According to a member survey initiated by the board of directors, one of several events preferred is a road rallye.  So, the Fall Rallye was among the events planned to break the Covid-19 monopoly on our year.  Most certainly a road rallye with members inside their M-B’s enjoying the challenge of following directions could be done safely. 

After several days of rain, Saturday was a beautifully sunny day albeit a bit cool.  The willing participants met at the starting point in Hartland.  Nancy had all the entrant’s materials organized and hand sanitizer and gloves were available.  Masks were worn by those concerned but most considered distancing adequate.   After a time to review the printed General Instructions, the ground rules were discussed in a driver’s meeting led by rallye master, Dean.

The cars were started on a timetable with 2-minute spacing.  The rallye participants were sent on a journey filled with changing colors, overhanging their routes.  Printed Rallye Directions told them where to go (in a nice way.)   The rallye directions included some scoring questions also designed to verify the route after numerous turns.  The scenery included some spectacular residential areas, golf courses, lake living, nature preserves, etc.  Nature provided some animal sightings of wild turkey and deer.

The directions led the group to finish at The Water Street Brewery of Delafield.  Participants gathered in a large room with seating and table distancing to meet health department requirements. Food and drinks were ordered off the menu.  A review of the rallye was made and awards were handed out.  First Place and Fall Traveling Trophy:  Jim & Cathy Loseke; Second Place: Bruce & Deb Hamilton; and Third Place: Jan Miller & Penny Johns.  Congratulations to the place winners and thanks to all who participated.
