Time and Distance Rally - Saturday, June 4, 2016
May 24, 2016
Fellow CJCC Members.
We are happy to announce that the Spring Time and distance Rally on June 4th will take place as scheduled. So far 11 members have signed up to attend. It's not to late to sign up if you would like to participate on June 4th, just let me know so Gunter can add you to the list of people staying for lunch.
There is one change to the Itinerary this time. The Start Location will be at the PetSmart Parking Lot in the Promenade Shopping Center at the corner of Foorhill Rd. and E. Main Street in Bridgewater. (across the street from the Somerset Patriots Ball Park)
For those who have never been on one of Gunter's rallies let me explains what takes place.
Gunter plans out the Rally route through the back roads of Somerset, Hunterdon, and Morris Counties ending up at the Long Valley Pub. The time it took Gunter to drive the route at posted speed limits is the time which participants in the rally try to match to win.
Participants meet at the designated starting location and receive a Car #, Rally Instructions and the Directions to the first of 3 Check Points. Each car leaves the starting point at 2 minute intervals where their start time is recorded. At each Check Point your time is recorded and Directions are given to the next Check Point until you finish up at the Long Valley Pub. Remember this is not a race. The idea is to match Gunter's time which is not known to the participants.
After all cars finish up at the Long Valley Pub times are calculated, followed by a luncheon on the patio of the Pub, and awards for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place are given out . Each person is responsible for the cost of their own lunch. There is a $10 entrance fee which covers the cost of the trophies.
See attached Itinerary for meeting time and departure instructions.
