Bike Patrol Class
« on: May 07, 2008, 08:35:03 AM »
Does anyone else here want to take the Mountain Bike Patrol Class? Lou doesn't have enough people to make up a class yet. I'd like to take it but we need more people. Let me know.

The class is scheduled for May 24th so get those RSVP's to Lou soon so she can plan for it.  A lot of behind the scenes stuff goes into planning for everything we do, so help out by letting her know early.

Garry, Lou told me that the 24th class is just a cpr class not a patrol class. That's why I was trying to find people to participate so we could organize a class. She's getting me the particulars on day and length.

Woops, my mistake.  But to be National Mountain Bike Patrol one needs the First Aid/CPR and the Patrol class.  I think Julianne does the patrol class.

That was my understanding also. If there was a patrol class i beleive they hold aCPR class on the same day and i'd wait to take the CPR class then as opposed to taking it on the 24th which is mothers day. I need to update my card anyway as I like to keep it current for my captains license although it's not required to keep current I like to anyway.

This is what was done last year. Karl Smart did the portion that you need to get certified by IMBA. You do not need to be certified by IMBA to be a Swamp guide, but you do need the CPR and first aid class.

Ken, The 24th is memorial day weekend (i think).  Mother's day is this weekend.  Wouldn't want you to miss Mother's day as you wife may not be very happy about it. 

BTW, I am in the CPR class.  Last year we started a great tradition with the Flying Monkey Brothers.  (Bob and Matt).  Bring your road ride for a before class and a after class roadie lay the hammer down day!  Nothing better then seating in 2-3 hrs class all smelly...   We meet at 7am for the morning session and after class is part 2.  ;D

I beleive you have to buy it. If you check out the IMBA website>bike patrol they have alot of cool merch there. Jason said he wanted to take and I beleive you did too, right Factor?

Cool Jonathon, I've gotten some more requests as well so we may have enough to make a class. I'll let you know more as I find out.
