Saturday, Feb 4th was a gorgeous day for our Candidate Test and the DelForte Park Jam.  Our crews were very busy all day and night.  

Congrats go to our new S&T qualified folks:

Torin Welch
Holly Drawe
Ali Smith
Matt Koelsch
Natalie Wall

 And congrats to Eric Edelstein who passed morning skills and will test sleds when he grows a bit.

The others that tested also showed great improvements this season and we look forward to their continued growth and future success. 

 We will celebrate all of these successes next weekend.. February 11 at Shappee's. I hope you will join us!  The Guinness always flows at Dan's and it tastes best in glass. You may want to bring one to the party. 

Also on Saturday, we hosted an enhancement seminar.  It was a great day and everyone bumped it up a notch! Thanks to everyone who participated and to our region TE staff for great instruction.  Congrats to Fred Shelly and Kristen Patterson for completing their Alpine Senior with this final elective.  

Our S&T staff has worked really hard this season... Thanks guys! Your time and energy are appreciated.  

Congratulations to NEW Senior Patrollers!
