Young Adult Patroller’s take on Bolton Valley in Vermont

Prepared for anything, NH Region Young Adult Patroller’s (YAP) eagerly arrived at Bolton Valley in Richmond, Vermont for the Eastern Division Young Adult Patroller’s Seminar on Friday, March 17. With recent storms providing over 20 inches of new snow, the group spent most of the morning and afternoon on the slopes, running the bull wheels ragged. Dinner in the Athletic Center came after check-in, and the YAP’s made their way to their first meeting focusing on Outdoor Emergency Care (OEC) equipment required for all events, throughout the weekend. Their packed schedule included training, preparations, skill tests, games, and a bit of friendly social gathering with breakfast, lunch, and dinner, woven into the mix.

NH Region Patrollers Banquet ending the 2017 season

I’d like to take just a little time for a wrap up on our 2017 NH Region Patrollers Banquet held at Ragged Mountain Resort on April, 22, 2017. What a great way to celebrate our organization and the NH patrol members who give of themselves to so many.

We had a good attendance with lots of patrollers and their spouses from many patrols throughout the Region. There was plenty of time to visit and connect with individuals which some of us may have worked with during the season either through Toboggan clinics or training with OEC or just plain daily patrolling. Great food was served for our dinner and desert was plentiful and sweet. Our dinner table centerpieces were lovely donated potted flowers from Pleasant View Gardens.

After I presented my opening remarks and thanked the many individuals who helped make the event another success
