From the org-l yahoo board:

We hear it was fast, foggy, and fun, with lots of stage miles, lots of trees. Some cars need fixed before Mt. Hood, but some other ones just need some shakedown time (or the team needs some more practice together).

Well, have I got a deal for you: next Saturday, there's a rally running from Portland all the way to Coos Bay, and less than 1/4 of that is transit miles. Sunday the rally comes back, all the way to Albany, and *still* 5 section miles for every 2 transit miles.

It's the Oregon 1000, sometimes called the Port Orford rally. If your wheels still roll, you should try to make it. The organizers are long-time stage rally workers (like years). Let's give a little back to those guys.

No helmets required (open roads). Speeds are set below the legal limit. This could be a great way to work out bugs in your equipment or procedures. The routebook is complete, mileaged at every turn. The ATC/Finish times are fixed, & perfect intervals are maintained. And if there's a huge dust problem (there won't be), you can dial in up to 6.5 minutes of delay without a penalty.

Now it's not a flat-out rally. It's not a race.
But it is/has:
* measured with precision
* filled with choice roads (pretty smooth, too -- no scheduled service!)
* a great way to practice timekeeping and in-car coordination.
* an ORG-L tradition
* a bargain, for the miles: less than $250 entry fee
* graveled ( or skinny tarmac)
* Hungarian food
* the 'Social Room' in Coos Bay

http://oregonrally.c...nt=oregon-1000k is the website, but ping Chris H. on the FB, or ask one of the many Tabors about it.


p.s. I have a top-level Equipped class navigator (Marvin C., from RASC in Seattle), looking for a steady-footed driver. That entry fee is already paid!
