The 2017-2018 season is dormant now as TNSAR estivates after 11 winter searches. There's always a chance for a summer search, and while summer trainings are not the norm you might still keep an eye out for them.

TNSAR elections for the 2018-2019 season were held on May 7th at an undisclosed and changed-at-the-last minute location, simply to foster suspicion and nurture conspiracy theories. The results:

President - Devin Heimstra
Vice President - Matt Jacobs
Secretary - Joanna Wright
Directors - Scott Meyer & Brad Altman

Andrew and Geoff's terms go to 2019. Devin, Matt and Joanna persevered fierce competion from a band of deafening crickets, while Scott weathered the election stress in Mexico and Brad endured the vertical jokes the team has relied on for years (decades, really), which Doug appreciated to finally not be on the receiving end of. Congratulations to all, to include those who were in the running.

Note that all the trainings, search reports, and newsletter from any particular season (past or present) are under the "Archives" menu drop down at the top of any page.

TNSAR has a wealth of pictures, taken mostly from trainings. If any pictures were taken on a training, you will find them under the annual training archives (see the drop down menu at the top) for that particular training (note that Internet Explorer does not [yet] display these pictures; yet another reason to try a web browser other than IE). Additionally, you can also look at all the organized pictures on one page.

TNSAR is always looking for fresh faces and new enthusiasm. We are a team of broad roles, interests and needs, to include but not limited to:

  • Searchers (skiers and sledders)
  • Comm Van personnel
  • Truck caretakers
  • Administrative
  • Public Relations
  • Grant and Donation management
  • WWW management
  • TGSR (the list here is endless)

If you are interested in any of these types of roles, or generally interested in TNSAR, please show up at the next general meeting to get your questions answered. The majority of the team representatives are not searchers; we have a variety of needs and seats for all. Come check us out!
