Fall Classic Rally

Sunday, October 25

As the saying goes, many hands make light work, and as a result, the annual Fall Classic Rally for the Faryon Cup was another great success. Event Coordinator’s Sue and Robin Patterson were joined by Susan Chapple in the planning process for this year’s event. Apparently the route was surveyed no less than five times! On the day, frequent previous winners Tom and Cheryl Rivers and Glen Fraser assisted at checkpoints along the way (all the better to give others a chance at the big prize). David Bradley was the official photographer for the day.

The organizers were also able to arrange suitable weather for the afternoon, encouraging nearly two dozen teams to arrive at the Hamsterly Beach starting point.

And at the start, a four page set of directions, also containing 29 questions, was supplied to navigators. The start was staggered, with departure times being noted. But before leaving the parking lot, a test was put to drivers ­­— how close could they place their vehicle to a parking pylon without knocking it over. Results were mixed.
