The Pony Express Trail Ride
in conjunction with the POW-WOW.
Back in the
days of the real "Pony Express" they did not have
radio communications to help them out if a horse
came up lame or the Indians were watching them, they
had no way to get assistance if they needed it. Now
we help them out by getting a trailer to them if
they need to transport a horse or if some rider
comes up ill, and we can let the people at the end
of the course know where they are on the course.
The Pahrump Fall Festival Parade
The Pahrump Fall Festival has
the usual parade that many towns have for there end
of summer and of course a good share of them have
the assistance of Amateur Radio Operators to help
set-up and keep track of the parade participants, in
case of any problems.
Yes there is always the
possibility that since the parade is on the main
highway in town that the emergency equipment may
have to go through the parade to get where they need
to get to, and we may have to clear a way for them
to get there.
