The training for July will be SAR Fundamentals, where we will go over the field components of search techniques, litter hauling, and land navigation for members who wish to brush up on these skills. The training will begin at 9:00 AM on July 16 at Three-Gun Springs trailhead.
Next month, Cy Stockhoff has agreed to give us a one-day Wilderness First Aid (WFA) course. He has condensed a Wilderness Medical Associates two-day WFA course into one day, with a focus on the injuries we are likely to run into and the skills we will need to take care of ourselves and one another. This training is not intended to provide the skills necessary to treat a subject on a mission, but rather skills we need to take care of ourselves on a mission. This will be a full day training on August 13, so please reserve this day on your calendars.

The meeting started at 19:26 p.m. Treasurer Mark Espelien presided. Mark commended the work that Steve Buckley and Tom Russo did in representing the team at David Dixon's funeral. He also thanked all the members who showed up in their orange shirts at David's memorial service and funeral.
Escape: Bob reported that it was the best ESCAPE that he had been to. The turn out was very high, as was the quality of the classes.
High angle training: 2 members from AMRC did a Z-drag, hauling a litter up a 30 degree slope. Very interesting.
June 12: Chris Murray will give a man-tracking class at Tijeras USFS ranger station, 9 a.m.
The meeting ended at 20:31.
