‘Situational Awareness and Survival Mindset’ presentation to be offered

By Kim Kron

Wolf Creek Gun and Bow Association

On Wednesday, Oct. 27, the Wolf Creek Gun and Bow Association will host a 90-minute presentation entitled “Situational Awareness and Survival Mindset.” 

The presentation will be held at the Pagosa Lakes Property Owners Association Clubhouse located at 230 Port Ave. and will begin at 7 p.m.

The course will focus on strategies and daily practices to reduce your chance of becoming a victim. It will discuss concepts such as:

• Being aware of your surroundings/environment.

• Command presence/body language as a deterrent to an attacker.

• Crime avoidance.

• U.S. Air Force Col. John Boyd’s “OODA Loop” (observe, orient, decide, act).

• U.S. Army Lt. Col. Dave Grossman’s concept of “stress inoculation.”

• “Run, hide, fight.” 

The presenter, Chris Boyd, is a retired 30-year veteran of law enforcement in Southern California. He has trained both civilians and members of law enforcement in a variety of topics, including this course and surviving an active-shooter event.

This course is being provided free of cost as a service to the community by the Wolf Creek Gun and Bow Association. For those so inclined, donations will be accepted at the door.
