RoadRally Report

Today ended the 2020 rally season. It was a simply gorgeous day for a drive thru Southern Ohio/Northern Kentucky. We were able to even have a bit more socializing than we have had at other events this year, with masks and distancing of course. 13 cars started and 12 finished. We lost one team due to motion sickness, but all had a good time. We counted yard signs as votes for the presidential election, and it looks like Trump squeaked by Biden in our small part of the country. No opinion rendered here and hardly scientific, but it was just for fun. Overall winner was a newcomer to our group and was just going to drive the route sans navigator, or so I thought. Since I did that myself, I was OK with that. However, he managed to even answer most of the questions correctly and finished 1 point ahead of 2nd with just 3 ½ points. Full results will be posted to the website in the near future.
I want to take this time to thank all the Rally Masters who gave their time to set up routes this year, which allowed us to have a shortened and somewhat altered, but very enjoyable season. In order of appearance – Lee Grimes, Jim Knepper, Jim Walls, and today’s co Masters EB Lunken and David Vornholt. It takes considerable time to lay out a rally and run it multiple times. Personally, I enjoy doing just that maybe even more than being a competitor. If you want to join the ranks as a Rally Master, the door is open to you. Just let us know and we will give you any help you need. I am sure there are roads you know just waiting for us.

Well, it’s 2020 – bringing us everchanging situations. Our April rally, rescheduled to October 3, then to October 10, is now going to be on October 31. You should be home in plenty of time for Trick or Treat or a party. We’ll be starting and ending in New Richmond, Ohio. The route is a bit over 90 miles and goes thru southern Ohio, over the river, around northern Kentucky, ON the river, and back into Ohio.

This will be the last rally of the year. Hopefully next year we will be able to maintain our normal schedule without juggling dates. Come join us for this fall drive. It will be a good one.

RoadRally Report

We had a glorious day to take a “Drive in the Appalachian Foothills” last Saturday. Ten teams participated, including 2 first timers and 3 other novice teams. Everyone finished. Everyone had fun. Everyone did very well. No teams missed more than 3 questions. We visited 4 covered bridges and teams found up to ten “Barn Quilts” along the twisty hilly country roads. Complete results can be found on the website at cincyscca.com. Rally Master, Jim Wiles, found some great roads and threw in some quirky twists in the questions that had everyone running all over the streets of Russellville at the same time looking for answers. What a trickster!
Come join us for the next road rally, currently planned to be on Saturday, October 10, starting and ending in New Richmond, Ohio. Registration for the event will be open soon, and meanwhile you can sign up on MotorSportReg to make sure you get an email when registration is open. If you have already run with us, you are already on the email list!

RoadRally Report

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. Registration at cincyscca.motorsportreg.com will open about 3 weeks before the event. You can also register now to receive an email notice when it is open.

RoadRally Report

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.
