Question Drifting Schools in NorCal ?

Does anybody know of a decent drifting school in NorCal ? I found this website Drift101, but not sure where they have their classes ... so, post it here if you know any good and not super expensive school ...

I'm looking into putting on a drift school in Nor Cal. I've been an instructor at the Jim Russell school for 12 years and I'm a pro drifter. Many people have been asking so I think the demand is there. I'll post any developments. www.tylermcquarrie.com

I'm down...if I can get a ride in the Hankook 993

Seriously, I'm game for this. I'll keep an eye on the site. Great to have you on the forum.
