The Great American Mountain Rally Revival

Gary Hamilton, the Rally-master for the Great American Mountain Rally Revival, sent us a request for volunteers to man checkpoints when the rally passes through CT on Friday October 12th.

No experience is required, and they will have a quick checkpoint class to show folks how to man the clocks and time cars.  The route is shown below, and you will see they are running through the Western portion of Ct from the Danbury area up to the MA border.

The CTR/CTMG Fall Foliage Tour

A.k.a. “A pleasant driving tour of picturesque western Connecticut”  

Our fall foliage run will occur on Saturday the 13th of October and will start in Southbury, CT at the Southbury Green Shopping Center, 775 Main Street.  Take exit 14 off I-84, then turn right at the light on Main Street. Turn right at the next light into the Shopping Center parking lot.  We will gather in front of the  gazebo. 

Tea (coffee) and snacks are available across from our gathering point at Starbucks.  (Or if you like Dunkin Donuts, it’s 2 blocks left on Main Street!)

Plan to arrive by about 9:30 a.m.  A brief drivers meeting will take place at 10:00 am, and we will depart the parking lot about 10:20 a.m.  Participants will follow a published route, the driving distance will be approximately 73 miles. We will take a break approximately mid way along the route.

The “driving tour” will end at a family style eatery where we can enjoy a lunch and the company of our fellow participants.
