Tour d’ Cotton Bicycle Race Fundraiser

Correction: Saturday October 6, 2012

Volunteers Needed!

Tour d’ Cotton is a fund raiser of Childress Theatre Company, a nonprofit corporation, dedicated to the restoration of the historic Palace Theater in Downtown Childress Texas. For more information about the Palace Theatre please click here.

 The Tour d’ Cotton consists of 3 simultaneous bicycle races with distances of 60 miles, 30 miles and 8 miles. Each race begins at 0800, 0815, and 0830 respectively. We are looking for volunteer ham radio communicators to assist with communications at the rest stops. APRS support of the event would also be greatly appreciated.

Enjoy the weekend and put your hobby to good use for a great cause. helping with this event is where the true spirit of Amateur Radio is. Let’s keep active with public service eevents and keep ham radio alive and useful!

For us Amateur Radio operators, the Tour d’ Cotton 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.

Traditionally, we meet at Dawson’s Family Restaurant at 1709 Ave F NW in Childress before the race at 0630 to finalize the communications plan over a plate of biscuits and gravy.

Masonic Lodge’s Motorcycle Run 10/29/11 (PDARC)

We will have stations at the Masonic Lodge, Kirkland, Paducah, Cee Vee, and junction of US 287 and FM 658.  All communications will again be on the N5OX repeater (mobile units required, HTs will not work).  One cycle will have an APRS tracker on it.

The first rider departs from Kirkland (10 mi east of Childress) for the 107 mile trip at 11:00 AM, and the last rider departs at 1 PM.  The event should be complete by about 3 PM.  There will be food at the Masonic Lodge where the ride ends.

This is also Delbert Days in Childress–Delbert Wilson’s collection of old cars will be on display in the area of the Masonic Lodge.
