Chicago Region SCCA
Rushing Waters Fall Tour
Saturday, October 13, 2018

Several years ago the Chicago Region SCCA held a tour-type rally to La Crosse, Wis. A number of entrants had their private radios with them to communicate with each other as we traversed the tour route. There wasn’t much conversation over the radios, but then all of a sudden the silence was broken. A familiar voice came across the airways: “Goats, goats, goats!” Then all went silent. We found out later that there had been a small herd of goats on the roadway just past a curve. Apparently the noise from the car and its driver yelling as loudly as possible on the radio scared the goats away, because no one else observed the obstacle. 

Now, we can’t promise you the same level of excitement, nor does anyone want you to experience it for yourself on the next Chicago Region SCCA fall tour. However, if you join us this coming October 13, the Chicago Region and its G.O.A.T.S. backroads tour series will provide you with an enjoyable day of driving scenic backroads, gathering with friends and enjoying the availability of great food. 

The tour will begin at Love's Truck Court, Roscoe, Ill., at Rockton Rd. and I-90. Registration opens at 9:00 a.m., drivers’ meeting at 9:45, and first car off promptly at 10:00 a.m.

When: Saturday, October 13, 2018

Registration:  Entry deadline is Saturday, October 6, 2018

Entry Fee:  $7 Members, $10 Non-members

Starting point:  Love's Truck Court, Roscoe, Ill., at Rockton Rd. and I-90 

Event Schedule:  Registration opens at 9:00 am, drivers’ meeting at 9:45, tour begins at 10:00 am

The route is 145 miles (about three to three and a half hours) providing scenic roads with plenty of turns and elevation changes. We have planned a mid-point stop (if you choose) at Holy Hills located in southeastern Wisconsin on the highest elevation in this part of the state. Situated on 435 acres of rural countryside, it provides an opportunity to take in some beautiful scenery and study the architecture of the Basilica. If the historic tower is open, you may climb to the top to take in the views.

The end point will be The Trout House at Rushing Waters in Palmyra, Wis., where you can socialize with friends and fellow tour mates and enjoy a refreshment or two. The lunch menu is small but includes a variety of items with prices ranging from $4 -$15. The full service bar offers a wide choice of libations.

Call Steve Laske at 630-495-3820 or George Laws at the club office 847-729-2211 for additional information and to obtain a paper entry form, if desired. 

This event is part of the G.O.A.T.S. (Get Out and Tour Series).
