February 2020 Update for Georgia Motorcycle Volunteers

My son & I enjoyed the Atlanta Motorcycle Show a few weekends ago.  I particularly enjoyed the British vintage motorcycles and a very special classic Ducati.  We had some good conversations with some of the exhibitors and were able to hand out a bunch of motorcycle volunteer contact cards.

A couple of weekends ago I discovered a group of about twenty all female riders who gather at my favourite local breakfast spot once a month.  They were gracious enough to listen to my pitch and accepted a few contact cards from me.  If you were in that number, Welcome! :-D

For the Georgia crew there are some volunteer opportunities coming up that could be combined with a weekend trip:

Florida

Alabama

Kentucky

Georgia


The Huntsville/Rocket City event in June could be a fun weekend.  It's only one day of volunteering and it would be cool to visit the U.S. Space & Rocket Center for a total nerd-fest :-D

And as you can see, the dates for the Bike MS Atlanta Peach Ride in LaGrange has been posted for 2020.  Woot!  I've had a blast at this event over the past four years and I am looking forward to making it five years in a row.

The Atlanta Track Club is looking for Amateur Radio Operators to support the Olympics Team Trial on Saturday February 29th and the Publix Atlanta Marathon on March 1st.

Motorcycling Amateur Radio Club

Following my first outing as "Motorcycle Mobile" at the 2019 Bike MS Atlanta Peach Ride I've been looking around for other opportunities to use my motorcycle and amateur radio license AT THE SAME TIME!

I found the Motorcycling Amateur Radio Club (M.A.R.C.) and have applied for membership.

M.A.R.C. is organized into chapters throughout the USA and is focused on supporting charity events with Motorcycle Marshals and HAM Radio Operators.

I'll provide more updates as I connect with these folks.
