November Ski Patrol Updates (no meeting this month):

Leadership decided due to the extra strain of the OEC class weekly on instructors and the fact we don’t have too much to share this month, we would send out a November Patrol Announcement to keep everyone in the loop about what is going on with BMNSP.

OEC Update: In from Lin (Patrol Mom and OEC Captain of the Guard this year) ~ We are in the final stretches with our amazing OEC class and students.
