Those of you who missed this rally missed a really fun event. This was Don Gibson’s best version of Butt Simple and it worked well. It actually had a few traps, which was surprising but also pretty straight-forward. The course wound back and forth from Lake Francis to Hobart, offering plenty of turns and stops and blinkers to play with. The legs were all about the same length (or seemed like it) and the checkpoints were is nice safe locations. Don’s instructions also included some times to instructions which may have been helpful for those who got zeros. It certainly made the route more interesting. Unfortunately, as you can see by the finishers (everyone who started finished), the turnout was the weakest of the season. Those who attended had a great time.
If you like rallying, I encourage you to beg, challenge or blackmail your friends to come join us and enjoy a nice drive in the country. If the attendance continues to drop off, it will likely affect the club’s ability and/or willingness to put on rallies.
Thanks to Don Gibson, who did a masterful job of rallymastering and to the crews who worked the rally and made this fun night possible.
