Halloween Rally promises to be much different from the typical "Gimmick"
style rallies. I call this year's rally a "Compass-Odometer" style
rally. Participants will be given a choice as to the degree of difficulty
in which to follow the route. The first and more difficult set of
instructions will consist of turns indicated by a compass heading
at a specified distance. ( I.E., drive 3.7 miles turn N) Choosing
these set of instructions will be rewarded with a substantial increase
in point total. The simpler route instructions will consist of the
standard right and left turns, street names, etc. Whichever set
of instructions you choose I guarantee a very pleasant drive. The
route is predominately on very scenic rural roads, with a couple
of fun MG roads (as in suggested speeds in curves) as well. If you
would like to experience a new style of rally, you can purchase
a decent car compass at Pep Boys for under fifteen dollars. Of course,
a functioning odometer is a must.
The rally begins
at the RED GATE WOODS Forest Preserve, on IL 171, approximately
1.5 miles east of route 83. Registration at 11 AM, drivers meeting
at 11:30 AM, and first car off at 12 noon.
Rally fee is
$7.00 per car.
I hope to see
you November 7th!
