At this weeks Board meeting, it was announced that the University of Colorado will not require ATV support for this fall's football games.  As a result, I have removed our ATV training dates from the 2019 Training Calendar and deleted the calendar event entries. 

The Board is working on the details of how this will impact our ATV training program going forward, since these games were used as a key training vehicle for ATV. There will be more information to follow as detailed plans are developed.

It is very likely that we will be asked to provide situational awareness support for other campus activities, from time to time, for other events not centered around Folsom Field.

Thanks ……..Jerry
