The Rally date is Feb 22, 2020.

Feb 6, 2020:  I changed the Practice Instructions slightly.  I’ve reposted it and titled it …V2.  (It just adds one tulip).  You should print those and bring them along for your use.

Also there’s a new entry list; the car numbers have been changed slightly.  It will be the final one unless someone drops out.  BTW if you can’t make it, please tell me when/if you know.

Also the Tech form is posted.

You should print the General Instructions (and read them!) and the Tech form.

Feb 4, 2020:  There are new Practice 2020 instructions on the web.  These will illustrate all the types of instructions.  The route can be run in no more than 1 hour.  I suggest you try it before the rally.

Jan 28, 2020:  The rally is happily full :).  Now some more snow will finish off the preparations.  The route and the different kinds of instructions make it a challenging event.  I’m really happy with both.  The car numbers are still tentative.

Jan 21, 2020:  The Entry List is posted.  1 spot left; I will take 2 “reserves”.  I will contact immediately anyone whose entry is on the “reserve” list.  The Car Numbers are tentative.

Jan 17, 2020:  The General Instructions are posted.

Jan 14, 2020:  New Entry List posted.  24 cars already!  Mike Collier and I pre-checked the rally last Saturday.  Warm and wet conditions but the mileages were good and a few small corrections were made.

Two more items:  The GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS will be posted later this week.  Also the Compass App on your phone will NOT work in some areas!

Jan 7, 2020:  Entry List posted.

Jan 2, 2020:  Happy New Year.  I was out yesterday doing the mileage run.  What a perfect day!  1-2″ of new snow; roads not sanded yet.  That’s the condition we hope for on Feb 22.  One of our faithful competitors. Kathy M., suggested I do an entry list as time goes on.  So I will put up a revised list under ENTRY LIST every Tuesday evening.

Also know that when you send your entry and check in, I hold the checks until the actual rally weekend.

Dec 23, 2019:   Please see the new Entry form.  I have added a section to ask about your cars – Turbo or Supercharged and 4WD.  Please use this new form; I will email those already entered to ask the question.

Dec 13, 2019:  Entry blank and info is posted.

Dec 4, 2019: Some general thoughts:

  1. The roads in Vermont are great! I can’t guarantee snow, but they are twisty and great to drive.
  2. The towns sand their roads quite well – when they are not sanded, they are really slippery!
  3. Using the EZ Trak ‘yellow boxes’ in some areas allows me to have a control every 8 miles on the average – and in some narrow locations.
  4. Those who have done WC will know that my rallies always have some ‘thinking’ legs; I believe that a rally should be more than a ‘follow the leader’ tour through the woods. The first section in WC has a couple of these legs; but you won’t get lost – the route is fail-safe. The second and third sections are very straightforward – just brisk in places.   To help mitigate the ‘tricky’ legs costing too much time, there is a 50 point max penalty on the legs and competitors may drop their worst score in each section.
  5. NEW this year – a TOURING Class – explained as follows:

.Designed for competitors that fit the Novice Class                                                                           .No Class A navigator equipment                                                                                                         .Entrants compete on only Sections I and II –                                                                                     (4pm to 10 pm)                                                                                                                                        .Speeds are reduced and Route Instructions are                                                                                 easier; the route and  controls are the same .                                                                                  .Scoring is separate from the full WC event –                                                                                     (scores may not be finished that evening)                                                                                          .10 car maximum field – trophies for winners

    I looked through all of the information and could not for the life of me figure out where this event is being held other than somewhere in Vermont.
