Tulips by Night

Saturday, May 18, 2019

A Road Rally/Social Evening Starting and Ending in Columbia, Ill.

Description: Tulips by Night is an all-DIYC (Do-It-Yourself-Control) nighttime road rally/social evening of about 60 miles designed with the new or casual rally team in mind. Expect paved rural roads, simple calculations (if you want to do them), and easy-to-follow tulip diagrams for route instructions. For teams new to rallying, a brief school before the event will explain how to run the event and answer questions teams might have. After the rally, stick around to enjoy bench racing (rallying) and hospitality at our finish location.

Start: City Hall parking lot, 208 S. Rapp Ave., Columbia, IL 62236.

Finish: Who Dat's restaurant in Columbia, Ill., next door to City Hall.

Size of the field: We are limiting the field to 30 teams.

Registration: You may register here at motorsportreg.com before 11:59 p.m. Thursday, May 16, or at the start in Columbia, Ill., the evening of the event. (Cash or check only the evening of the event.) Entries will be accepted on a first-come basis.

Other good things to know:

Also on May 18, Who Dat’s Southern Food, across the street from our starting location and our rally endpoint, will host one of its popular crawfish boils from 11 a.m. to about 6 p.m. Cedar Street between Columbia's City Hall and Who Dat’s will be closed for the boil. Bright Child will perform from 3 p.m. until 7 p.m., and crawfish will be served with a traditional Cajun plate of potatoes, corn, and andouille sausage. It’s first come, first served, notes Who Dat’s staff, and “we normally run out of food around 6-ish,” they add. So, if you’re so inclined, add a little southern hospitality to your late afternoon/early evening plans May 18 and enjoy some crawfish, potatoes, corn, and sausage before adventuring with us into the heart of southern Illinois.
