The Ft. Ritchie Triathlon in Ft. Ritchie, MD -- Sunday, Aug 4, 2019
The ARA is providing 2 meter ham radio communications support for the bicycle segment of the race. We have one position that still needs to be filled to 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, so if you have a few hours on Sunday 8/4/19 please consider volunteering a few hours of your day. Full disclosure: this event takes place at the same time of the Berryville Hamfest.
