Hey board,

want to post up about a great opportunity this weekend. North America Outdoor Institute and the City of Wasilla will be hosting the 1st Annual Wasilla Safe and Sound Conference. It will be on Saturday from 10am - 4pm at the Menard Memorial Sports Complex.

There will be a lot at the conference, chainsaw safety, aviation safety, communication resources, winter auto preparedness, avalanche safety, snowmachine safety, financial preparedness, fire safety, survival food preparation, as well as many more.

If you attend the 1.5 hour snowmachine safety meeting, you can buy a new $150 helmet for $45. Great deal. Free public skate. Many great prizes like a flight seeing trip around the valley. NOLS will be selling their great outdoors gear on sale too.

More info can be found at www.naoiak.org.

Please pass this along with friends and family. Grab your family and show up for a bit. Stuff for the kids, prizes, gear, and people to meet.

Safe Journeys and Adventures
