Good morning everyone
It’s that time of year to volunteer for the Bike MS 150. This year’s bike MS will be October 13th and 14th. We will need a lot of volunteers this year. They want to put as many amateur radio operators in vehicles and at stops as possible.
For those not familiar with bike MS, It’s a bike ride from Jacksonville to Daytona Beach on Saturday and then returns on Sunday. This event involves three counties including St. Johns Flagler and Volusia. In Volusia we cover one rest stop and the finish/start line located at the Daytona Beach Hilton. In addition we have one or two intersections in case of an accident or for bike information.
Positions are filling fast and its first come first serve on positions in vehicles and rest stops. To sign up goto.
Please sign up for all positions you’re wanting to fill. Due to limitations on how many volunteers for each area it’s better to apply for more than one. You will be required to have a 2M mobile type radio with at least 50 watts.
I will post updates as I get them. The final route will be announced a few weeks before the event.
If you have any questions or concerns please contact me.
