- Calling all patrollers - Need volunteers for Sea Otter Classic Bike Race at Laguna Seca, April 10-13
PDF Flyer
We are seeking NSP volunteers for back-country first-aid service and course marshaling - this means patroller’s family and friends can volunteer.
A few highlights:
  • Free camping (trailer, fifth-wheel, tents; right in the heart of the event)
  • Big NSP barbecues both Friday and Saturday night
  • Fun and scenic service in the old Ft. Ord backcountry, with fellow patrollers from a number of FWD patrols
  • Plenty of time to bicycle or tour the US's largest cycling event, with trade show with 300+ vendors
  • NSP members/family service helped earn about $4,500 for six FWD ski patrols last year (each volunteer earns $30 per volunteer shift, for their designated patrol).

- The Instructor Continuing Education Clinic
(required attendance once every 3 years for instructors in all disciplines)
will be Saturday, September 13, 2014 in Davis.
