Boise Holiday Parade This Saturday!

Looking for as many helping hands as possible for the Boise Holiday Parade on Saturday, 11/28/09 (two days after Thanksgiving).

The event is in downtown Boise and is telecasted by KTVB Newschannel 7.

Last year we have quite a few volunteers that will be out of the area this year.

Positions involve direct traffic control and blocking the right of way. Traffic safety vests, cones and amber warning lights are very helpful. Comms will be on VHF 2m Simplex – a great event for the newly licensed Amateur.

Please if at all possible leave your pets at home due to the extreme traffic volume.

This is a fairly family-friendly parade – from your assigned intersection, your family can walk in and watch the parade.

At this point if you are available, please let me know ASAP. We’re trying to get a ballpark headcount to work with for the final parade planning meeting on Monday, 11/23.

Any and all help is appreciated!

Very 73,
