Merry Christmas

by Doug Houston, President, NSA |

With another year coming to a close, it has been a good one for the National Smokejumper Association. Members now number 1800 including 142 life members, and counting.

As I, and my wife Paige (also an x-jumper) reflect back on this year, it had been a pleasure to meet several members and we look forward to doing the same in 2006. 2006 will give several opportunities to meet some of your old jumper friends or to meet new ones. We will have meetings and socials in Reno, Cave Junction, Or., and Wenatchee, Washington. There are also several trails projects that could give you that same "bonding" experience that we all used to know and cherish.

So, until then, Paige and I would like to wish you all a Very Merry Christmas and the best for the holidays.

Doug and Paige Houston
