Announcing the Rally Rallye
1: a mass meeting intended to arouse group enthusiasm like CFO
2: also ral·lye [French rallye, from English 1rally] : a motorcycle competition using public roads and ordinary traffic rules with the object of gathering the most points in a specified amount of time over a route unknown to the participants until the start of the event
So it's a Rallye at a Rally hence the name The Rally Rallye.
A rally format is perfect for exploring the area all around La Crosse. The region is so saturated with great roads it’s hardly necessary to put together a planned route. I’ve run several rallies in this area and always found it to be great fun to just let the GPS take me from point to point taking what ever roads it throws at me. In southern Wisconsin nearly all the roads are paved so setting the GPS to “shortest distance” means you’re guaranteed to find cool little roads all over the place.
My intent is to make this as fun as possible, while introducing you to the twisted sport of rallying in a format that will be good for the rally virgins. That doesn’t mean I will be easy on you! To the contrary I intend to be very strict at the scoring table very much in the Team Strange tradition. You learn from your mistakes not from me going easy on you.
The Rallye will be on Friday and will be 8 hours long.
I will need a minimum of 10 riders entered or I will need to cancel the Rallye, don't make me do this again.
Entry fee will be $10 any moneys left over will be spent on food and drinks, not necessarily in that order.
Deadline for entries will be 6/1/2011
The field of play will be somewhat condensed. All boni will be within or very close to these boundaries. East of the Mississippi River, South and West of I-90 and North of US-18 and US-151. Very close equals less than 10 miles. A good Wisconsin map is all one should need.
