Entirely inappropriate fora for this.

I think getting the word out and letting patrollers know the NSP Auditor's Report is available for download is appropriate. Only NSP members have access to this report. There is nothing wrong with keeping dues paying members informed on where their money is spent.

You're right, catskills: knowing where to find the information is important.

Discussions of it on the open forum.........not so much. As long as it isn't splattered all over this forum, I see no reason not to make patrollers aware of it.

Since NSP and PSIA work out of the same building, and have similar websites, and accessories catalogs, you would think we would have a similar audit report for PSIA on the members-only website, but I can't find one, and I don't think it is there. I thik posting this on the forum here gives me a reaason to be curious about my own organization, and does not seem to say anything bad about NSP.

Now the American Red Cross might be another story. Out in front of our building this morning was a "disaster relief vehicle" with Large American Red Cross markings. I don't begrudge them vehicles, but a top of the line BMW SUV with all leather interior seems a little upscale for a charity's working rolling stock.

Cloth seats not good enough? How many people had to donate how much money for them to be able to have leather seats? Gee, FOG, it's always easy to spend OPM (other people's money). :

Maybe, but in DC it likely belongs to headquarters. If it had been donated it would certainly have had a big sign saying donated by xyz dealership. I think the game is that someone connected is appointed to high position in the Red Cross, and makes a huge salary, in exchange for which the Red Cross gets its share of the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC). The politicals routinely twist arms to get 100% participation, especially in the military. Big CFC recipients then appoint folks like Liz Dole, then wife of the Majority Leader to be President of the American Red Cross, or similar large charities.

So skier_j, why not? It's a not for profit organization. It has 25,000 members, most don't even know the NSP web site exists, much less how to find 'downloads'. Why not, don't you believe that a healthy discussion is a good thing? Heck, we have just been through 2 years of it to become a member driven organization... again. What a better way to get the members involved than disuss the issues.

Please, I don't want to hear from the Patroller Committee. Thank you.

Bryan, I think debate of those issue is laudable and desirable I am certain we would all be on the same side---should a discussion ensue.

My feeling is that there are better places for that discussion. Why not take it to the NSP forum?

I just don't believe this is the appropriate venue for any laundry airing.

I'll see ya Sat am with pink flamingo in hand!

skier_j, no one has quoted or discussed the particulars of that budget. The link brought it to the attention of those with authorization to view it. The members of this forum are extremely aware of where to draw the line between a public issue and an internal or confidential issue. If that line is ever crossed, the moderation team will assist in editing or deleting content deemed inapproriate by this group of professionals.

Meanwhile, I'm glad that Epic can serve as a source of useful information and reference to patrollers, and as an effective interface and sounding board between the Patrol members and the public. I have learned things here and obtained insights into the job you guys do. That to me is valuable.

Pink flamingos... must be a new form of rescue equipment.

I can't pass this up. You have to ask Jeff about him forgetting to bring the Pink Flamingo and having to leave the refresher to go home to Bonnie and get the Pink Flamingo from Bonnie.

Or was it the other way....hummmm. Bonnie, what's the real story with this? Where was the Pink Flamingo by the way?

By the way, jeff did a great job. thanks.

Jeez, Bon' don't get your hockey hot. I misspelled your name to protect the innocent. : [If you like that one, I got a million of them. Where's that thread on fibbing?]

You can't get out of this by diverting attention to my lack of spelling skills.

I still want to know who gave whom the Pink Flamingo.

By the way, hows the foot?

The Flamingo has a history. I'll tell you about it sometime, when other ears are not listening!

I got the stitches out today, and Chuck kind of pulls on it and it opens up like a mouth........."Oh, not ready yet!"

No kidding!?!?

He superglued some steri-strips on it to keep it shut.

Why did you get Chuck to do it? Jeff knows how to use tweezers. Stitches are simple. Ask him about the black dress he had so sew one new years eve. What the ski patrol will do for a living. Sigh.

LBD? NYE? BAD!
Chuck is my doctor and I like visiting him. What other doctor gives hugs and makes house calls!
