CTR Spring Rally

ctr-car_aDue to the forecast for heavy rain on May 21st, we’re postponing the Spring Rally to Saturday, June 11th. Following route instructions and looking for the answers to clues isn’t fun in the rain.

It’s been many years since CTR has organized a road rally, so we thought we’d start off with a fairly straightforward one.On Saturday, June 11th, we’ll hold a question and-answer rally in Southern Maryland beginning in Upper Marlboro and ending near North Beach. Participants will be given a copy of the route directions and will be asked to answer questions on what they see along the way. Most of the questions will be easy, but there will be a few tougher ones to make it a bit challenging. It will not be a timed event, so there will be no reason to speed – think of it more as a self-guided tour.

A Triumph would be nice, but certainly isn’t mandatory. For safety sake, we very strongly recommend you have a navigator to handle the paperwork and help you keep your head out of the cockpit and your eyes on the road. You’ll need a pen to record your answers and a clipboard or something to keep your route package from blowing away. You shouldn’t need GPS, but if you’d like to use it, that’s okay. The intent is to have fun while enjoying some pleasant backroads in your LBC.

The rendezvous point is the same one we’ve used in recent years for Cruisin’ for Crustaceans: the Shell station at the intersection of Route 301 and the Marlboro Pike in Upper Marlboro, Maryland. (From the Washington Beltway, take Exit 11 and go southeast on Route 4 (Pennsylvania Avenue) to Route 301 in Upper Marlboro. Take Route 301 north toward Baltimore and go just over a half mile to the Marlboro Pike (Route 725), the second traffic light. The Shell station will be on your left.) Cars will be started from there beginning at 10:00 AM.

The route will end at a very casual restaurant near North Beach where you may order off the menu and relax while your results are scored. Please respond to the evite no later than June 9th.
