Check your calendars, we have two important upcoming public service events that will need lots of volunteers.
Sunday, May 31 is the Miller School Bike Race. This race takes place on the Miller School loop, with 4 race groups on the course in the morning and another 4 groups on the course in the afternoon. A number of AARC and CVRA members have volunteered, but more are needed. So if you have time on Sunday morning or Sunday afternoon, please let me know as soon as possible.
The MS150 Bike Tour de Vine is fast approaching. Check your calendars for Saturday and Sunday June 13 and 14. Many volunteers are needed for this event which has had AARC support for around 25 years. There are last minute changes to the courses, and details are still a bit fuzzy. Again this year, the tour will take place from Pollak Vineyard west of Crozet. This event requires manning 4-5 rest stops, as well as maintaining SAG vehicles on the course.
Both of these public service events are a great opportunity to get out and play radio in the field, and to showcase the Amateur Radio Service to the public. Don’t pass up on this chance to participate in AARC public service.
