       Our function during the event was to support communication between the rest stops, EMS trucks, and the sag wagons, to pick up walkers that were not able to make the complete trip. The course was divided into three parts; a three mile, a six mile and a twelve mile course. The walk was held in Grosse Pointe on Sunday, May 6th from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm and about 1100 people participated. A good time was had by all and the turn out was good. John, W8CDU, was net control, with Dan, KC8MNY, as back up net control. Hank, K8TRS, was the event coordinator for the MECA group. John, WD8R was at the 3 mile spilt, Al, NW8M and Ray, Sr., KC8AQL, were at rest stop #1. Ed, N8RUJ was at the 6 mile spilt, Rick, N8RHT was stationed at rest stop #2.

Diane, WI8K, worked with Amy Medich the MS route manager and Ray, KB8ZAW worked with Elana Chrisman the MS team leader. Ed, K8MDV worked with Lance Williams on the supplies, and John, N8TKH worked with Lisa Chaunty the site coordinator. There were some that I missed too. Some hams worked hard like Ray, KB8ZAW, throughout the event hanging signs, fixing doors, as well as passing traffic back and forth - and some hams were just clowning around . . .
