It’s Sunday evening and I have just returned from the 2014/2015 Young Adult Patroller Seminar held at Jiminy Peak Resort in Hancock, Massachusetts. This year, despite the fact that SATs were being held for college bound students, more than 50 Young Adult Patrollers from across the Eastern Division attended, participated and competed in this annual event. In addition to training and competition, the event provides the student patrollers with the opportunity to network with their peers from across the Division, from Maine all the way to North Carolina. A contingent from the New Hampshire Region attended the seminar and, while not a large group, they certainly represented the Region very well. It is also important to note that several of our adult patrollers attended as chaperones, and we thank them for their commitment and dedication to this very important segment of our population.

Black Mtn, Toboggan Enhancement 2015

A good warm up run top to bottom with each participants demonstrating a little bit of all short, medium and long radius turns was helpful in determining the selection of our groups.
