If you are at the fair make sure you swing by our booth and buy Hot Buttered Corn. Selling corn at the fair accounts for 1/3 of our yearly budget. We have been selling corn at the fair since 1962. Our booth is staffed by our volunteers, it takes a lot of people to run the booth each day of the fair, with 8-12 people per shift, and two 8 hour shifts each day. ... See MoreSee Less

We conducted a field training session on Mission Preparation at our compound. This training covers the aspects of our pageout process, and gives our members a chance to practice preparing personal and unit equipment as well as our vehicles to roll out on a mission response. Special thanks to Tim Flaherty from astegos.org (Astegos.org) for donating lunch to our unit for this training! ... See MoreSee Less

July 4th Mission: Subject activated a PLB on the Kramer trail on the pass near Kramer lake. Custer SAR contacted IMSARU to assist. 10 IMSARU members responded and made their way to Redfish lake. While on route Two Bear Air (out of Montana) was contacted and they sent their helicopter crew down. A 4 person quick response IMSARU team was sent across Redfish lake to start up the trail. Two Bear arrived and was able to extract the subject, the IMSARU quick response team was called back. Subject was in good health and an IMSARU team took the subject back to Boise. The rest of the members arrived back in town just as the fireworks started. Thank you to our volunteer members who missed out on their holiday plans ... See MoreSee Less

Ok, I know this is a long shot but here goes... I am a retired science teacher from Timberline High School who is now Project & Education Director at Idaho Business for the Outdoors. We are bringing Christopher Swain (the only person to swim the entire Columbia River) to Idaho in August to swim the Boise River from its source in the Sawtooth Mtns. to where it enters the Snake River near Parma. You can get more information on this unique educational expedition at our website <www.idahobo.org> but why I'm reaching out to see if any IMSR member could potentially join us from Redfish Lake to Atlanta ID, Aug. 8-11. There will only be 6 of us and we have packhorses to carry our gear into Spangle Lake and then we'll be backpacking downstream to Atlanta, water monitoring as we go. The trail may be cleared but there are no guarantees from the Forest Service. This will be a great opportunity for IMSR to get some great publicity and help us & the students of Idaho in the process. Thank you for all you do and for considering this unusual invitation. www.idahostatesman.com/news/local/education/article230089124.html?fbclid=IwAR3N1jJHuHSEsv-e8Butif...

Wow.

use to do that all the time

On Feb 2 we were at the ULLR FESTIVAL AT BOGUS BASIN.

So what is an ULLR festival? ULLR is a Norse traditional god associated with archery, skiing and snow. Well, this year there was snow on the ground and ski slopes but what fell from the sky on this day (and pretty much all day), was rain. That didn’t stop the skiers from coming to the resort and participating in the festival. There were many people dressed in Norse or “Viking” type clothing and head-wear. Our booth was one of 14 vendors, games and associations that were represented just outside of the main lodge.
IMSARU members had numerous opportunities to answer questions about our organization and educate the public on what we do. The K9 members of course were a huge attraction to both children and adults.
