PCSAR's indoor meeting is usually the second Wednesday of each month at the Gritman Medical Center in Moscow, Idaho. Training follows a short business meeting. Most meetings are in the executive boardroom on the third floor (new part, south section). Sometimes that venue is busy, so we meet in the third floor classroom (old part, west/south section).
Outdoor training is usually the Sunday following the indoor meeting, but see the schedule for variations.
Contact our President or Secretary for the latest information.
