SHOULD YOU AT YOUR LOCATION NEED TO HAVE URGENT CARE AND SUPPORT FOR
EXTRICATION PLEASE CALL: "CENTRAL DISPATCH THIS IS MARQUETTE MOUNTAIN
PATROLLER (LAST NAME) ON 52COM". WAIT FOR THEM TO RESPOND. IN PLAIN ENGLISH
SHARE YOUR DETAILS AND LOCATION OF THE NEEDED SUPPORT. THIS IS URGENT CARE
THERE IS NO RACER PICKUP ON THE NOQUE TRAIL. GETTING THEM TO THE NEAREST AID
STATION AND ALLOWING THE HAM OPERATORS TO HELP ARRANGE PICKUP IS OUR ONLY
SOLUTION. AID STATIONS COULD HAVE REPLACEMENT SKI POLES. THERE ARE NO
REPLACEMENT SKIS, WHICH IS OFTEN ASKED.
THERE IS A NEW YELLOW BACKGROUND NEW NOQUE TRAIL MARKING KILOMETER NUMBERING
SIGNAGE SYSTEM. ONLY RELY ON THE YELLOW SIGNAGE. ALL OTHER SIGNAGE WITH
DISTANCE NUMBERS SHOULD BE COVERED FOR THE RACE TO STOP PAST CONFUSION.
East of 510 there are two separate trails for the long and short races. The
long race should have an "A" on the numbers in that space. The short race will
have a "B" on the numbers to show and separate the two courses. Eventually the
two trails merge back together and the A and the B will no longer be seen.
Gear can be picked up at the Patrol Room at your convenience. O2 and AED's and
800 Radios can be picked up at Frei Chevrolet on Friday before 430pm.
