Dirty 30 Bicycle Race

Ionia County ARES / RACES group joined by many members of the RRA group and other area amateur radio operators, volunteered under the guide of the Ionia County Emergency Manager Sgt. Hoskins, Ionia County Emergency Coordinator Michael Carigon and Race Coordinator Raymond Passchier as communication assistance for the Dirty 30 Bicycle race on Saturday March 31, 2018 in Saranac Mi.
We had volunteers with their own communication equipment positioned throughout the course assisting in bicycle traffic and needs the bicyclist may have presented throughout their 14 or 30 mile race.
Thank you to all that helped out and volunteered! The whole event was a great success, everyone had a great time and we look forward to the next one!
