March of Dimes March for Babies Communications Event 2016

Date: 05/01/16 Start: 7:30 AM End: 12:00 PM Location: History museum in San Jose
MAC Credit (What's this?): No

It is time again for the March of Dimes March for Babies amateur radio communications event.  This year, the event will happen on Sunday 1 May.  The new event location will be at the history museum at Kelley Park in San Jose at the corner of Senter Road and Phelan Avenue.  This is a completely new location that, I believe, will be much more radio friendly than down town San Jose.  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.  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 forward this email to him or her and tell them that no experience is necessary.  If you would like to volunteer, please reply to this email or call me at the number listed below.  Feel free to pass on my number and email address to anyone else who may want to join us.  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.

Contact me directly for positions available and position requests as I will move people around to accommodate different needs.
