MS 150 Wild West Ride 2010 July 24th and 25th 2010

For us Amateur Radio operators, the BP 150 serves two purposes. First and foremost it is a fun time to get together and give back to the community. We always have a lot of fun with this event each year. Second, and also equally important, it is practice for an actual emergency situation where Amateur Radio operators would be called upon to provide emergency communications. For more information, visit the Event’s Website

Enjoy the weekend and put your hobby to a good use for a wonderful cause. Helping with the BP 150 Bike Ride is where the true spirit of amateur radio is. Let’s keep active with public service events and keep amateur radio alive and useful!

Update: Thank you all for volunteering to assist with communications for this event. Hope to see you all at breakfast at Denny’s at I-40 and Ross, Saturday morning at 4:00 am. Otherwise, we will see you at the Amarillo College East Campus at 6:00 am. If you are driving a SAG vehicle, please remember to bring a cooler if you have one, and pick up some water, ice, fruit, etc. at the start line, for the riders. I want to thank everyone for helping with the MS BP 150.
