KONA COLVILLE CONNECTION:
Event is being held on Saturday, 22 February, 2014
Each year, the Hamilton AREC Section provides safety communications for
the Kona Colville
Connection. This is a Mountain Bike Race that circles the top of
the Coromandel from Colville to Colville – 72 Km’s, of which 8 Km’s is
on a walking track from Stony Bay to Fletcher Bay.
Owing to the terrain, we use H.F. Communications between Base and
Stony, Fletcher and Fantail Bays. We provide two operators on the hill
and communications for them is through the Hamilton STSP.
Safety and isolation dictates that a team consists of two people; a
primary operator and either a secondary operator or friend/family
member. Distance and road conditions require that operators are on site
the previous night, so this involves camping out.
If you are able to
assist with the 2014 event, please contact the Section Leader.
