Upcoming Public Service Events

Chris KC4CMR wanted to give an update on some upcoming public service events.

First, Pedal the Parkway is coming up this Saturday May 3, we’re looking good on weather and support.

We’ve also been asked to provide communications for the Triathlon again this year.  The event proved so popular, they do it twice a year now, in June and in September.

I send this to the group to get as much notice out there as I have.. It’s possible WAARC could receive a donation again this year. So, since all club members benefit, I hope most members will consider helping if you are available. The real service is an opportunity to practice our communications skills, orderly flow of information, being in public view, showcase our abilities, working with the professional emergency services and for new hams to get experience. The event people are grateful to know the participants are being monitored for their safety too.

Please consider helping out with the triathlon if you have some time. These events are rather fun and the race participants enjoy our cheering them on.

The June Triathlon is June 7 & 8.
