Tour de Rocklin Support - Sunday, Oct 9, 2016
WPARC is invited to assist with SAG and checkpoint support for the return of this regional bicycle event. The Tour de Rocklin has been on hiatus for the past two years, but it's back! If you can drive and monitor portions of the course offering to assist cyclists ("SAG wagon"), or set up and operate mobile radios to staff a checkpoint for a few hours, then come out to enjoy some fun and exercise your radio. If you would like to volunteer then Michael Buck K6BUK is taking names and would like to hear from you!
