Last night club members were treated to an intimate discussion with an overview of our local life saving group of volunteers saving lives in our mountain environment.  Stephanie Thomas is the executive director of the Foundation and is proud of the fact that 40 volunteers, trained in all aspects of search and rescue, are on call to help. There is a waiting list of usually 80-100 wanting to join!  Nicole Ludwig described her skills as the helicopter pilot working with the rescue teams below hooking the 100' rope to the victim.  Last year they did 90 rescues and put in  6,000 hours of team work.  Sheriff Jim Whalen came as a guest to the program and serves on the JHS&R Foundation Board.
