It’s really hard to think about riding when it’s so darn
cold out! I swear it seems to get colder
the older I get. And to think it’s now
the start of March!! That does mean
Spring’s right around the corner, right??
I’m working on setting up more Medic First Aid courses
since the grace period for Levels ends June 30th. The goal is to get as many caught up as we
can. Our last course was well attended
with 11 members joining us at Dehn’s Country Manor. A quick shout out to Mike Dehn for all his
help with our District needs. He’s been
really supportive, and I truly appreciate him.
I’m also looking for a facility in the South Metro so if
anyone has an idea, let me know. I’m going to try contacting the American
Legion in Apple Valley again. That was
always a good venue in the past with plenty of room for training. Our motto: Have mannequins, can travel.
As I noted in my last article, it’s also time for Rider
Courses……..earlier in the season this year if at all possible, but I’m always
willing to see what I can schedule. I
also found out that the three Ride Course Instructors (Bob, Scott and me) are
also able to do an Add-on Rider Course so if you happen to know someone with an
add-on kit, let them know. I do know
there is at least one Member looking to take a course. If we can get a couple additional, we can do it!
There you have it. My schedule is getting busy trying to schedule classes. By the way, if anyone reading this article is
interested in becoming a Medic First Aid Instructor, please let me know. It never hurts to have a larger group of
warm and stay safe. See you all soon!
