Cool gear, cool idea. way to go!

given the usual weather for HoCR, I might have put a solar event on a
different race day given free choice, but it never is unconstrained is
it? I have worked HoCR (in a safety boat as radio op), and the day
typically goes from chill brisk to warm to hot to wet to freezing, so
while the otterboxes will protect the net gear, take care to
waterproof the people, and use layers.

That said, sounds fun, and I hope for everyone including the MIT Flea
that the weather is good.

do warn folks coming to visit you about (the lack of) parking onRace
day. Alewife our Brantree/qouincy garages and redline to central, then
