|Well it is over, and I am recovering, I hope. I am of course refer to Tour de Peninsula 2009 bike ride. I want to thank each and every one of you for your outstanding service for TDP 2009.
I have not been in contact with the event organizers yet but I had not heard of any issues. All in all, this was a great event and all deserve a big thanks. We had about 1200 participants.
We did have some medical calls but no transports to hospital that I know of. We had a banged up arm that was treated & the rider continued I believe. We had road rashes & a possible broken finger.
We had experienced & new Hams with us. We utilized 3 Ham radio nets and I would like to thank the repeater owners for the use of their equipment. We had good to great coverage on the WA6TOW, K6MPN & KC6ULT repeaters. We use the backup system N6ZX repeater a little.
And now, here is the TDP communications team that deserves all the thanks:
