As usual I would like to see everyone keep up the good work and to continue their training. On April 29, 11 teammates hiked up to TWA canyon. The interesting thing about this was that we brought along 11 other people. We started out at about 9:15 and made the hike in about 3 hours and looked around for about 30 minutes and then were back at our cars by 2:30 or so. I think everyone had a good time and the only casualty was one blister on the way up, one on the way down and cramping calves on one of the young boys that went with us. We will look at doing another similar hike in the future. Any suggestions will be welcomed, please email me or pull me aside.
With summer almost here I would bet that we will see more missions. With that said we are trying to get every team member to sign up for ONE month of pager duty. We have plenty of members, so put your name on the list. The earlier you pick, the better your choices. If you have any questions about running the pager system see me. If I can do it, just about anyone can.
Evaluations are going well. We had 9 people sign up and call in, for last months Search Techniques Evaluation. So, please call the hot line by the Wednesday before the eval and leave a message that you are attending. This month is Navigation.
See you on the trail. Adam

It is getting to be that time of year when we need to make sure we have kept up with training. As of the first of July, those of you who have not taken two team trainings in the first six months of the year will be ineligible for missions until you do. Look for the little "w" next to your name. If you see one, check your training status on the web, and make sure to attend the June training. If you need more than one, talk to our Training Officer about the possibility of organizing a special session so that you can get your two required training events for this period.
