Covered Bridge 50, USRRC Weekend
November 5-6 2016
Mount Snow, West Dover, Vermont
Come join New England Region of SCCA as it celebrates 50 years of Ted Goddard and Covered Bridges and the roads less traveled. Covered Bridge 50 weekend will be headquartered at Mount Snow Resort, West Dover, VT on the weekend of November 4-6, 2016. This is also the USRRC (United States Road Rally Challenge)/CB50, on Saturday 11/5, will be the 50th Annual running of the Covered Bridge Rally. It is a straight forward TSD tour rally of approximately 140 miles. The name for the rally came from Ted’s love of covered bridges, probably fostered by the fact that Vermont has over 100 of them. Ted has been the rallymaster for all 50 years! The rally will be run in two sections, a morning and afternoon section. Each will begin and end at Mount Snow Resort, in West Dover, VT. Contestants should expect a majority of unpaved public roads and maybe even a trip on a Ted Goddard divided highway. Passing through a number of covered bridges during the rally is a given. Make sure to obey the signs posted on the bridges. Afterwards, enjoy snacks and a beverage and revel in the adventures of the day while scoring is being done. Entry will be limited to the first 50 registered teams.
You would be amiss if you didn’t hang around for Sunday’s “A Bridge Too Far” course rally by rallymaster John Buffum. This will be a moderately trapped TSD rally suited for most ability levels; however no Novice Class will be included. Traps may include those based on timing or speed, main road designations, and signage, as examples, but in no way limited to these. Have no fear, if you fall for a trap, John’s instructions will lead those who stray back to where you belong after a short detour. This will be a half day rally so travelers can head on their journey home by the middle of the afternoon. Entry will be limited to the first 35 registered teams. Enjoy an ice cream sundae to close out the Covered Bridge weekend celebration.
There will be displays and interesting CB memorabilia on display throughout the weekend.
