The Volunteer Ski Patrol's annual fundraiser, the Defiance Challenge, is occurring the day before National Day, on Friday, March 3. Each year proceeds from this event go to Sunlight's Volunteer Ski Patrol and a patroller in need. This year we will donate proceeds to Dave Repsher, a Flight for Life nurse and former patroller at Copper Mountain that suffered extensive injuries in a helicopter crash in 2015. We welcome visiting patrollers to take full advantage of the great lodging deals at the resort and plan to arrive early to spectate or participate in our fundraiser and/or join in the festivities on Friday night. ...

MVCC is just a few minutes north of the Genesee Exit 254 on I-70. The physical address is: 24933 Clubhouse Circle, Golden, CO 80401

This meeting is held to review nominations for national level awards in order that they might sail cleanly through the rest of the process at the National level. We will also reviewed Merit Star awards, above the Yellow Merit Star level, to be sure that all the right supporting information is present and that the nominated star types are the correct ones for the reasons cited.

If you have nominations that you would like reviewed at this meeting, but will be unable to send a representative, please get the completed nominations to me or Barbara Florey in advance of the meeting and we will get them reviewed by those in attendance and then right back to you with comments or directly moved on in the process, depending what's appropriate.

Please pass this note on to those within your patrols who handle awards nominations if you are not the one.

Planning to attend or not, please at confirm that you got this note. I need to provide a head count to MVCC.
