There are no prerequisites for this training event.

This is going to be a fun training weekend where our members will be exposed to rope systems, scenario based training, and also have the opportunity to Repel from our 65Ft Rope tower. Students will be taught how to tie essential knots, anchors and be exposed to the fun and challenging problem solving of rescue scenarios requiring rope systems. This is a great team building weekend that will challenge the participants to problem solve effectively. This will be a great experience. GTM testing and Ranger Testing will also be readily available for this weekend as well so take advantage of that!!

At this time two vans are allocated to make this an accessible event for anyone interested. The Meeting point is listed above. Any members wishing to attend the event will just have to get to Ford City and the ride will be provided from there. Vans will leave promptly at 1900. If more are needed based on registration more will be added to the convoy.
