17. Other comments:
The purpose of the requested communications was to 
facilitate logistical and safety communications for the 
2001 running of the Anchorage Gold Nugget Women's 
Triathlon. The requirements were more stringent this 
year, since the race is, for the first time, an official 
qualifying race for the National Triathlon Association. 
This was provided by having at first one then two extra 
hams running messages in the headquarters area. The only 
medical event of any consequence was a young lady who ran 
out of steam and was speedily picked up by race personnel.

Special thanks to Susan Woods NL7NN, for acting as net 
control and to Mike Borer WL7CKB for help in volunteer 
acquisition
