About this event
Start the new year out right with a First Friday Niter rally on January 6! The rallymaster is Larry Scholnick, and he describes his rally as a trip around the rim of the Valley, the San Fernando Valley, that is. It really does travel from place to place. There are some traps on this rally, but no more than one per leg (and not all legs have traps). Trap values average about 30 seconds. FYI, my favorite instruction on the rally is this one:
STRAIGHT(ish) at STOP.
We will be using the Richta GPS Competitor app for timing and scoring, with timing in seconds. The max penalty this month is 120 seconds (2 minutes) per leg. All checkpoints are listed in the route instructions with a Restart after each checkpoint. This app is FREE and easy to use on any GPS-enabled smartphone. Go to the App Store or Google Play Store, or https://richtarally.com/. There is no need for additional timing equipment or clocks – your Official Time shows in the app!
Also, if you want to see all the scores at the Finish, download the FREE Richta Scoreboard app also. Finish will be at IHOP, 5031 Kanan Road, Agoura Hills (at the Kanan offramp of the 101).
