BMW Seattle Classic Motorcar Rally
November 10-11, 2001 Mini-Rally Route and Schedule are set

Vicki and I spent the weekend completing the route planning for the November 10th Mini-Rally.  We are pleased with the results.  The course will offer a route of progressive difficulty, beginning with the usual odo check and an opportunity to work with straight-forward route instructions.

 As the Rally moves forward, we will include a variety of challenges including traps for the unwary. We have found some delightful roads with good speeds and plenty of twisties.  A 1-mile stretch of packed-gravel will be included as a free-zone.  The November colors should be beautiful in the Fraiser Valley.  I hope you can join us.

The Schedule is as follows:

1:00 pm - Rally orientation - Aldergrove Country Meadows Best Western
1:30 pm - First car out
4:30 pm - Rally concludes
5:30-6:30 pm - Cocktails - Aldergrove Country Meadows Best Western
6:30 - Buffet Dinner and Awards

The Poppy Rally follows on Sunday with a continental breakfast at the Aldergrove Country Meadows Best Western and first car out at 9:00 am. An awards brunch follows the Poppy Rally.

Additional details on the rallies are below.
November 10-11, 2001 Mini-Rally heads for British Columbia

On Saturday, November 10, 2001, a one-day mini-rally will be presented in British Columbia's Fraser Valley followed by an awards buffet. Presented by the BMW Seattle Classic Motor Rally organizers, the Fall Mini-Rally is designed to encourage new rally teams to experience TSD rallying and provided regular participants in the BMW Seattle Classic Motor Rally with an opportunity to improve their rally skills. This also proves to be a great opportunity to introduce a new navigator or driver to vintage rallying.

The rally will begin Saturday afternoon and last three hours in duration, to be followed by cocktails and an awards buffet. A 30-minute rally orientation will be provided prior to the start. Teams will assemble in Aldergrove, British Columbia at the Aldergrove Country Meadows Best Western for the orientation and start. Participating teams are allowed to bring sporting motorcars of any vintage due to the possibility of wet weather, however, in 2000 the weather proved excellent. Vintage rally rules will apply.  For a list of the 2001 and 2000 rally participants, visit: http://www.collegeplan.org/ralfalrf.htm

Participating teams will receive a commemorative rally plate for the event and awards for the top-ten positions will be presented. A dinner buffet will follow the rally. The cost per team for the Mini-Rally and buffet will be $85. The Rally concludes back at the Aldergrove Best Western with many participants staying on for the Poppy Rally on Sunday.

All proceeds from the Mini-Rally will again benefit the nonprofit College Planning Network, a Pacific Northwest charity, assisting individuals seeking higher education opportunities.http://www.collegeplan.org
