Bar J Bustle Competitive Trail Ride - Aug. 30 – Sept 02

Ham ops needed for horse event, Labour Day weekend

I’m looking for ham operators to provide safety communications for an equestrian event near Calgary Alberta, Labour Day weekend Aug. 30 – Sep2.

The course is a 25-mile cross-country loop. Ham operators provide safety communications and tracking along the route. I need 3 to 8 operators, one at the base, the others spread along the course. Four-by-four vehicles are an asset, as are ATVs and UTVs, but I can find locations for hams with cars. Several positions are 2-5 km hike-in with handheld radios.

The ride is called the Bar J Bustle Competitive Trail Ride. It takes place Aug. 30 – Sept 02 (Friday to Monday), with the actual ride on Saturday and Sunday. Base is 55 km north west of Calgary, south west of Water Valley.

The event provides free camping at the base location from Friday afternoon to Monday morning. Accommodations is an open field, you supply tent, trailer, whatever you want or have. Portapotties are supplied.

Meals for volunteers are supplied, from Friday night until Sunday lunch, and they will have some potable water, but best to bring your own beverages of choice.

There is a ride briefing for riders on Friday night. Very useful for the hams, but not mandatory. The actual ride takes place on Saturday and Sunday. You can stay Sunday night, and head home Monday.

To volunteer with NARC at this event please contact Fred by email.
