SCCA Milwaukee Region presents
SPRING SCAMPER car rally - Madison, Wisconsin
Sunday April 7, 2024
a Charity fund raising rally for the Dane County Humane Society
Join your fellow car enthusiasts for this 4 hour, 100 mile time-speed-distance road rally. You and a partner (driver and navigator) will be issued a set of Route Instructions that will take you on a scenic journey through the marvelous country roads west of Madison, Wisconsin. This is a "Tour" type rally and there are no traps or tricks - just drive, enjoy the great roads and marvelous scenery and try to arrive at each checkpoint at precisely the right time. Trophies will be presented to the teams who do the best job of arriving at the checkpoints at the proper times. This is a rally designed especially for people with little or no rally experience.
We'll be using the Richta GPS checkpoint system to record your arrival time at each checkpoint. Once you register, you'll receive information on how to download a custom app to your smartphone. You'll keep this app open while you run the rally and it will use the GPS signal from your device to record your arrival time at each checkpoint. Once you pass a checkpoint, the app will automatically calculate your score for that checkpoint and display it to you! No more waiting for the end of the rally to see how you did. You'll see your score on each checkpoint as you go along.
Dane County Humane Society provides refuge, healing and new beginnings to over 9,000 companion animals, exotic species, farm animals and injured or orphaned wild animals every year.
DCHS is a private, non-profit, community-supported organization and is not affiliated with any government agency or national animal welfare organization. We are an open admission shelter accepting all animals that need assistance regardless of age, health status or temperament. DCHS has an adoption guarantee, meaning all healthy or treatable animals can stay at DCHS as long as it takes to find a loving home.
As one of the nation's leading animal welfare organizations, DCHS offers humane education programs, community-based care for pets, foster care for animals for victims of domestic abuse, a pet food pantry, dog training classes, wildlife rehabilitation and much more. Our volunteers and professionals come together every day in the spirit of Helping People Help Animals, and together create a culture of compassion, empathy, integrity and accountability.
