Lucas Night Rally Results
August 5, 2000

By Dave Tucker

Susie was the rallye master this year. She had put together a short rallye of 27.2 miles. There were 25 questions to answer along the way of about 20 were very easy to answer. This was for the novice ralliest. To make it harder for the more experencinced rallyist there were also 15 picture answers to find and answer, too. At the start, the dash was not used, but in it’s place, a skilled event was used to gain extra points. Those stopping closest to the starting line gained extra points the closer they got without going over.

We had gotten up to a very nice morning, but as the day went on the sky turned cloudy. We thought “RAIN”, OH NO! THIS HAPPENED LAST YEAR! Yes, the drops started to fall,but, the sky cleared and the rallye was a dry one for everyone. We had some very enthusiastic rallyist’s; Pat from the Miata club showed up with her conga line of Miata’s asking, “where are all the MG’s?” Of course the Mg’s came trickling in as usual a few at a time, and really made our day.

We thought we could get to Jedi’s and have a nice meal, but low and behold in came one car. UH OH, we’ll eat later. Maybe we didn’t make the rallye hard or long enough. I must say though that everyone was so gracious thanking us for all the hard work we put in the rallye, it really makes us feel good just knowing that they cared enough to let us know.
