Corvallis Kiwanis Fall Festival Run PRA Communications. Operators needed: 092913
#1
The Peak Radio Association will again be providing safety communications for the annual Fall Festival Run. This run is hosted by the Kiwanis Club of Corvallis.

Date: September 29, 2013
Time: 0800 Hours to approximately 1130 Hours.
Location: Corvallis.
Contact: Al, WB7RAB wb7rab@arrl.net 541-738-0978

The operator sign-up for this event began at our last PRA meeting. Operators signed-up so far are: W0ULF; KA7CRA; KF7RAR; KF7NAY.

If you wish to participate in this event or if your availability status has changed, please contact me as listed above or on the PAR repeater system.

The operators will provide race and safety communications between the race coordinators and various locations along the course. There will be a net control to direct communications for the event. The primary working channel for this event will be the Mary's Peak 145.13 MHz repeater. This repeater will be isolated from the PRA system for the duration of this event. Operators will provide their own radio equipment and any personal items they may need. A lawn chair may be useful at some of the locations. The communications provided by our club last year were very successful and impressed the race coordinators with our capabilities. I know we will have another great event this year.

Thanks,

Al

Just a reminder to everyone - it is going to be WET and WINDY tomorrow morning - so plan accordingly! We'll likely be out in the weather, so good gear is a must!

Quick update - the Fall Festival has been cancelled for tomorrow, but the race is still on! What does that mean? Well, I'm not entirely sure. I think that it means there won't be nearly as many people or tents around, and that we might all get better parking spaces and might get to go home early.

I have a feeling that the serious runners will show up and run faster than normal to hurry up and get out of the rain, and the more-casual runners might not show up at all.

I'd love to hear your thoughts, Al.

I emailed Al to let him know if the rain is heavy I will not be making the drive up from down here. The roads were bad tonight with multiple wrecks and LOTS of water. I went through a monster puddle tonight on I105 and they ended up closing one lane. I have not seen this much rain in a LONG time.
