Groton RR photo“Bo” Budinger, WA1QYM writes on PART/WB1GOF-List:

This year, the 12th Groton Road Race will be held on Sunday, April 25. Approximately 40 Radio Operators are needed to fill the necessary roles during the day.

They will have three periods during the day where they will need increasing numbers of volunteers. The first period starts at 0900 with a crew to help the parking team. The second period starts at 1130 with a crew for the 5k race. The third period starts at 1230 with the largest crew for the 10k race.

Typically everyone is secured from this 10k race by 1430. Handhelds are required; there are only a limited number of positions where it is reasonable to be standing outside of a parked vehicle to use a mobile rig.

If you are interested in helping out please send your e-mail to Ralph Swick at There will be a short pre-race meeting the weekend before.
