Dear Rally friends,
Our rally school is set for Saturday, November 4th. It will be held in one of the classrooms at my church, St. Barnabas Presbyterian Church at 1220 W Belt Line Rd, Richardson, TX 75080. Registration will open at 9am. We will start the class as soon as it looks like most of the attendees are there.
Admission is free to those who RSVP to [email protected]
. We need to have a firm count to set up the room for our use. $5 per person will be charged for walk-ups.
We will start with a brief overview of rallying in general, with a mention of other types of rallies that you might encounter.
We will describe the three rally types we do, then go into detail on how to best attack each one. Hints and tips will be given. There will be time for questions.
I. Shortest-distance rally. On a map with 12(?) points marked, we give you 1/2-hour(?) to determine the order you would need to visit these to do it in the shortest distance. Then you drive that route, and we measure your distance. There are no tricks or traps, so we won't spend much time on this rally type at the school.
II. GTA rally (Tour). In this rally we give you a route to follow, which you should have no trouble doing. We ask you questions, the answers for which will be found on signs or from landmarks along the way. Most of you won't find (or properly recognize) all of them.
III. GTA rally (Course). Again, you are given a route to follow. But we have ways to influence you to take a detour in several places, and these detours cost you points. Signs and landmarks are used to tell us which route you took, and to tell you that you are where we expect you to be.
Some of the questions are tricky. We will explain some of them in the school. Others we will save for future rallies!
There will not be any driving as part of the school.
The school will be at the northeast corner of Belt Line Rd and Mimosa Dr in Richardson. Come to the north side of the church, and use the door in the middle of that side of the building. Then turn right, and look for a rally sign.
We hope to see you there!
