View Full Version : April Rising Sun Meeting - Recovery Night!!!

03-28-2013, 05:08 PM
Come join us at Jeffco Fairgrounds on Wednesday, beginning at 7:00pm (meeting starts at 7:30). We will quickly run through our introductions & club business, then devote the rest of the evening to our featured topic: recovery equipment & techniques.

Bring out your straps, gloves, shackles, snatch blocks, and anything else that's recovery-related that you want to either show off or ask questions about. Yes be sure to bring your questions, as club experts will be on hand to demonstrate best practices in spotting, hooking to vehicles, winching, equipment, including a live winching demonstration.

This is another great opportunity to reinforce what you already know, and help others in the club gain the confidence & know-how they need to head out to the trails, and return safely.

Like last month wear warm clothes: Jackets, hats & gloves- yes it could be chilly out. Yes, we do have a contingency for moving indoors if the weather is really poor, but our plan is to do this outside.

Heaters: safe propane heaters were great last time, depending on the forecast if you have one and want to bring it, by all means!

See the image below, the area is just on the other side of 6th Avenue from Stevenson West, not even a mile away. Please post up any additional questions, and we’ll see you on the 3rd for the first ever Rising Sun Recovery night! :thumb:

Will this be instead of the monthly meeting at Stevinson? I'm new here and want to join RS.

Yes, no meeting at Stevinson. We can vote you in at the fairgrounds if you are ready to join. :)

Was gonna bring the 40 tonight but the weather is turning for the worse, is this a go even if we get a little wet? I'm hoping so and dusting off my Gore-Tex. Is there a plan "B" if it gets ugly?
