Tour de Bass Bike Ride coming up!

We're looking for 30 volunteers to help us provide communications for the 2009 Tour de Bass bike races to be held on October 24, 2009.

The event starts at the fabulous Bass Pro Shop in Springfield, where net control will be set up. With 8 rest stops and 4 sweep vehicles, 4 sag vehicles, 3 race repair teams and someone assigned to the event coordinator, this will be quite the event.

St. Johns was very pleased with the operation we worked at the Nixa Bike Ride back in March and invited amateur radio to once again fulfill their communications needs.

The races will go through Springfield, Nixa, Republic, Willard, and Strafford. We'll be using the 145.270 repeater for the main traffic for the event and the 442.275 as the talk-around for the event.

If you are interested in participating, please e-mail James Adkins, KB0NHX, at [email protected]
