Ohio Milk Run Rally

Saturday, May 15, 2021

 

The Milk Run is back after a several year hiatus. The 150+ mile route will wind through the hills of Ohio's Tuscarawas and surrounding counties. Competitors can expect an absolutely straightforward, gimmick-free Time-Speed-Distance (TSD) road rally, with emphasis on precise timing at well placed controls. The rally will count toward both the SCCA Great Lakes Division Rally Championship, and the SCCA National Touring Rally Championship (Divisional Rally).

NOTE: All teams must enter here. NO WALK-IN ENTRIES WILL BE ACCEPTED ON THE DAY OF THE RALLY!

SCCA members are urged to apply for an annual waiver so that they can bypass the signing of a paper waiver at each SCCA event.

If either team member is a minor, please contact the organizers as soon as possible to obtain an SCCA minor waiver form.  This form must be properly executed in advance of the rally by the minor's parents.

This rally will be timed with the Richta automated checkpoint system.  Each team must carry a "smart" phone or tablet (Android or iOS) running the current version of the Richta Competitor "app".  Look for "Competitor Richta GPS Checkpoints" app on Google Play Store or Apple App Store or click on the appropriate link:
 
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.richta.cpa2&hl=en_US
https://apps.apple.com/us/app/competitor-richta-checkpoint/id1448298019
 
Prior to the rally, all of the checkpoint information (Latitude, Longitude and target arrival times) will be uploaded to the "cloud". All teams will receive a password that will allow them to download this checkpoint information for their cars. Competitors will NOT be able to view this information in advance. Upon arrival at each checkpoint, a team's device will sound an alert. It will then display the team's recorded arrival time, its score for that control, and its cumulative score. The device may also display leg "critique" information provided by the rallymaster.

Some helpful Richta user information can be found on the Detroit Region, SCCA website: http://drscca.org/rally/using-the-richta-competitor-app/

Teams are welcome to register a second phone or tablet under a "phantom" car number 100 greater than their assigned number (i.e. Car#1/101, Car #2/102, etc.).  The second device will serve as an in-time "insurance policy", and will help organizers gain a better understanding of the relative timing behavior of various platforms. It will not be used for scoring unless there is a failure of the primary device.

In accordance with ongoing public health guidelines there will be no official indoor gatherings of rally participants.
