Default sausage making class...should I?

Can any brethren offer any insight on sausage making classes? I'm considering taking a class offered near me. It's a butcher shop i get meat from sometimes. It's a class offered by Olde Towne Butcher in Fredericksburg, VA. It' only $40 so I would think it's a really short class. I'm wondering if it's even worth it with all the info i have access too here. i'm completely new to sausage making and dont even have the gear to do it yet. Here is the link to the class i'm considering:

http://oldetownebutcher.com/services.html

If nothing else, i'd get some sausage out of the deal

Although the information highway flows abundantly here, hands on is pretty cool. Forty bucks, I say do it.

For $40, I say do it, especially since you get 5lbs of sausage too. Just getting to do some stuffing practice is good. For me, that is the hardest part. Especially since I do it by myself.

I'm sure you will get more than the $40 worth of info, tips, and as you said, at least get to know the butcher a lot better. I'd pay $40 bucks just to get to know the butcher a bit better.
Do it! I'd be all over that!
