Was That It!?!?!?! Sunday August 30th, 2009, Fun Rally meandering around the lower CT River Valley. The adventure will explore some of the scenic and less traveled roads of the lower Connecticut River Valley. You may expect a pleasant leisurely drive with some great natural scenery, regional history and some interesting architecture along the way. Participants will gather, check in and sign the BMWCCA Insurance Waiver between 1:00 and 1:30. The starting location is the unoccupied portion of the Home Depot plaza behind the Middletown CT Friendly's restaurant, on Route 66. There will be a short drivers meeting at 1:45 and Cars will be sent off incrementally starting at 2:00. The objective is to correctly answer as many of the provided questions as possible. Questions will be about various features and landmarks along the route, so driver and navigator will have to look sharp to stay on course and find all the answers. The three cars that find the greatest number of correct answers will be awarded gift certificates toward their dinner at the final destination. It is highly recommended that this event be conducted as a Driver/Navigator pair. A solo driver would be at a substantial disadvantage trying to read the route instructions, search for the required features and record answers to the questions (Botond, this means you!). The rally is expected to wrap-up around 5:00 at the Blue Oar open air cafÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€ Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â© off of CT Route 154 on the western shore of the CT River in Haddam. The Blue Oar features a casual water's edge atmosphere and excellent food. Please note that the Blue Oar accepts cash or personal checks but does NOT accept credit cards and they are BYOB if you wish to (responsibly) enjoy an alcoholic beverage or 2 with your dinner. Entry fee is $5 per car to cover prizes. Any excess proceeds will be donated to the Club's primary charity, the ALS Foundation. Registration will be limited to the first 20 cars. Please email your RSVP to LJohnson@CTValley.org, or call 860-537-1715. Thank you and I'm looking forward to seeing you on the last Sunday of August!
