I was one of several members from Cowichan Search and Rescue
attending the training session at Eagle Bay, near Salmon Arm B.C.,
in September 2008.
This was my first U.T.S. course and I am still amazed at how much I
learned from the instructors and teammates I was lucky enough to
work with. The entire weekend was spent trying to "solve" a very
complex case using tracking skills, sign-cutting, mapping every
detail, and keeping logs on information discovered. In the end we
were able to describe exactly what happened, every step of the way
until the very dramatic and tragic ending. It was like participating
in a giant game of "Clue" and very addicting. I am looking forward
to attending another U.T.S. course in the near future.
I'm convinced our instructors could be very successful
script-writers for their own Movies!
Also, the accomodations and meals were outstanding. I highly
recommend this Course location to anyone who may have the
opportunity to attend a Tracking Course at Eagle Bay.
