On July 11 we move north to run “Middletown Madness”, with Jim Knepper as your Rally Master. We will start at Bob Evans and end at Applebee’s off Rt 122 at I75. We will not be meeting as a group at Bob Evans for breakfast, but you may come early to eat if you choose. We DO plan to meet inside Applebee’s at the end of the drive. We have checked it out and there is a section that will allow us to be socially distanced from any other patrons and from each other. You may stay and eat or drop your answers off and leave, depending on your comfort level. Onsite registration and check in will start at 9:30, with a safety meeting at 10:15. First car out will follow the meeting at about 10:30. Registration at CincySCCA.MotorsportReg.com will open soon. You can register now to receive an email notice when it is open.
It was a beautiful day Saturday for “Social Distancing: Kentucky Rally Style”.
14 teams came out to enjoy the weather, explore the roads of Boone County Kentucky and socialize at a distance. 12 teams competed by searching for clues and answering questions along the route, and 2 teams chose to just enjoy the scenery. The winners were Angie Taylor and Duncan Latta, running their 3rd rally with us. In second place were Mike and Stephanie Spatz, who are have become regulars. The full results are posted on the cincyscca.com website. The only downside was not being able to enjoy each other’s company while having a bite to eat and a drink or two, then debating the answers. Maybe next time.
The next rally is July 11. We move north to run “Middletown Madness”, with Jim Knepper as your Rally Master. We hope to start at Bob Evans and end at Applebee’s off Rt 122 at I75. Onsite registration and check in will start at 9:30, with a safety meeting at 10:15. First car out will follow the meeting at about 10:30.

“Social Distancing: Kentucky Rally Style” is planned for May 30. Registration for the event will be open within the next few days. Get out of the house and explore the beautiful hills of Kentucky. Compete with the other teams by answering questions and following challenging route instructions or choose the relaxing drive with explicit instructions and no questions.

Onsite registration and check in will start at 9:30, with a safety meeting at 10:15. First car out will follow the meeting at about 10:30.

The April 25 rally has been cancelled – another victim of COVID19. I hope everyone is healthy and not going stir crazy. Mark the rest of these tentative dates on your calendar: May 30, July 11, August 29, October 3 (possibly the 10th) & November 7. Whether or not the events can be held will be decided (or determined by government mandates) on a case by case basis throughout the year. Meanwhile, gas is cheap, and you can stay separated from the general public while going for a drive. If you go exploring and find some cool roads, pass along the street names or any other information you can, and we’ll incorporate them into a future rally. Or lay out a course yourself and be a future Rally Master. Just use caution/gloves/etc. when filling your gas tank.

So, what exactly is a Road Rally?
It’s a competition on public roads… sure. But it’s a chance to enjoy the awesome roads the Tri-State has to offer. A chance to mingle at breakfast before setting out and mingle again (and argue about the questions) at the after party. It’s a chance to make new friends. It’s a chance to find your story… to find something you didn’t know was out there, to maybe go off course and have an adventure that you can look back on and laugh about. Just want to drive the roads we find with no competitive component. We’ve got you covered too. Please join us.
Mark these tentative dates on your calendar: April 25, May 30, July 11, August 29, October 3 & November 7. Rally Masters can choose from these dates (or suggest a new date). New Rally Masters are encouraged to join in and bring new roads and ideas to our group. Ample help is available to assist with set-up, so don’t be intimidated.
