To area rally enthusiasts:
A training session for prospective rallymasters will be held in Richardson, on Saturday afternoon, the 21st of September. The school is open to SCCA members and non-members. Topics will include course safety, insurance, rally types, choosing start, finish, and checkpoint locations, route instruction types, attracting entrants, scoring, finances, typical paperwork, etc. TSD ("Times, Speed, Distance") rallying will be mentioned, but not taught.
The event will be held at Spring Creek Barbeque, 270 North Central Expressway (north of Belt Line) in Richardson, TX 75080, or at the "professor's" home off Arapaho, depending on RSVPs. It will begin at 3 or 4pm. I expect to be through in 2 hours; I will teach the topics more or less in the order of importance, so if you have to leave early, you should still be prepared to do a simple event. There will be a question-and-answer session at the end.
Anyone who has enjoyed an auto rally should consider coming. Even if you never actually put on your own event, you will be a more successful rally competitor if you understand how an event is created. Please RSVP to [email protected]
. There may be some handouts, but be prepared to take notes.
