Regular meetings for CATSAR members are held the first Wednesday of each month March through November from 5:00 PM to 6:30 PM. Meeting location is the Pie Town Community Center. In some months we may substitute a field training event at a different location on another day for that month’s regular meeting. In January 2016 and 2017 CATSAR added a new event to the team schedule. The CATSAR team, along with members of the Soccoro SAR team, held ‘winter games’ just south of Quemado Lake. The CATSAR President and Training Officer coordinated fun and innovative games aimed at keeping members’ search skills fresh, as well as practical practice using GPS units and VHS radios. The ‘games’ were followed by a pot luck luncheon. We expect this will be an ongoing annual tradition.
Election of Officers takes place at the April meeting every other year. A notice of the next scheduled meeting is sent by email to the membership in the monthly newsletter.
