The rally is much like others we have done this year, except in two respects: first, it is on Sunday! This gives our friends at auto dealerships a chance to come play our game. Second, the course-following is simple, with mileages at every turn, but the scoring from signs along the route is more complex. The navigators will be a little busier than usual, with a bit more of a challenge. The concept is borrowed from the SCCA national championship rally that I ran in Michigan earlier this month. I think you will enjoy it.

Rally update

2012 CHILDREN'S BOOK RUN, BENEFITING NETWORK

Eleven cars have entered as of today. I expect 25-30 by rally day. Subaru and Mazda already have enough entries to form a team. We also have MINIs (2), a Ford Galaxy, a Honda Accord, and a Hyundai Santa Fe.

GOOD NEWS: If you can't come to the rally, but you would like to support our charity, you can drop off new children's books at two locations:
MINI of Dallas, 6250 Lemmon Avenue, Dallas. Receptionist desk.
Subaru of Plano, 4480 W Plano Pkwy, Plano. Chris Culbertson's office.

Also if you can't be with us on December 2, we need course checkers, both novice and experienced. On a day of your choosing, we will give you all the paperwork, and you can run the event. Then you report to us your impressions, and any problems you had. This not only gives you a chance at some fun you might otherwise miss, but helps us put on a better event. Just send an email to rally@texasscca.org .

The Children's Book Run ends the 2012 Texas Region Championship Rally Series. Class winners will be invited to the SCCA banquet early next year to pick up their trophies.

You will have to catch us. We leave Richardson at 9:30am, and arrive in Sherman about 1pm. The route is secret, so I can't tell you where to wait to see them pass. But they are going at legal speeds on paved roads, spaced one minute apart. To be honest, it's not much of a show, from the outside. But in the rally cars, it's a blast. Why not just enter?
