Amateur Volunteers Sought for AngelRide, Essex, CT, May 28, 2022

Wayne Gronlund, N1CLV, writes:


After a two year COVID hiatus, AngelRide (in-person) is coming back strong for 2022! As most of you know, AngelRide now supports the Arthur C. Luf Children’s Burn Camp! The one-day AngelRide Classic will take place on Saturday, 28 May 2022 (Memorial Day Weekend).
Beginning this year the AngelRide route has been moved from ARES Region 4 to ARES Region 2.  The Metric Century (100 km) ride is roughly a “figure 8” that will begin at Essex Fire Department. The middle of the “figure 8” (Rest Stops 1 & 3) will be at Chester Hose Co.  The top of the “figure 8” (Rest Stop 2) will be at St James Parish Hall in Higganum.
The Region 4 ARES Mobile Comms Unit (MCU4) will be deployed to the Essex Fire House and serve as the Net Control Station. I am looking for ham radio operators to setup at the two Rest Stops as well as at key locations (TBD) along the route. If you are interested and available to participate in this very worthwhile charity event, please advise by return email.
See the two attachments for more info. I will share additional details about the ride as they become available. 
Note to Dan KB1MMR – with your permission, we would like to use your 2m & 440 KB1MMR repeaters that have good coverage for the ride route. I’ll be in touch to discuss!
Please forward this email to any hams who you think might be interested in helping!

Thanx & 73, Wayne Gronlund, N1CLV
