Default Charity roadrally!

Once a year we do a rally benefiting a local charity. The rally (and the entry fee) are the same as usual, but you have to bring a new children's book in addition. The Network of Community Ministries in Richardson provides food, shelter, clothing, counseling, health care, school supplies, and books to children (and their families) in need. Especially around Christmas, entertaining children’s books are a most popular item….but one that runs out fast, as most donors concentrate on more serious needs of the client families. The book may be intended for any age, be on any subject, by any author, just so long as the book is intended for children.

The rally is much like others we have done this year, except in two respects: first, it is on Sunday! This gives our friends at auto dealerships a chance to come play our game. Second, the course-following is simple, with mileages at every turn, but the scoring from signs along the route is more complex. The navigators will be a little busier than usual, with a bit more of a challenge. The concept is borrowed from the SCCA national championship rally that I ran in Michigan earlier this month. I think you will enjoy it.

The details of the Children's Book Run are on the flier at http://texasscca.org/images/document...NBR12flier.pdf . The pre-registration shortcut is tinyurl.com/NBR12msr .

By the way, two Subarus entered our Great Pumpkin Rally last weekend, one taking third in class.
