Saturday, October 24, the Dayton District Cross Country meet will be held in Cedarville.

The current plan is to have twelve races and they will be spaced out more than usual, so we will need as many ham radio volunteers as possible to cover the event.

We need to gather at the race course at 8:00 AM and the last race should be complete around 6:00 PM. This makes for a long day. If you would like to volunteer, but cannot commit to the whole time, please state that and we will see what can be arranged. Also, I anticipate that due to the lack of events so far this season, there may be quite a few of you wanting to participate. I negotiated with the organizer to remove the cap on the number that we can have, but that means that the event will not be able to provide lunches as in the past. (Bring your own food).

More details will be released as we get closer to the event. To volunteer, please contact Bob Baker N8ADO at n8ado@arrl.net
