RIDE FOR JUSTICE
Preparations and Implementations of the Task Force Given LB team meeting
PERMITS. everybody was informed that the letter to the Chancellor (permit for the activities and use of Baker) has been approved. Dr. Helen Dayo is writing a letter for Boy Scouts of the Philippines to allow the Ride to go thru BSP
BIKERS. Gatty Leceta has invited bikers from Quezon and Laguna; he expects 200 bikers to participate. He will brief everyone during the early morning assembly at Baker Hall.
REGISTRATION. Gatty made the waiver and registration forms, printed them, and gave some to Green Planet (bike shop along the highway), which is one of the registration venues along with Bene cafe at Searca dorm in the campus and UPLB Gender Office. For every P150, P50 will be spent for the bikers' food and P100 will go to the victims of violence.
ROUTE. Ari and Gatty went around the campus the other day to trace the route. They made some changes in the upper campus. SO, race starts at the Baker Hall--off to APEC (passing by IRRI and by the site where Given's body was found. The team suggests that bikers stop over for a short prayer or light a candle; Upsilon provided the candles last time there's a gig for Given so maybe we can ask them again?)--back to the campus passing by CEAT--Silangan Road--Kanluran--professional bikers will go up to Jamboree, while the rest may turn left to the Library and back to Baker Hall.
WATER. Gatty has invited Aqua Altria and will invite another sponsor for the water stations.
SECURITY. Gatty has asked permission from the University Police Force to lead the ride with a patrol car. He also invited Kabalikat: ['Kabalikat Civicom or simply known as KABALIKAT is presently the largest group of responsible and active radio communicators engaged in public assistance particularly during disasters and natural calamities or whenever there is need to ensure public comfort and convenience']
MARSHALS. Aside from Kabalikat, the UPLB Pahinungod will be invited (by Kei Tan) to man the 9 stations of the route.
SAFETY. Gatty has requested for IRRI ambulance to be in the event. Ms Helen has also invited volunteers from the University Health Service to be at Baker Hall in case of emergency
