BPMS 150 Needs More People
Written by KF5LCA   

There seems to be some confusion on how and where you should register to participate in the BP MS150 event.  It may be a little confusing, but this year the MS Society is hoping to go paperless and use digital registrations to help eliminate the need for the various forms we have had to fill out in
the past.  To help simplify the registration process please do the following:

1.     If you are registering to participate as a volunteer where your primary duties are RADIO COMMUNICATIONS only, you should go to the
<http://www.bpms150hams.org> www.bpms150hams.org website and follow the instructions shown for your registration.  However ----

2.     If you are registering to participate as a volunteer where yourprimary duties are CERT or BREAKPOINT related only, you should go to the
<http://main.nationalmssociety.org/goto/2014BP-CERTs>
http://main.nationalmssociety.org/goto/2014BP-CERTs website, go to the bottom of the page and click on the "JOIN TEAM" and follow the instructions shown for your registration.

3.     As a HAM operator, if your volunteer assignment is CERT or BREAKPOINT oriented this may seem a little awkward, but this year it is important to register at the website where your PRIMARY responsibilities will be coordinated and maintained.



4.     If you have registered at the wrong website, do not worry about it, just send me a message to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it and let me know the situation. I will contact the appropriate group and have your name and registration information moved.



Just as a reminder, the final training event for Break Point Volunteers and for Amateur Radio SAG Stop Communications will be on Wednesday, March 19, 2014.  This meeting will take place at:

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints

1101 Bering Drive (in the Galleria area just west of
Chimney Rock between Woodway and San Felipe)

Houston, TX  77057

Meeting Schedule:

6:00 - 6:30 For Registration and dinner

6:30 - 7:20 Meetings for SAG Stop Communications and Break Point Control

7:20 - 7:30 Break

7:30 - 8:00 Joint Meeting with speaker presentation

Thank you again for volunteering to assist with the BP MS150.  We still need volunteers so if your schedule permits, and you have not already volunteered, please join us in this fight to help defeat MS.

Please contact me if you have any questions about the upcoming BP MS150.
