6 teams and two drivers who just wanted to go for a drive on a beautiful Saturday afternoon competed in the Covered Bridge Tour. Everyone finished, as we welcomed newcomers Austin Henson and Brooke Steele. Congratulations to winners Gary & Brigitte Spicer and Lee Grimes & Loretta Workman. Both teams finished with scores of minus 2 and opted to share the accolades rather than play a hand of poker to break the tie. Well deserved congratulations to both teams. Gordon & Teresa Benson, regulars (and rally masters for September), finished second with minus ½. The actual “winners” were Lindsey & Susan Wiles, but since this was not their first time seeing the course, Rallymaster Jim Wiles disqualified them. Thanks to Jim Knepper for checking out the route for me. His retirement is certainly a boon to our region!
How did teams end up with negative points, you ask. Bonus point deductions for finding and photographing Barn Quilts. If you don’t know what they are….maybe you should join us. We provide competition, fun, AND education.
Our next rally date is September 16. Details will be coming soon. Look for a Facebook post and email with details. Save the date! Now that race season is (mostly) over, I’ll get the points caught up and posted as soon as I can for the series championship.
