The Young Adult Patroller (YAP) Program is an innovative and fun-filled program for men and women ages 15-18 who are still in high school. The purpose of this program is to educate and develop those young adults with an interest in the ski industry and ski patrolling by providing an atmosphere that encourages fun, physical fitness, leadership, injury prevention, health and safety education, and personal growth.
It is that time of year to dust off your OEC books and first-aid packs. This year I am taking on the roll of Instructor of Record for the Northern Catskills Belleayre OEC refresher. I want to welcome all to the 2015/2016 season as instructors have already started in August prepping for our continuing education. I am sure there will be a few bumps in the road along the way being my first year in this roll but we have a great group backing me and helping me. Below is information you will need for this year’s refresher.
A few important points:
· Location is again at the Lakeview House in Newburgh
· 6:00pm – Refreshments (cash bar)
· 7:00pm – Meeting start
· If we end up with 35 or more people, they’ll place us in the large more private room in the back we’ve had in the past with lake views.
· Dinner is from a pre-selected menu of 5 entrees (tbd)
