Sweetheart Ride Road Rally

Fort Worth and points north...

About this event

Texas Region SCCA’s 2017 Road Rally program begins with the

Join us in Fort Worth at the new Buc-ee's (destination gas station/convenience store/rest stop/etc.) on the North Freeway immediately south of the Texas Motor Speedway (across Texas 114) for the first rally of our new season.  Jerry White will again be the rallymaster for this event.

As usual for Texas Region rallies there will be many wordplay puzzles to solve based on signs found along the route.  Just like last year there will also be some "complete the quote", math, count, and word crop puzzles.  To Keep it fun you will never have more than one puzzle to solve at a time.

In many cases four possible answers will be given so all you'll have to do is make a mark on your score sheet to indicate which ones you found (if any).

In addition to the puzzles there will also be a leg on which you will have a chance to avoid penalty points by keeping on time as you drive the route.

Checkpoints at Bev's (gas station/etc.), 1003 N FM 156, Ponder, TX will give you opportunities for breaks and to see how you are doing.
