9th Annual Hope For The Warriors Run

9th Annual Hope For The Warriors RunThe annual Hope for the Warriors Run will be held on Saturday  November 12th this year.  We are very short on operators and need to have as many volunteers as possible.

This event is made possible only because Amateur Radio Operators step up to the plate to provide communications.

I must  have commitments no later than November 9TH  to give the race director our list of operators by the November 10th deadline. .

Operators should email me at w2hcb@arrl.net or register on the GSBARC website http://www.gsbarc.org

Please feel free to pass the word to all public service oriented hams that might be interested in helping out on this very worthwhile event.

Thank you and   73
