UPDATE! Garry Laing (W3GTL), the member who coordinates ARA durng this event, recently informed us that Racine Racing cancelled the Fort Ritchie Triathlon for 2020.
The Ft. Ritchie Triathlon in Ft. Ritchie, MD -- Sunday, Aug 2, 2020
The ARA provides 2 meter ham radio communications support for the bicycle segment of the race. Volunteers operate along the country roads using their car mobiles or handie talkie. The ARA has assisted with communications for this event for the last few years, and I have always found it a rewarding experience; if you have a few hours on Sunday 8/2/2020 please consider volunteering a few hours of your day. Full disclosure: this event takes place at the same time of the Berryville Hamfest.
