Looking for Amateur Radio Operators for the Canadian Ski Marathon 2012 - February 11-12, 2012 in Western Quebec/Ottawa Valley

I received this message since I receive the Montreal Amateur Radio Club (MARC) club e-mail and I thought I should share it with you.

From: Harold Hamilton

I would appreciate it if you would help me by spreading the word throughout your local ham radio communities. We are looking for radio operators.

Once again the Canadian Ski Marathon (CSM) is spooling up. This year is the 46th anniversary for the CSM. Radio is a few years behind that.

The CSM depends on ham radio volunteers to provide important and timely safety and logistical communication for the benefit of the skiers. The amateur radio CSM web page (http://www.radio-1.ca) is up and running with 2012 information. The event runs between Buckingham and Lachute in western Quebec - snow or shine.

If you would like to volunteer this year, please email Harold VA3UNK (radio1@admin2.ca). Although I can't promise anything, assignment requests are generally first-come, first-served.

Please join me the second weekend in February (11th-12th) and help make 39th our best year yet!

Bye for now,
Harold va3unk
