Great turnout for ARES Race Support

Nearly a dozen Rusk County, Gregg County and Smith County hams volunteered to support the Resurrection Run 5K/10K this past Saturday. The event was the club's fifth year to support the race which is hosted by the local Ebenezer Baptist Church as a fund raiser for local charities. This year's benefactors included the Henderson Interchurch Ministry (food bank), the Ruck County Legacy House (foster care support) and the Rusk-Panola Child Advocacy Center.

The day began a little chilly (52 F) with a heavy dew settling on everything. But soon the sun came out it turned out to be perfect weather. N5NDC served as net control again with KC5ERV assisting at the HQ station. Everyone else deployed along the race route which took runners across most of the western half of Henderson through both Lake Forest Park and Fair Park. 

This year's race appeared to go off without a hitch with no injuries reported, no emergencies and no lost runners! Thanks again to all who participated!
