CONGRATULATIONS to our Patrol’s newest Alpine Patrollers: John Musto, Bernard Friedman and Kelley Clem. They have worked hard and despite this difficult season obtained the necessary skills and showed that they can assist in transporting patients via rescue toboggan.

CONGRATULATIONS to Wally Taylor, Justin Tugaoen and Jonah Tugaoen in passing the Senior Ski (Wally) and Senior Snowboard (Justin and Jonah) portions of their Senior Alpine Patroller journey.  Also, congrats to Jonah Tugaoen for attaining the rating of Senior Patroller. This is quite a feat for such a young man and he is an example to all of us.   Super job by all three, they represented MRM patrol well!!

Note: The latest Financial report is posted for patrol members.  See Financials under the Members Area.

CONGRATULATIONS! We had two successful candidates for the OEC Module of the Senior Program,  Stuart Kanchuger and Jonah Tugaoen  Be sure to congratulate them!  Congrats also to Aid Room Module successes from Kristen McKenna and Michael Ruckdaschel. Many thanks to all participants, evaluators, station support and other help to enable MRM to host the region event and show off our new facility.

Reminder: Please make sure to not only lock the door to hallway at night, but also the door to the ski locker.  If you have a time that no one will be in the aid room – lock the ski locker room before leaving.  This will reduce the risk of valuable equipment showing up missing.  Thanks for looking out for your fellow patroller!
