Hi everyone!

I'd like to announce there will be a synthetic winch line repair class at the Annual this year. Sunday morning, after the BoD Pancake Breakfast, I will hold a demo on how to splice your Dyneema line. There are practice ropes, fids and needles available on a first come, first serve basis. There will be printed instructions for you to follow as well.

We'll start with some rope basics, and then splice a loop at the end of the line and lock stitch the tail. The demo will also include a way to secure the buried tail without the use of a needle, and how to splice your line if it breaks in the middle.

It will start at 11:00 am Sunday morning in front of the stage. I hope to see you there!
