We've pasted Gordy's email below. Please take a minute to read it over, and pass it along to friends, family and riding buddies.

People who are interested need to read the flyer carefully, all the way to the bottom. They MUST submit an application in advance, by Sept 13. Walk-in's will not be accepted.   Applications can be downloaded from the department website  at or obtained from the Albuquerque office.
