Most classes do require a certain minimum load out.
Most ranges that GFT use are remote so pack some goodies. Bring plenty of water and food as there are no locations that are close. The ranges usually don't have extra shade, chairs or tables. That said, we usually have room so bring your own chair and table and maybe a shade pop-up. Set up a good space to work out of for the day. If you are taking a night class, bring some auxiliary lighting such as a small lantern or headlamp so you can see in your area.
Please reach out to the GFT staff and can answer anything you want know and we can fill you in or work something out.
