Help Request – 11/7/09 Veteran’s Day Parade & Zeitgeist Half Marathon

We have both the Veterans Day Parade in downtown Boise and the Zeitgiest Half Marathon. Typically each even would take us to the limits of our available resources, however, with both events running at the same time, we need as many volunteers as possible. Contact Russ, N7SMA at n7sma@arrl.net or AJ, K6LOR at k6lor@arrl.net ASAP.

The Statesman, however, did have a column inch story on the event, estimating about 2,000 cyclists and the like.
