2017-03-11 Wilderness Exercise
Include or link to the announcement for this event.
On Saturday March 11, we have a beginner snowshoe trip. Depending on weather and permissions, our updated destination is the West Castle valley beyond the ski hill. Snowshoeing is easy to learn and we'll have extra snowshoes if you don't have any. While we're out, we'll review firestarting skills. Friends, family, and members of other SAR Groups welcome. Meet us at 08:30 at Pincher Creek Fire Hall. Expect to be back in town late afternoon.

Purpose of the event or detailed agenda/schedule.
But I like your idea of the West Castle valley south of the bridge and east of the river. We'll plan to head through the trees between the road and the river as far south as Spruce Mills and do our fire starting exercise in there.
We hope to stop and practice small fire starting. The intent is to practice safe basic skills, starting a fire in a winter wilderness setting. No large fire or bonfire would be created. All fires would be safely extinguished.
