I saw this on TGR today. Surprised that killz didn't mention this. In either case looks like a good time. I'm pretty sure the girlfriend and I are going to go to this.
Snow's falling on the higher peaks and it's that time of year to slap some new batteries in the beacons and practice your locating skills! We will be setting up a beacon practice course in Commons Park next Friday evening. The evening will include a quick refresher lecture on locating procedures and then practice sessions on both single burial and multiple burial courses.
Meet at the pedestrian bridge in Commons Park at 5:30 PM. Bring your own avalanche beacon and maybe some beer if your so inclined. If your running late, we'll hopefully be in the large grassy area just south of the pedestrian bridge, so we'll be easy to find. We'll be working on our skills until dark. This event is free. Hopefully, this will becomes a bi-monthly event or monthly event until the snow flies!
We will also be raffling off a door prize to one lucky beacon searcher
There is also a Facebook page for the event: https://www.facebook.com/events/577459702321662
I didn't see this posted on berthoudpass.org, just TGR and Facebook. Look's like it's free but I'm not sure if you need to be a FOBP member to attend.
Anyone else plan on going?
