THANK YOU TARA VOLUNTEERS!

Start-Finish
2700+ Riders!


from Paul, WA6EWV
To all

AMBBR
Radio Operators:

Another LONG & TOUGH one!
Reports of riders waiting for a SAG and then "Disappearing"
caused multiple communications (translate that into "Heavy Radio Traffic") and proved difficult to track.

These scenarios called on all of us for not only our usual efficient traffic handling,
but tested our abilities to endure this stress for a number of hours!

Consequently, your excellent performance
helped insure the safe and enjoyable experience the riders have come to expect
from the AMBBR event without portraying the severity of the issues. .
Additionally your understanding at remaining "On Station" until:
* ALL riders were accounted for
* The final sweep came through
and
* The site resources were picked up
proved your volunteer dedication and
"Amateur Radio Spirit"
for community service are second to none.


Unfortunately my stupid camera's memory card was not locked in place.

OK, maybe that's the stupid camera operator didn't check the memory card.
So, no pictures at this time.
If you took any, please pass them along.
I'll fill in with some past year photos


Below
"Thanks by NAME"
to all with a special "WELL DONE" to another TARA Ham Cram NEW licensee, Emerson, KM6BNW!

We also had two NEW "Net Control" operators this year who handled the unusual situations and survived their "Trial by Fire" with outstanding control!
Congratulations Art, AB7FB and Cathy, N7HVN
