Main class is on Saturday but those part of the class we'll have a ride for the weekend with camping and cabins (no dorm, scouts have it that weekend).

 

The morning class will start at 9am sharp for the Trail Ambassador training hosted by Adam & Randy Harden

Then we break for lunch on site

After lunch, we'll begin our Trail Guide training class which goes through everything from lines and recovery to how to submit your own events and make your own trail guide page on rl4wd.com. 

Cost will be ~$40 for the class and background check. We'll also have vests and such you can buy as part of pre-reg if we have enough people RSVP. 

After the classes, we'll take our new knowledge and roleplay out on the trail with what we've learned. 

The course will include a SOG (Standard Operating Guideline) book and review material. 

We are the first Wisconsin Division 2 (RL4WD) class! 

If you are a current firefighter, military, or law enforcement, you will likely qualify for Division 2 Responder status as our Trail Ambassador program is (Adam fill in the stuff here)

We are not charging an event fee for this training session. 

I'll have the lodging pre-reg up after the Jan event.

    So far 12 people have paid the $40 and Matt is bringing his to the event. We have to print some additional binders you all will be getting with your vests and such so whatever the count is by noon today, will be what's printed. I'll also be setting up each binder with additional event and vehicle check-in sheets so this binder should be all you ever need as far as paperwork goes. Please still bring something to write with as you may want to take notes.

    We'll be limiting the outside exposure however possible for this class so be sure you have a CB. We still have to demonstrate proficiency of skills learned in the afternoon, but this doesn't mean you have to be an expert! As long as your willing to learn, that's the main point. Some of you have demonstrated your skills over the last 2 years, we'll use that to speed up some of the exercises.

    Taking this class is the first step, not the final step to trail guiding and patrolling. Nothing will replace experience which is why this thing is based on what you do over what you know on paper.

    **Just because you take this training, it doesn't mean you're being forced to host rides or events. Some Trail Guide Ambassadors will only patrol trails, some will host rides, some will do both... it's up to you on what you want to do and how often you want to do it. I thank you all for taking this first step in using the tools we're providing to help grow our trail and club networks. You all are the reason this thing works, again thank you all so much for your dedication to making this happen, words just aren't enough!!!

    Our trail class weekend is coming up next week! So far we have six paid entries. We're covering the cost of the lodge and cabins for Trail Guides; the $40 is for the Trail Ambassador background checks and Trail Guide materials, a card you'll get after completion of the course. I'm making Trail Guide stickers for your rig, and you'll get a booklet and course materials, logins, a patch for your vest, etc.

    I'll be on site Friday night at about 6 pm if you want to check in. The scouts are using the dorm, but we'll heat the cabins if you request one below (ticketing program is still being updated to work with the new site updates).

    Saturday morning we'll start with the Trail Ambassador classes in the lodge. Then, we'll do lunch on site. I'll bring some stuff to make sandwiches, but you're free to bring your own food, drinks, and snacks.

    During lunch, we'll jam into the Trail Guide program. I'll have course materials to take with you, but please bring pens and paper.

    Being we have a wide variety of tech abilities here, our system allows Trail Guide Ambassadors to call in rides, submit stuff by paper, mail, email, website, or text. The point is, we're going to make it as easy as we can to set things up, report items, and have folks ready to help you.

    Saturday afternoon, we'll be taking our skills and roleplaying them out on the trail. Please bring warm gear and your CB, and we'll do our best to keep people inside. While recovery is covered in this class, it's not the only focus.

    If you all want to practice more on Sunday, we'll do more riding and practice Sunday as well. If nobody wants to stay on Saturday night, we'll end the session on Saturday.

    • Yes, bring bags and extra clothing, boots, winter stuff like long undies and snow pants. We'll be doing some outside demos and such. I have Jon warminYes, bring bags and extra clothing, boots, winter stuff like long undies and snow pants. We'll be doing some outside demos and such. I have Jon warming up all the lower cabins so the 4 plex rooster, chick and nuthatch. You can see those cabin pics on campsinawa.com if we need more cabins heated, let me know. He starts warming them up tomorrow morning.

      I'm going to bring some pizzas for lunch on Saturday along with some snacks, soda, coffee etc. I'll have the vests and we'll have forms and gear and all that stuff on site for everyone.

      In the big grass campsite by the white shack, we'll likely have a fire roaring during Saturday afternoon so if we do have to stand outside, we'll have a fire to stand by. Jon unloaded a bucket of wood back there for us.
