Driving distance will be approximately 70 miles.
Participants will need to bring a clip board (route instructions are printed on 8-1/2 X 11 inch paper) pens or pencils, stop watch (or stop watch app for your phone) and some way of keeping track of the time of day and cumulative miles driven.
Those who are planning to participate are requested to email the Rally Master at email@example.com who will reply with a little more information regarding this fun event and the guidelines or general instructions governing it.
