Volunteers are needed to work SAG and rest stops for the Tour de Tulsa
bicycle ride coming up on May 3, according to Jay, AD5PE.
This all day event is a 100 mile bike tour of west Tulsa and Creek County
(along with shorter routes). We need 10-12 hams primarily to SAG - patrol
the route looking for riders having problems (medical, mechanical, or just
wore out - it is the first ride of the season). It helps to have a vehicle
that can haul a rider or two and their bikes, but this is not essential.
There are also stationary spots if your vehicle isn't up to that. A
dual-band mobile also is useful as we may use the Tulsa Amateur Radio Club link system due to
the large area to cover - but we'll use 2 meters too, so if you don't have
UHF, we just keep you closer to town. Same thing for HTs - we can keep you
closer to the repeater or loan you a mag mount. We even have loaner radios.
This is a fun and laid back event, and great practice for directed nets.
Consider it ARES training if you're new or need a refresher.
