Off the Front Century Bicycle Ride Needs Communications Volunteers

CARP has been approached by the Off the Front organization to assist with communications for it’s upcoming inaugural Charity Ride to be held on October 9th, 2010. There will be a four rides: the Century, the Metric Century, the 25-Mile course, and Family Ride. This is really short notice for an event of this magnitude, but I am sure we can pull together and with the help of the other clubs in the area help provide the much needed communications for the event.

We are currently working out the details and will have more info to follow as it becomes available. Due to the size of the event, at this time, we estimate that we will need 20-24 Amateur Radio operators for the event. This number should allow for relief staff and coverage for those who can not work the entire event. We are working with with the other area clubs to help pool resources for the event.
