The 2021 Niantic Bay Boardwalk 5K is scheduled for Saturday, October 16th, with a rain date for Sunday October 17th. This is a short event with the race starting at 10 AM and award ceremony at 11:30 AM. Report time at the Region 4 Mobile Communications Unit will be 8:30 AM to 9:00 AM.
The MCU4 will be located in the upper McCook Point Beach and Park lot. Early report time is required so communicators are out of the park before the runners start to assemble. The upper gate should be open for walk-in. If you would like to drive up to MCU4, please use the lower entrance, drive to the end of the parking lot and up the driveway to the top.
Eleven communicators will be needed. To date we only have three signed up. Start and finish are located at two different locations, plus I need 2 operators willing to walk in from each end of the boardwalk (1/3 from the end) and cover a checkpoint. The course leaves lower McCook Park, travels along Main Street, enters Cini Park, and then goes onto the boardwalk. Finish line is at the end of the boardwalk after Baptist Lane.
This is a GREAT opportunity to introduce newly licensed amateurs or persons interested in getting licensed to public service. Please ask someone to join you!
If you are available please send an email to: TimKC1TWR@gmail.com
Please include your cell and home phone numbers for the COMM Plan even if you have sent them for previous events. Include your T-Shirt size as well.
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
