March of Dimes Walk America Communications Event 2013

Date: 04/27/13 Start: 7:30 AM End: 12:00 PM Location: Cesar Chavez Plaza in San Jose
MAC Credit (What's this?): No

It is time again for the March of Dimes Walk America amateur radio communications event.  The event will happen on 27 April.  The event location will again be in downtown San Jose.  However, the walk start and stop location will be Cesar Chavez Plaza.  As last year, we will be there no later than 7:30am and it will go until about noon.  We will have positions available for waterstops, checkpoints, bicycle, shadow, mobile, and net control as listed below.  Positions can be requested, but, final positions will be assigned by the event coordinator.  Lunch is normally provided as well as some sort of breakfast foods.

One of the main reasons for coordinating this event is to train people in a non-emergency situation.  If you know anyone who is a new ham that would like to volunteer, please let him or her know that no experience is necessary.  If you would like to volunteer, please sign up on this web page or send me an email at the address below.  Your continued help is appreciated by me and the March of Dimes team.

Please note this is not a MAC event and support is not being requested by any city.  No MAC evaluations or credit will be available for working this event.  If you want to work the event, you are working it purely for the health and welfare of the March of Dimes event participants.
