Fellow CJCC Members
On Saturday October 14, 2017 Gunter will be holding the CJCC Fall Foliage Time and Distance Rally. For those who have never been on one of Gunter's rallies let me explain 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. A Driver and Navigator is a must because you need to read the directions from check point to check point as you drive along the route.
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. It's a fun day and this time of the year you get to enjoy the fall foliage along the rally route. Rain Date will be on Sunday, October 15, 2017.
We need to have at least 10 participants to hold the rally.
