    Default Explorer Competitions This Summer

    I am searching for any Explorer Competitions this summer. We were fund raising for Nationals at Texas A&M but decided to start off a little bit closer to home since we have a lot of new guys in our group.


    Thank You



    Feel free to drop me a line.

    Your in luck. There are several in the area. Were you at the winter event? We discussed several upcomming events. If you need more info, I'm sure Moose can help you out better than I can.

    How far of a trip is it from Laurelville to Toledo. As RFRD stated previously (a few years aog now), our Post has a muster the 3rd weekend in July. Between RFRD and I, we can get you all info you need. Rossford is on the south side of Toledo just across the river.
    Also the Mock Disaster he talked about before is the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend. That is in Monroe County, Michigan (1/2 hour-45 minutes north of the Ohio-Michigan border/Toledo)

    We'll be happy to help you out... It would be great to get another department at Mock Disaster as well as at the Muster.

    As stated above, my post, well I run the event, puts on a Mock Disaster event every May (the 24th for 2008). It's a pretty cool day. We setup and run a bunch of 'mock' scenarios ranging from MVA's, to live fires (usually cars), and a wide variety of medical situations. We also try to bring in a demonstration from an outside agency (new equipment and stuff like that to the field) and bring in a local EMS agency with a rig and bird. I can't say what 2008 will be, but we are going to start working on some cool stuff in January to try and pull it off.

    If you, or ANYONE here is interested, shoot me an email (KTorak@gmail.com) and i'll place you on my contact list for the event and let you know when the planning meetings are in the spring and more information about the event. Registration was $15 [per person] last year, and should remain that for the next year.
