Oxford SAR Dog Team
Update 09th Sept 2011 Windy Point
After the training camp at Windy Point was postponed due to snow we were able to have this on the weekend of the 1st Sept. Was a very good weekend with a little bit more snow falling on the first night. We also took one of the IPStar Satellite kits with us and set it up for communication in and out of the area and it worked perfectly.
