October 5th Patrol Meeting Re-Cap:
Thank you to everyone who came out to the patrol meeting at the Church last night to hear updates about SKI PATROL this season. Here is the 1 minute recap:
Bridget will be locking down the Patrol Roster next week with the help of Lin (making sure people who want to patrol with us are on our roster, people who have moved away or who want to be categorized other than ‘active’ list correctly) – when that happens an email will go out that you may all pay dues.
We had the best OEC refresher in history according to over 10 patrollers this year on the 30th of September – Special thank you to all the instructors and Sue S. for making this happen! IF you couldn’t be at this amazing Cycle A refresher this year with BMNSP we have you covered; here are 2 other options:
1. October 28th : Ski Cooper
2. October 29th : Diamond Peaks (email Bridget if you need help getting to one of these events)
