Thanks once again to Roger W1OJ for the use of the 448.625 repeater on Saturday.

NB: Saturday volunteers should meet in front of the Wachusett Mountain ski lodge at 07:30. Be prepared for a 10 hour day. We'll be fed lunch and the water van will make it around as often as it can but you should have your own water and snacks if you want them.

Sunday volunteers should meet at the corner of Grove St. and Main St. in Fitchburg at 07:45. Be prepared for a 10 hour day. You will get lunch and water.

For more race information, see the Longsjo Classic site.
