Rally Report – July, 2017

14 teams Revisited Rabbit Hash in June. Everyone finished; nobody seemed to get lost – at least not hopelessly; and FOUR – count ‘em – Four teams completed the BEAUTIFUL course with zero points. Winners were Gordon & Teresa Benson, Dick & Paul Krehbiel, Scott, Reghan & Amy Bitzer and Brittany Moore & Hannah Poston. Following closely behind with a 1/2 point deduction (“The” is part of the sign) were Gary & Brigitte Spicer. A huge thank you to Rally Master Lee Grimes, and to Jerry Cabe & Colleen Cabe for tag teaming on the Safety Steward duties. Their help allowed me to navigate for Tim Silver – a very exciting ride in his MGB.

Our next rally date is July 22. There was no Rally Master lined up for this one and I was concerned about pulling it off in time. Enter my (retired) neighbor and friend of 33 years who did not know of my involvement in the SCCA rally program. He crewed for us a couple times in my previous SCCA (racing) life (before kids) so wondered if I was still involved and if we ever did rallies. Serendipity. We had a meeting tonight to go over some basics and he plans to jump right in and get us set up for the next rally. Thanks, Jim! Registration will be open as soon as I give him some time to determine where to start and end.

There will be an email blast to former participants and a Facebook post to let you know when registration will be open. Please sign up on line whether you want to pay in advance or the day of the event so we’ll have a ballpark idea of how many to expect. Bring some friends, member or not, who haven’t run with us before and save $5 on your registration fee (one discount per new car/driver/navigator unit).
