Tour de Cure October 14th

I know this is short notice, but the Denton County Amateur Radio Association is asking for our assistance in supporting a bike rally in our general area.

The Tour de Cure, starting at Southfork Ranch, 3700 Hogge Road, Parker, TX 75002.

This ride benefits the American Diabetes Association. In years past, Tour de Cure has been held in Denton County, but the event organizers have moved it to Collin County this year. DCARA has another ride to support on the same day, so the success of this event hinges on participation from other area clubs and radio amateurs.

The ride starts at Southfork Ranch in Parker Texas and heads east towards Josephine. The link below is to the 62 mile route, which is inclusive of all of the shorter routes.

The reporting times have not been finalized yet, but the earliest positions can expect to start around 6:30AM and the latest positions should be finished by early afternoon.

We are primarily looking for stations to assist with rest stops and roving. The signup is below:

They will be using the PARK UHF repeater to support this event.

Thanks,
