Rocky Mountain Rally Volunteer Registration Now Available!

The Rallywest Rocky Mountain Rally volunteer registration webpage is now available! Here is the information you'll need to sign up as a radio operator for this event, which is running this year back in Invermere, BC!

These events rely on the generosity and time of our volunteers, we need your help to run a smooth event. Join us in the Columbia Valley for a beautiful weekend on:

Friday, June 2nd 

Saturday, June 3rd

Sunday, June 4th

Register to volunteer here:

Enter your basic information. On the bottom of the second page, you will be asked:
“Are you a Licensed Amateur Radio Operator?”

Please answer Yes to this and continue with the rest of the form. Some of the following questions will be specific to radio duties.

The main event link can be shown below. This should answer most of your questions regarding the event overall. 

If you are considering coming to volunteer as a radio operator, then please complete the volunteer registration form. 

When indicating the radio equipment that you plan to bring to the rally, try to be as generic as possible. It's much easier to deal with "50 watt mobile radio with APRS and a quarter wave magnetic mount antenna" than a bunch of make/model numbers with which we may not be familiar.

Camping will be available in Horsethief Hideout. We have a group of Radio Op’s already registered to camp.
Hotel accommodations will be based out of Radium. More information will be available soon.  

Finally, please double check that the email address and phone number(s) that you enter on the registration form are correct. Messages that bounce back are not getting to you! It's also important to have valid contact information, should a problem occur at, or just prior to, the event.

Please check here regularly so that you have the latest information! 

For questions, please contact both: 

Amanda Ann ( andKen Read (

We hope you'll be joining us for a great time at the Rocky Mountain Rally in Invermere, BC!
