I am in search of at least one ham radio volunteer for communications at 
the GatorHead Regatta at Newnan's Lake this Saturday.  GARC participated 
in radio communications for this event about 5 years ago, and it was a lot 
of fun, and a great community service.

The race officials need communications and their FRS radios don't reach 
the 3-miles across the lake.  GARC has two ICOM hand-held radios that can 
be borrowed for use at these types of events, so don't worry if you don't 
have a working radio--one can be provided for you.

If you do have your own ham radio gear, this is a great event to test your 
emergency communications equipment. Crossband repeater, portable repeater, 
go-kit, battery packs, antennas, and anything else you might need/want. 
Put your equipment and skills to the test with an actual event that can 
validate your readiness.

Event:  GatorHead Regatta
Service: Communications Support - Race Officials
Date:  Saturday, December 10, 2005
Time:  8:00 AM - 3:30 PM
Location: Newnan's Lake (G.A.R. BoatHouse)

Please email me for more information or to sign-up.

Thank you.
