I got the following off the local ARES list email server.
If you can spare some time the following event is fun and will test your abilities as a communicator.
Contact Harold if you can help out
I would appreciate it if you would help me by spreading the word throughout your local ham radio communities.
Once again the Canadian Ski Marathon is spooling up. This year we are looking forward to much more “normal” conditions and by that I mean snow!
The CSM depends on ham radio volunteers to provide important and timely safety and logistical communication for the benefit of the skiers. The amateur radio CSM web page (http://www.radio-1.ca) is up and running with 2010 information. The event runs between Buckingham and Lachute in western Quebec – snow or shine.
If you would like to volunteer this year, please email Harold VA3UNK ( firstname.lastname@example.org). Although I can’t promise anything, assignment requests are generally first-come, first-served.
Please join me the second weekend in February (13th-14th) and help make 37th our best year yet!
Bye for now,
