The Tour D’ Organics is a unique bike ride event in the western county, divided up into four routes of 16, 35, 65, and 100 miles. 7 Rest stops are located at organics farms and businesses along the routes. http://tourdorganics.com/rest-stops.html We are looking for radio operators to staff the rest stops. Nice cushy, low key duty. Good food, shade, what else could you ask for. This year, the Tour will be organizing the SAGs (registering, assigning times, routes etc.) If you are interested in being a Radio SAG, please sign up both here AND on the Tour’s volunteer webpage. http://tourdorganics.com/volunteer.html This will be a repeater event. Rest stops 1, 5, 6 & 7 should be an easy hop for an HT. Rest stops 2, 3 & 4 and Radio SAGS would be better served using a mobile rig. We would like as many Radio Sags to be APRS equiped as possible. Route maps can be found online at http://tourdorganics.com/routes.html
Radio Hams are needed for Rest stops, and Radio SAGS. Signup coming soon.
