Jim, open the gate & let the horses be free range for a day. Your neighbors will have a hoot. Speaking of horses I see you are up early milking them.

TSD rallies are about dead on this side of the pond. Most folks nowadays don't have a clue what one is. I find that quite sad.

Hummm, you mean like "free range chickens". Not sure how well that would go over. Yep, feeding time at the zoo starts early.

It is sad. TSD's were great fun.

I got some more details. I was told they should be going up on the website every soon.

Activities should be about the same as last year. Pictures, coffee, & donuts at the West End Overlook 8am on Saturday July 23rd. Police escorted parade around 10am to the car show. A hot lunch will be provided there. Car show and races will be going on till 4.

Cost will be around $15 a car thanks to MINI of Pittsburgh. Most of that $$ goes to PVGP charities.

In past years there as been ~ 70 MINIs.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Yeah, my friend and I have been doing the BRMSCC rallies for almost a year now. We probably make it to about half of them a year. We take turns driving and have gone in three or four different cars by now. My friend's new 2011 GTI will be debuting this weekend, and then I'll be up for two straight in my new 2011 MCS, the half-national rally on the 19th and the PVGP Kick-off in July.

I'm aware of CORC. Yep they are still rare. Long gone are the days of the ORC & MONY series. Large fields & all nighters are a fond memory.

Back on topic.... PVGP
