Buzzards Bay Triathlon, September 16, 2018, Request for Amateur Radio Support

Rob Macedo, KD1CY, writes on the SEMARA list:
There has been a request for Amateur Radio support for the Buzzards Bay Triathlon on Sunday 9/16/18. This event has been supported in the past by a few amateur operators in the area but not in the last couple of years. The total need is for ten amateurs. A group in Western Massachusetts who deals with the organizer of this event and others in Western Massachusetts has about four hams committed and the need is for ten. Are there any local amateurs interested in supporting this event? Details are below from Matt Brennan, NM1B, and you can reply to me off list and copy the email address Matt lists below if you’re interested.

Hi All,

 Max Performance has asked us if we’d be able to provide communications assistance to the Buzzards Bay Triathlon this Sunday in Westport, MA. The start time is 9 AM, so we would be meeting around 8 AM. We are trying to gauge interest as to whether or not we’d be able to assist with this event. 

 This is their final triathlon of the season. They have not had ham support at it for the last couple years. 

 More information on the race can be found here:

 Please let know if you’d be able and willing to assist this Sunday. 

Thanks and 73,

-Matt, NM1B
