Nick & I had a massive turn out today at the Minnesota Federation Of County Fair's yearly convention held today at the Double Tree hotel in Bloomington MN.
We presented a specialized hybrid spotter training course that trained key fair & festival safety planing & decision makers from county fair boards from all counties of the state of Minnesota.
The group trained on the basics of weather spotting as well as how to become StormReady with the NWS and also on enacting a severe weather action and mitigation plan for their county's outdoor fair when severe weather threatens.
The spotter training today was more well received that expected with 118 persons in attendance, A great way to kick off the 2013 spotter training season!
Tornadoes by the numbers!
