I NEED TO KNOW THIS WEEK  (July 12th ) IF YOU ARE HELPING BOTH DAYS AND STAYING OVERNIGHT!

It’s time again to seek volunteers for the Young’s Dairy Charity Bike Tour that will be on Saturday, July 20th and Sunday, July 21st. The two day tour covers several Ohio counties, comprising up to 100 miles, so a large number of ham radio operators will be needed. The tour starts at 8:00 AM on Saturday from Young’s Dairy, which is on Highway 68, north of Yellow Springs, and extends north to Ada Ohio. There is a bike path route for a portion of the return trip on day 2. We are not responsible for tracking riders on the bike path, but we may cover a few key intersections.

For any operators wanting to stay overnight in the dorm rooms at Ohio Northern University in Ada, where the riders stay, I WILL NEED TO KNOW THAT ASAP. For those not familiar with that option, I highly recommend it. The dorms are extremely nice and the organizers graciously provide them to at no cost to us. However, the organizers do have to pay for the rooms, and this is a charity event, so donations to offset the cost of the rooms are appreciated if you can manage it. Dinner and breakfast are included if you stay overnight, and these guys have an absolute blast up there. It’s really a great and entertaining time.

We are in need of very many operators for this event. Please consider coming out, if only for a portion of the day.

EVENT FREQUENCIES
For the southern part of the course we will be using the Springfield 145.310 (-) Repeater with a 82.5hz tone.
For the northern part of the course we will be using the Bellefontaine 147.000 (+) Repeater with 100hz tone.

Please contact Mike Crawford kc8gle@earthlink.net, if you have any questions or are interested in volunteering for this event.
