The September Friday Nighter was an interesting affair with no traps. It was sort of a Monte Carlo Style Rally with no alpines. It was straight forward and easy and well received by most of the competitors. Scores were all over the place, in spite of the hints the rallymaster gave on the official time seconds. Thanks to the folks who worked the rally; without them these events could not happen.
ORCA presented “The Rally with No Name”. The Rallymaster was Steve Roberts. Steve assembled a very entertaining rally that included a protection trap and an “OR” trap that most of the field bought. Four cars got it right. The roads were fun, the flow of the course was good and the control work was impeccable. As a bonus, the pizza at Brava Pizza was excellent! It is a shame that more people did not join us to enjoy the fun.
Congratulations to Novice Class winners Jordan Keffer and Derek Ihler with a score of 125; SOP Class winners David Johnson and Ryan Welsh with a score of 49; Masters Class winners Timothy Hall and Curt Thompson with a score of 19, and Unlimited Class and overall winners Steve Pfau and Mike Daily with a score of 2.
Thank you to Steve Roberts and Debbie Sjodin for their work on the course and running pace; Thank you to the crews who worked: Checkpoint 1 and Scoring, Pat Biggar and Hal Dittman; Route Control 1, Eric Hobbs and Ben Thompson; Checkpoint 2, Dave and Kathy Sacry; Checkpoint 3, Gary Coon and Jack Heppes; and Start/Sweep, Don Gibson and Ardis Dull. Without the workers, these rallies wouldn’t be fun at all.
