[SASAG] SANS instructors / Pacific Northwest

Hi folks,

Do any of the SANS instructors (http://www.sans.org/ns2009/faculty.php) live in 
the Pacific Northwest?

Sending people to SANS itself is fabulously expensive ... so I'm hoping that I 
can reduce costs (and expose more staff) by hosting an in-house / customized 
version.  I've googled through the current faculty list, and I'm fairly sure 
that none of them live in these parts, but I'm hoping to be mistaken.

Failing that, does anyone know of someone 'local' who plays in the space?  I'm 
looking mostly for skill at teaching, along with an understanding that real life 
is risky, horror stories are fun but not productive, and breadth:  technical 
skills along with an understanding of the current legal climate.  The audience 
would be sys admins of various flavors, all of whom manage systems exposed to 
the Internet.

[If you have money and are interested in pooling resources to bring a SANS 
faculty member to town, drop me a note.]
