Nature's Harmony Eco Race 2010
25k and 50k Race
NBARC provided radio communications at three checkpoints and the Start/Finish. Amateurs present were Chris VA3CMX, Doug VA3DLJ, Gerry VA3YO and Henry KD8LWV. With spotty access into the Mattawa 147.15+ repeater, simplex on 146.52 was used for the race.
Organizers were attempting their first race (although they had been involved with the 2010 Lost in the Rocks and Trees).

I am contacting you on behalf of the 1st North Bay Scout Troop, a group of which I am a member. They have expressed an interest in participating in the Jamboree on the Air (JOTA) scouting event. It is basically a 48hr field day for the youth to make contacts throughout the world. There is no scoring involved though contacts are logged and submitted to the National level. Being a Ham without an HF station, I was hoping that the North Bay Amateurs might be able to help us out.
