Dude On Rock...

Let me catch you up to speed! 

This month we successfully graduated 5 Level 2 Natural Rock Staff (that is equivalent to a Director for Natural Rock). Congratulations to Rick Hall, Steve Molnar, Josh Souter, Jeff Morris and Josh Danford!  You certification is for 3 years. Thanks for coming to train. Thanks to Tony Cowan our Program Manager and Bill Spence our Training Program Evaluator and staff Terry Mohn, Charlie Brown, and great to see James and Nora Olsen.

We once again passed ACCT inspections and had no major critical issues. We have a hand full of small tasks to finish but all in all we looked good.

We are currently preparing to almost double the zip line in length to accommodate a "walk off" rig. All Staff are encouraged to familiarize yourself with the new zip. It will feel like a canopy tour as we enter the tree line.
We will created all new protocol and have this in place before next training in October. We hope to be up and running before the end of the month.

Summer camp is around the corner and we welcome any staff that wants to come down to assist in running the zip for the summer. Come early and eat lunch or have dinner with the camp staff after. We work all Fridays at about 2-5:30 as weather permits.

Come on out and Play!
