OKC Memorial Marathon 2019 Volunteer Registration

2019 Volunteer Registration

Volunteer registration for the 2019 OKC Memorial Marathon is now open. The date for the Marathon is April 28, 2019.

We will need about 100 Amateur Radio operators again this year, Radio volunteers normally to be on location of their assignment by 6:00 AM on the 28th.
The registration code for this year is “PSC19”. If you use the URL above, it will automatically put the code in the box for it. By making sure this code is in the box you will automatically be placed in the Public Service Communications team.

As much as possible I will try to assign you to the same place you were last year, unless you specifically wish to be re-assigned and I’ll try to accommodate everyone’s wishes, if I can.

For those of you who are first time volunteers, I will assign you with a “seasoned” volunteer who can help you with your assignment duties. We will have a “Pre-Brief” about 2 weeks before the event – most likely on April 16th. More details will follow. IF YOU HAVE ANY PROBLEMS, EMAIL ME.

Choose a Username for yourself (can be your call sign if you want). Also, create a password you can remember, as you may need to log back in to correct something. Be sure to check the “I agree” box by the lower blue arrow. Then click the Register button. It will take you to the 2nd page wher3e you will fill out the rest of the required personal info. It will be kept private. I will be able to see it, so I can get your info into my scheduling program. Please be complete.
