Northern Pen - - FOCUS - NORTH­ERN PENIN­SULA, NL

The Plum Point and Flower’s Cove Ju­nior Cana­dian Ranger (JCR) pa­trols took part in the Tracker Train­ing Course on Oct 14 and 15 at Three Mile Lake.

War­rant Of­fi­cer Keith Wheeler and Cana­dian Rangers Russ Mars­den, Dwight Macey, Anne Gould, Rod Pye and Cliff Doyle taught the 29 JCRs the art of track­ing through three ba­sic rules: look­ing for foot­prints, bro­ken branches, and lit­ter.

All of the JCRs en­joyed their first overnight out­ing of the year.

“We can’t for­get the adult com­mit­tee vol­un­teers who keep watch over our JCRs and made sure they had great meals,” said Ver­nice Rose, pres­i­dent of the adult com­mit­tee with the Flower’s Cove Ju­nior Rangers pa­trol.

“Thanks to all who helped make this week­end a great one.”
