

        This is the Steiner part number 9007 DBAL-I2/ PEQ-2 with IR laser and IR illuminator. NO VISIBLE LASER in this model.

        There are two other DBAL variants that have visible laser components, this is NOT either of those.

  2. Robert/JRH says:

    This is the 9007 Steiner part number DBAL-I2/PEQ2 that has the IR laser and the IR illuminator, NO VISIBLE LASER on this model.

    Steiner put these out about 2 years ago. The full item description is here-
