2016 Spring Chicken Run
May 15, 2016
The first rally of the season started on a chilly, windy day but that could not deter the MG enthusiasts itching to get out and rally! There were a total of 26 cars, 23 of which were MG’s.
Following the drivers meeting, engines revved and everyone started heading out of the parking lot of the Deer Park Town Center which turned out to be the hardest part of the route for many! We traveled some great curvy and scenic roads throughout Deer Park, Barrington and Lake Zurich while trying to get the answers to quiz questions to complete a Word Jumble. The end point was the home of our rally masters, George and Jana Phariss, in Ivanhoe where we received the final 2 questions; how many railroad track did we cross and how many golf courses did we pass on the right side…….very tricky!
George and Jana put out an amazing spread for lunch; which included BBQ Pork and chicken breasts that their son Kirk prepared in his smoker and baked beans, salads, cheeses and desserts prepared by Jana. Everyone enjoyed the company of others outside while indulging in food and beverage.
Before breaking up, the scores were tallied up and the winners of the rally presented their awards. 1st place went to Jim and Lois Evans with a score of 95, coming in 2nd with a score of 94 were Tim and Jamie Shafer and finishing it off in 3rd were Ric and Nancy Maitzen with a score of 92.
A great time was had by all. Thanks to George and Jana for a great rally!
