Our 2010-clinic schedule is beginning to come together.  We received a challenge from our membership on the east coast to provide the same quality of classes and certification as is currently available in the west.  We need your help to meet this challenge.  We need those individuals in the eastern region with the most experience to join and form the foundation of SARDUS-east.  We also are looking for groups that would be interested in assisting with hosting clinics.  SARDUS will be having a clinic in Montana this July, which would be a good opportunity to train a small group from the east coast.  SARDUS will also be hosting smaller clinics throughout 2010 that will focus on avalanche, trailing, HRD, airscent and we hope HRD disaster.  In 1992 SARDUS hosted an International Search and Rescue Symposium and we hope to be able to do the same in 2011, well we can dream at least.  We start the year and invite those canine avalanche teams to create your version of the SARDUS Avalanche standard.  This will be held March 18-20 in Summit County Colorado.  The following is a tentative training schedule, announcements will be made when dates are firmed up.
