Back in Ohio, the non-SCCA affiliated club I ran used to host Road Rallies, we'd call them "Gumball330". This was a nod to the infamous movie and our area code/club name. There are pictures here:




Each car consisted of a driver/navigator team with a list of instructions (In 0.2m, turn left. Turn right at "Buy Here, Pay Here". In 5.2m, turn right.). Cars were released from the starting line in one minutes intervals, went through two checkpoints and then arrived at the finish line. Your time was recorded at each checkpoint and the finish and points were awarded accordingly. You earned points by arriving at the checkpoints/finish on time, judging by the average course mph we advertised, and if you traveled the exact distance (followed the course exactly, didn't make wrong turns). These weren't official TSD Rallies, but more of a "Poker Run" for car enthusiasts.

It was cheap to participate ($20) so we'd always have a lot of participants (50-60 cars sometimes) and it was good, clean fun. The money went towards the prizes/trophies/plaques and then to the club so we host more events. A course was about 100 miles and it'd take a few hours to complete -- they were a blast! And we'd end at a restaurant/bar to give out awards and talk about the day. These were summer, winter, and even night events.

Anyway, does anyone think something like that would work down here? Think TRSCCA would host something like it?
