We’re heading for the Summer Solstice on Monday, June 20. This celestial event has been used as an excuse to put on any number of rallies in the past. This year, we’ll just have the July Friday Nighter, but it will be worthy of it’s predecessors because the rallymaster is Jack Heppes. Jack wrote 9 Sno-Git Monte Carlo Rallies, and they were all great drivers events and a load of fun. Jack knows all of the fun roads in Snohomish County, and will include as many as he can fit in for the Friday Nighter. This is going to be good!
We had a nice weekend, starting with the checkout of the June Friday Nighter, while many of our crew headed for Kennewick for the start of No Alibi. The checkout went well, and the course is really fun. Following the lead of other rallymasters this year, we kept the rally trap free, so it is an easy run with time keeping being the major task at hand. Drivers will have a good time. Navigators have been spared the task of counting telephone poles.
Registration for this novice oriented event opens at 6:45 PM at the Eastgate Park & Ride Parking lot in Bellevue (14200 SE Eastgate Way). The drivers meeting is at 7:10 and first car out will be 7:31. The entry fee is $20. The “bring a new team and your entry is free” special continues, so invite some friends and enjoy free entry. The rally runs North, and ends at Brava Pizza and Pasta, 120 Glen Ave in Snohomish.
Come on out and join us, and bring your friends!
The May Friday Nighter was an interesting rally presented by Don Gibson of ORCA. After a 45 minute odo check to Monroe, we took Ben Howard Road out to Sultan, went a little farther east, then used Old Pipeline Road to get back to civilization. Fun roads and a fun event. Special thanks to ORCA members Pat Biggar, Rick Ross, Dave and Kathy Sacry, Jack Heppes, Gary Coon, Ben Thompson Eric Hobbs, and Steve Roberts for working the event.
