About this event
CLEAR BLUE SKY RALLY
October 20, 2018
This road rally will show off some pretty roads in Collin and Grayson Counties. We will visit the towns of Weston, Van Alstyne and Howe. To keep you on your toes, there will be course-following tests, designed to see how well you can follow the rules. All are carefully looped so you do not get lost if you err. We will ask you questions about signs and landmarks that you see to determine if you have done the “traps” correctly.

The challenge of a Road Rally is to follow a prescribed course at legal speeds and to read signs and landmarks along the route to find answers to questions supplied by the organizers. It is not a contest of speed or racing.
Registrants will be emailed the rally rules two weeks before the event. We encourage entrants to pre-register at least a few days in advance, to allow time to review the rules. To pre-register, page down and click on “Continue.” The Rally Committee reserves the right to limit entries.
