Wow, what a great night for a rally. No rain; just enough fog here and there to make the competitors consider it, temps not too cold. The odo check went from the Park & Ride to the bottom of Duthie Hill Road. From there, we meandered out to a checkpoint near the old Carnation Farm, then North on 203 and up the Kelly Rd and into Duvall. From Duvall we went up to the old Honor Farm in Tualco, where the 2nd checkpoint awaited us by Crescent Lake, and then up my favorite High Bridge Road to Broadway, and checkpoint 3 by the all too familiar fertilizer and bark storage area. A very fun run, parts of which has been used on the last 4 rallies. (Sorry about the repetition, folks. We rallymasters don’t talk to each other about where we are planning to go.) Great fun and the rally was punctuated by good scores. Congratulations to the winners.
Thanks to the workers from Rainier Auto Sports Club, Mark Nolte, Charles Aggenbach, Richard and Dolores Ranhofer, Marcus Hansen, Marvin Crippen, and last but not least, Eric Horst who did registration, started cars along with Marvin, and helped out at the finish.
Another year is in the books. We are hoping for another great season in 2018. Hope to see you then!
