The next TNSAR meeting of the 2014-2015 season is at 6:30 on Monday January 5th, at the Granlibakken ski hut. Come share your broken resolutions.

Congratulations and a hearty round of applaus to Steve Hoyt, who will take the pencil over as the newest TNSAR Newsletter author!

A hearty thanks to Moe's Original BBQ in Tahoe City for hosting a benefit for TNSAR on December 12th. Not only that, but the folks at Moe's stayed open for a dozen TNSAR members who straggled in after 10:30 PM on the 13th for some warm food after our first successful search of the 2014-2015 season.

Trainings our now being posted; RSVP and bring your OES card to start participating!

Here is a video of a 2013-2014 TNSAR helicopter training held with Placer County Sheriff's and Placer County SO Air OPS.

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!

The goal of TNSAR is to conduct fast and safe rescues, and to help educate the public on winter safety. If you would like to help TNSAR in this cause, please use the following PayPal donate link. Thanks!
