To all who participated in the Crash Scene at Wing Ding 38
Thank you all!
I would like to thank everyone who participated in the Live Crash Screen at Wing Ding. It was a great success. We had approximately 25 people involved in one form or another. The National staff, the Rider Ed Director and the National Director for GWRRA was very excited and proud of what you did. We heard a lot of comments, like how did the accident happen? And Wow, it looks so real! But the best was, I learned a lot about how and what to do! So believe it or not you played your roles perfectly!
Later I was asked how long we have been practicing to do the crash scene. I kind of laugh and said about 30 minutes before the event! I told them and the national staff that they all knew what to do because we do a lot of training in Region H. They were over whelmed. So thanks everyone.
Special thanks go out to Red Roussel and Merlin Mayon, for coming to Wing Ding and helping me with the crash screen. Red did an outstanding job playing a drunk driver running over a motorcycle. Merlin took a lot of great pictures so we could use for training. Both did an outstanding job.
The last thing I would like to add is this, “Normally we teach only one crash scene scenario, but at Wing Ding we did a 4 scene scenario. Great job and thanks to everyone.
