    Hi everyone,

    This is the information for the last Rally of the year. I did this Rally last year and it was fun. If you have a done one of the monthly rallys then this one will be different to you. This Rally is about slow speeds, time and show you the mileage for each Distance. They call it a tulip rally and give you a picture of the turn instead of a term. Which means you will not get lost and pictures are easy to follow. Ok maybe one or two people may get lost but I did not last year. The roads will be a bit rough and I recommend you do not take your British car. The car I took last year didn't get hurt but there are gravel roads. There is a chance i may drive a mini but not likely. This is almost a all day rally so bring some snacks. Last year it went from about noon to 8pm. There are some pit stops along the route but you are warned. This is a great rally to do and I have a lot of fun on it. Please check out the link below to find out more info about the rally. I hope to see you there, and call or email if you have any questions.

    My night vision is not what it was at your tender young age. Ten years ago or so one of my old co-driver's & I decided to come out of retirement & run some rallies. We had a lot of fun, but I realized that I could no longer run the speeds required to be competitive in the dark. Bought the lights in question & they helped, but not enough. Alas I have turned the corner to oldfartdom.

    Both you & I have no desire for me to puke in your car. I can not co-drive, motion sickness will strike me down.

    But I am bad with directions and timing :(

    The WRX does love it some gravel, I do wish it had another inch or two of ground clearance I had a couple scraping issues this weekend. Next time I go exploring unknown roads I think I will take my dad's Jeep :)

    A Tulip Rally is not hard to stay on course. As far as timing goes, don't worry about it. Just drive the course & enjoy yourself & your Skooby.

    sorry to say but this is canceled.

    Unfortunately, we are having to cancel next weekend’s Ohio Forest Rally. I have an unplanned trip out of town and with the rather poor turnout of workers, the club can’t properly /safely staff the event without me checking control locations and working some controls.

    I regret any inconvenience that this may have caused and hope that you will pass on the word to anyone else that you know who might be planning to come down.

    We’ll moth-ball the route book and try to run it at some other date next year.

    Thanks to those of you who pre-registered to work or run. I / we really appreciate your support.
