Upcoming Training Events

  • November 23, 2019 – 09:00 to 14:00 – High Angle Training – Holt’s Ledge – CANCELED
    Although we can’t plan on weather for searches to be ideal, we sure can when it comes to training. We have decided to postpone our planned training on Holts Ledge until spring. The top of the mountain conditions, staging/transportation considerations, along with this week’s weather, will make the planned training exercise unsafe.
