PSE: Resolution Run 31 December

8:00 pmto10:00 pm

We have been invited to join the New Year’s Eve festivities related to the Resolution Run. The run starts at 8:00 PM on Sunday, December 31, at Beavercreek High School and covers the usual 5 k course in the nearby neighborhood. We are looking for quite a few hams to provide communications around the course. As in the past, we use our car headlights to illuminate the way for the runners. We will use the 147.165 (+ offset, 123.0 Hz tone) so a handheld will be adequate to do this one.

All interested hams should come to the school at least an hour before the race start to get an assignment and to partake of the appetizer buffet. Please bring something to share. XWARN will provide punch. Snacks will be in the XWARN trailer and assignments can be picked up at the DARA Communications Truck. Both will be parked behind the school; enter the lot off Fudge Dr.

There will also be a VE Test session at the school beforehand. Watch the usual message space for details about the start time.

Also, in years past, we have helped place the generator lights around the course. We could use six volunteers who can help with towing them out and back. The lights are not very heavy and require a 2 inch ball. We do this as a team effort, so there is not much physical effort and on the job training is the norm. We start around 4:30 PM and pick up the lights as the runners begin to clear the course. If you are willing to help with towing, please let n8ado@arrl.net know.

After the run, Mike N8XGA and Nancy KC8RMT are inviting all interested hams to come to their house for a party. This is definitely the last event for this year; don’t miss it.
