Volunteers for Point to Point race – August 6th 2022

Hi everyone,

We’re looking for few more folks to have a full crew for operating the P2P race on August 6th. Volunteer information:

  • Individuals must hold a Technician level license or higher. Experience operating public service events preferred but not required.
  • We’d like operators to bring their own equipment – 2 meter mobile radio with a good antenna (ie not a rubber duck), but we have extra equipment to lend out if needed.
  • Ability to commit to at least 4-5 hours outdoors on Saturday

Free food and drinks will be provided to all volunteers by VSECU after the event!
Please reach out to contact (at) w1bd (dot) net if you’d like to assist!
