The BAARC worked communications for the Tenth Anniversary of the ?Run For The Lakes Marathon? held on Saturday, April 29, 2017. The BAARC has provided communications for all ten years of the Marathon.
Saturday?s activities began at 8:01 AM from the Nisswa Community Center. We had ten radio operators working different locations. Doug W?DWB, Mitch AD?HJ, Roger W?WUG, Charles W5CCL, Carlos N?OHX and Mark KE?LFQ all worked different water stops. Dave K?ISZ worked a relay exchange area. Al W?RC worked the start line and was our course rover. Terry KI?FW and Shirley K?DCW worked net control from the Crow Wing County Sheriff?s trailer. Thank You to the sheriff for letting us use their trailer.
We had ~365 runners with no serious injuries and with great running weather.
The RFTL Marathon organizers thank the BAARC radio operators for the excellent job we did again this year.
