Local Area Public Service Events for 2017

Check your calendars and make sure you reserve the dates of the events that are most interesting to you.  Events that require the largest rosters are the bike races in April and July.  The extreme runs require fewer volunteers, but the events last much longer.  For example, the UROC long course is 100K with a cutoff time at the last rest stop of 19 hours.  As we get closer to each event, I will put out a call for volunteers, and as soon as I have the roster of ham volunteers, I will send out assignments, and other relevant information.  Don’t worry if you haven’t done any of these before, I will match you with one of the more experienced volunteers, so you will get “on the job’ training before you take a solo assignment.
