About this event
Rescheduled for Feb. 29, 2020.
Drive the back roads of Northeastern Minnesota. This year's MWR uses roads west and north of Duluth in Carlton and St. Louis Counties. The course goes approximately from Scanlon to Cotton and back. The total distance will be about 130 miles.
This is not the route I had originally intended, but for some odd reason it was the direction I headed. About halfway through I realized it was a rally that Randy Jokela would have put on as the Sno*Fall. Randy passed away in 2019, so this has become "The Randy Jokela Memorial Sno*Fall Rally".

The Rally Route
Course following can be done by using the Rabbit Rally app, available for free from the appropriate app store, for Apple or Android smartphone or tablet, or by printing out a PDF of the Route Instructions. The Rabbit Rally app uses GPS to determine your location on the route and lets you know if you are early or late during each TC. The current version of Rabbit Rally is v.2.9.11.
The separate MiRally app for scoring is no longer required. It has been incorporated into recent versions of Rabbit Rally 2. Entrants will be added to an event spreadsheet at Registration that governs who is scored.
Using the Rabbit Rally app for course following puts the team into Class L.
Teams may use a printed copy (PDF) of the route in Class E, with a dedicated rally computer such as a Timewise or Zeron, or in Class S using the stock odometer.
You are responsible for insuring the following are in order:
Headlights (high and low beams) and parking lights
Taillights and brake lights
Horn, windshield wipers and directional signals
Foot brakes and parking brake
Winter Tires (very highly recommended depending on conditions)
A tow rope, shovel, warm jacket, boots and a blanket are suggested. These are things any car should have in winter if you drive in MN.
