|Amherst YMCA Cross Border Race
On Saturday June 21st beginning at 8:30am, the WestCumb Amateur Radio
Club participated in the annual YMCA Cross Border Race from Mt. Whatley
New Brunswick across the Tantramar Marsh into Amherst Nova
Scotia. Besides the annual 10K run there is now a half marathon during the
day. The club has been asked each year to provide communications at start /
finish lines and all water stations along the course. The club also has one
member (Mike VE1MY) who participates each year and walks behind the last
walker on the course to make sure no one is left behind and completes the
course along side that person.
The club also supplies information during the race to Tantramar Community
Radio 107.9FM via their amateur radio station VE1TCR to send out reports of
the race to the community.
There were a total of 63 messages passed during the races which began at
8:30 am and finished just after 11am.
Eight amateurs took part this year including (Left to Right)
Jim Langille VE1JBL, Peter Hebb VE1SM, Bob Tuttle VE1DR, Ron VE1BIC,
Mike VE1XDT, Kevin VE1KEV, Mike VE1MY and Bob VE1EDP.
