TOUR TO THE TOMBSTONES RALLY
You’re invited to join us for the next Texas Region SCCA Road Rally on Oct 5. We will tour Grayson and Cooke Counties and visit a number of cemeteries, many of them designated historic. Course–following will be easy with mileages at every turn. All roads are paved.
Rally Day is Saturday, October 5, 2013. Registration opens at 8:30am at El Guapo's Restaurant, in Denton, TX at 419 S Elm St Denton, TX 76201, phone (940) 566-5575. First car out about 9:30, and you will come back to El Guapo's for a late lunch.
You will be directed to a number of area cemeteries in Cook and Grayson counties. At each one you will record the name, and at some of them, you will have to find another piece of information. At the end of the course you will find the cemetery names in a Word Search puzzle.
This is an SCCA GTA (Games, Tours, Adventures) rally. This is not a timed event, except that you do have an overall amount of time to finish the event. This time will be generous. There will be no reason to speed. Any kind of street-legal four-wheel vehicle with at least two people aboard who can read may enter. Cars built before 1950 get a little extra time.
The Rally Fee is $20.00 for SCCA Members, and $25.00 for non-members. There is a $5.00 late fee if not preregistered at motorsportReg.com. There are four classes: First Timer, Novice (<3 rally trophies), General, and Master. The Rallymaster is Liz Witt.
You will want to do online registration (at msreg.com/TTT13msr) because then you will be mailed the rally rules a few days before the event.
There was a Mazda3 in the Map Rally last month, earning fourth place in General class.
