Rally postponed!

I am sorry to announce that we are postponing the Children's Book Run rally until next year, due to the predicted ice storms. All the sources I have checked make me sure that there will be ice on the roads that we will rally on, and that is just not acceptable.

We have done a lot of work on this event, and it will not be wasted. We will hold it next March, after the predicted last freeze of the year. The books you have will still be welcome at Scottish Rite then, so hang onto them.

The rally committee is just as disappointed about the delay of the rally as you are. We look forward to seeing you at the start of the 2014 rally season in March.

Funny how attitudes change with geographic location. Up here in New England people are disappointed if the roads AREN'T covered in snow for a winter rally. (Not sure what we do about ice though. Don't get as much of that)

Down here in the south, ice storms are bad juju. We just don't have the infrastructure (salt/sand trucks, ect.) to deal with ice and snow as it's not that common an occurrence. Think about how New England would deal with triple digit temps in the summer like we get down here on the gulf coast at least 30-40 days out of the year.

I know ice is a non starter for the south. Even up here it sucks as we still have people in Northern New England without power a week after an ice storm.

Last year we had to postpone our annual meeting because the state got over two feet of snow. As hard as we tried to get the word out a few people still showed up. Yup, they were rally people.

And in another geographical twist - our first RallyCross of the year, which was scheduled for this weekend, has been postponed a week. The reason - Going to be too warm.
