Honored Hero Run 2018 – 21 October 2018

From Jimmy Wille, AE5YP:

I am needing volunteers for the Honored Hero Run 2018. The early assignments will start at about 5:30am-6:00am. We usually are wrapping up around 12:00pm-1:00pm depending on assignments. The event will be held in and on the Trinity Park trails and staged at the Duck Pond Pavilion, as usual.

Please contact me directly at the e-mail below and include name, call, shirt size, and radio capability. A few of the assignments will require a Go-Kit radio instead of the HT due to position, if you have such ability, please let me know.

Jimmy, AE5YP –
