Dear <<First Name>>

Welcome to our newsletter for April, 2017.  Sincere thanks to Altius Technical Services for supporting Richard to travel to Las Vegas and deliver 2 workshops.  It was wonderful to meet so many skilled and competent rope technicians, and we hope that all who attended a workshop found it to be a valuable experience.

Richard will be returning to USA at the end of May as a presenter at the Mountain Rescue Association (MRA) National Conference, SARCon2017 in Boise, Idaho.  The conference presentation will be focused on Lightweight Backcountry Roping. Richard is also delivering a 2-day pre-conference workshop, see details below, but why not come along to both!
