Successful OSI Launch Event

The Outdoor Safety Institute, up and running for about 18 months now, had a belated but successful "launch party" on January 20th, 2011. The event was held at OSI's offices in Bozeman's TechRanch. Over fifty attendees enjoyed thai food, beverages, door prizes & learned a bit about what OSI does. Thanks for coming to everyone who attended!

Here are a few photos of the event:
