Discovery Classic – Looking for Ham Radio Volunteers

The Discovery Classic needs you! After an eight year lapse, San Benito County will be hosting a bicycle event that will be known as the Discovery Classic. Formally called the Condor Classic, this bike ride will be scaled back for this year with two routes that will start at the Vet’s building in downtown Hollister that will travel throughout the backroads of the county. A route geared toward families will head down Southside Road to Tres Pinos and then loop back to Hollister. A more adventurous ride that will involve several miles of dirt roads will head out to the Panoche Road area. From there, the riders will return to Hollister by way of Cienega Road and private roads on nearby cattle ranches.

The course will involve traveling through many areas where cell phone service is either spotty or non-existent, making radio a very important part of the event. We will need a ham radio operator in each SAG wagon and support vehicle to so that everyone can keep in constant communication with event dispatch and other support persons. We’ll also need some operators to staff some of the more distant rest stops.

The ride will be held on Saturday, October 20. To volunteer or if you have any questions, contact Ron Ross KD6ZXG by e-mailing dcv @ sbcares.org
