    We will meet Sunday July, 10, 2022 in meeting room 1 at Carteret Health Care for a very useful first aid training focused on some of the scenarios we could face in the field or on the water enjoying the outdoor activities we enjoy. This training will focus on the treatment to stop arterial bleeding. This training will be led by a Carteret Health Care Emergency Room Nurse that has first hand knowledge providing this type of care. We will meet at 3:00pm sharp and will go over some business and select and sign up for some upcoming draw hunts that are available. We will discuss the hunting opportunities and sign up for several weekends from 3:00-4:00pm and then we will have the Stop the Bleed training from 4:00-5:00pm.
