June 21, 2021: Yeah! The results are posted. Congrats to Jon and Jennifer Smith – great job! The day turned out quite nice weatherwise. The route was entertaining – I think everyone would agree they were kept on their toes. In retrospect maybe I spent a bit too much time on the ‘traps’ and thus missed a couple of easy to see mistakes – which will haunt me for a while! I’ll be a bit more diligent next time. (I think in the end we corrected them in the scoring). Thanks to all for coming – maybe see you next Feb.
June 16, 2021: This is the last Web entry. I have posted a Driver’s Bulletin 1 under the General Instructions heading. I will include and update that in your registration packet on Sat. It may shower a bit so be prepared. See you Sat !
June 13, 2021; The Entry list with car numbers is posted. To clarify the start as at the Park and Ride next to Exit 4 near Randolph Vermont. The TECH FORM is also posted – you need to fill this out and bring it with you to get your Route Information. You need to have printed the Generals and Richta info as there will be none given out at Registration.

May 10, 2021: Now that I’ve done an event as a competitor, I have some more incite into what happens during an event. Although it’s not necessary to score well, it’s nice to actually see the timing point (I never saw any at Seacoast). Now that we have to stay on time – all the time – you need to have a free zone after every “Stop’ (where there isn’t a pause) to avoid speeding after the “Stop”. For a reason I’m not sure about, the scores are ‘better’ than in the past; thus, mileages at the Start of a Leg and at Timing CP’s should be accurate to the thousandth of a mile – OR – competitors need to be told that the mileage ‘rolls over’ from whatever happened to be shown on the hundredth-reading odometer at the CP. – Example: At the start of an event, you understand that the start mileage is 0.00(0) – not 0.00(4, or something); the mileage is understood to be “0” in the thousandth place. At Timing CP’s, a Rallymaster could decide -and tell competitors – that whatever his odo showed to the CP (in hundredths) is what the next leg starts at.
April 28, 2021: The ENTRY INFO is posted. I’ll be putting up more info here as we go along.
April 22, 2021: I’ve been out on the course a couple of times. It’s a nice new area – South and East of Randolph. There’s a few really good stretches of twisty roads over the Vermont hills. It’s also a nice change from the Winter Challenge (and the Seacoast Scramble) – it’s during the day so you can see the countryside – and maybe see the control locations :)! The Entry info will be up on this site next week.
March 15, 2021: I’ve picked a date for the SUMMER CHALLENGE RALLY – JUNE 19. It will start again as last year – at Exit 4 of I 89 in Randolph, VT.; 10 am to 5 pm, running south and east to White River Jct and then back. More info will be available on this web site as we go along; perhaps Entry info on May 1.
