Every year, the Annual Training for the Maine Association for Search and Rescue (MASAR) is coordinated and hosted by a MASAR-Certified SAR unit. In 2014 Maine Mounted Search and Rescue was the host. See links below for details - and click here for information about MASAR!
Training was held at the UMaine Recreation Center. Housing was in a dorm across the street with actual HEAT and BEDDING (YES, search dogs were allowed in the dorms, in crates). Plus, registration fee included meals at the dining commons next door AND use of the fabulous gym and pool / sauna / hot tubin the Rec Center itself.
