A charity road rally benefiting the Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children

April 4, 2020


--- ATTENTION: Considering the current situation and out of an abundance of caution we are cancelling this rally event in order to do our part to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. SCCA is committed to protecting the health of our participants, their families, and the members of the communities where they live and work. We hope to reschedule the rally for later this year, once we have emerged from this current crisis. To those who already registered for the rally, you will not be charged the entry fee. We hope to see you all come out and enjoy future road rallies once it is safe and prudent to do so. ---

It’s back! After a brief hiatus, the Children’s Book Run Rally is on again, this time tied to Scottish Rite Hospital's facility in Frisco. The Texas Region of the Sports Car Club of America would like to cordially invite all fellow car enthusiasts to this GTA (games, tours, adventures) rally. No prior rally experience is necessary.

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, which will earn you points toward a trophy.  This is not a speed event, but a fun drive on all paved roads in North Texas.  Course following will be easy.  The rally will start at the Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children in Frisco.

We are not raising money for Scottish Rite, but collecting children's books for them.  Each person in the car should contribute two books, for any age child.  Last time we ran this rally we collected over 200 books for them. We willcollect and turn the books in at registration/check-in.
