THE 2012 SAN JUAN ISLAND MARATHON
Sunday, June 3, 2012 from 7:00 am until 3:00 pm
Required Qualifications:  SJCARS Affiliation, + FCC:  Tech, General
or Advanced License.

Come join the fun providing support communications for the 2012 San Juan Island Marathon.  You’ll bring your mobile rig and/or HT to pre-assigned locations on the marathon course.  You’ll coordinate with event net control.  You’ll be on station at assigned locations on the course indicating the marathon’s progress by identifying the first and last runners in the marathon and half marathon to net control.  You’ll field safety communications requests from runners and observers to net control.  Above all you will convey any and all safety considerations to net control who has direct and immediate access to EMS dispatch during this event.

This is an excellent practice for emergency communications if communications were interrupted in our county.  Anyone with an Amateur Radio license affiliated with SJCARS is encouraged and absolutely welcome to participate.  NEW HAMS ARE ESPESCIALLY ENCOURAGED.  It’s honestly easy;  and a really good way to hook up with our SJCARS team;  for you to practice in providing coverage of the county in the event of emergency communications.  It’s very good practice and it’ll bring you up to speed really quickly.

Participants will be awarded a T-Shirt (and the possibility of food festivities depending upon chonographical assignment duties on the course.)
Please comment with your willingness to participate (or just comment) and indicate your email address for follow up for your station assignments as you are willing.  Please include the times during the event you are available.

Respectfully Submitted
