Invitation to Upcoming Northern Tasmania Cave Rescue Exercise Autumn 2016

Any interested VSA members are invited to the upcoming Northern Tasmania Cave Rescue Training weekend in Mole Creek, Tasmania. The weekend will be held on the 9-10th April, 2016

It would be most beneficial for those with SRT equipment and training, although others may find it interesting.
It is a great opportunity to learn and practice new techniques and skills.

Al Warild and other interstate cavers will be attending the weekend, so it is also a great opportunity to learn from their experience.

Saturday 9th April: 8.30 am Hillwood
Vertical rescue practice and Michie comms workshop. Protocols, practicalities, efficiency and priorities.
Subject to venue change to Honeycomb Cave if severe weather.

Sunday 10th April: 8.30 am Honeycomb
Cave natural anchors stretcher rescue simulation.

Trips are possible either side of the weekend while Al Warild and other interstate people are here. Deb and Janice suggested Devil’s Pot as an interclub vertical exchange trip.

Kubla Khan rescue planning discussion session TBA (RSVPs pending).

RSVP to Deb (co-ordinator) debhunter8@bigpond.com
