Washington State SAR Comes to Republic

Ferry County Search and Rescue (SAR) is fortunate to be hosting the 2017 Washington State SAR Conference.  This annual conference provides multiple specialty training courses to SAR members, from lecture-style training to hands-on skills training.  The Conference is a great economic boost to small communities, like Ferry County, as the hundreds of attendees will spend money at local resorts, restaurants, and stores during the week-long event.  This year, pre-Conference events will be happening March 15-18, and the Conference will take place from the 19th-21st.

SAR teams provide a critical function assisting law enforcement and emergency management rescue efforts.  "Each member is a volunteer skilled in rapid response rescue techniques, First Aid and CPR, and trained in using specialized rescue equipment. (from https://www.facebook.com/Friends-of-Ferry-County-Search-and-Rescue-367135423900/)."  

Ferry County SAR is an entirely volunteer organization and we are so thankful that we have this service in our community.  During the conference, be sure to give a sincere "thank you" to the SAR members you see around town.

Camp in Style!

Want to go camping, but looking for something roomier than a tent?  Consider renting an RV!  Renting an RV is much like renting a larger cabin (as opposed to a camper cabin).  Depending on the size of the RV, they can sleep anywhere from 2 - 4 adults with or without several children.  Many have complete kitchens and modern bathroom facilities.  Sofas, rocker-recliners, built-in shelves, and computer tables/desks are other amenities that may be found in RV's, making them more useful than similarly-priced cabins.  Renting an RV makes sense, because you can be on vacation, yet still enjoy all the comforts of home.   

Winchester RV Park has recently acquired a used, older model 5th wheel, which we have almost completely remodeled, and it is now ready for renting... just in time for 4th of July weekend!  Some of the changes include new wood-like flooring, a full-size (10 cu ft) refrigerator-freezer, a regular flush toilet, and new blinds.  It comes furnished with brand new bed & bathroom linens, Corelle service for 4, silverware, new pots & pans, and a few cooking utensils.  It may not be completely flawless, but it is clean and comfortable!  If you're looking for a place to stay long-term, we offer reduced rates for longer stays.

Please call if you are interested in renting this "gently used" 5th wheel for a night, or for as long as you need it!  Happy Camping!
