Cape Codders Oldtimers’ Rally – April 11, 2015

This week I got a message from Gerry Goulet about the Cape Codders Oldtimers’ Rally.  This rally has a long history in various formats, but it has evolved into an event where competitors are asked to answer questions about objects and locations on Cape Cod with the goal of correctly answering these questions while accumulating the least amount of distance traveled in the car.

This year the Cape Codders Old Timers’ rally will be held on Saturday April 11, 2015 starting and ending in Eastham, Massachusetts.  The following are the details of the rally as provided by the rallymaster, Gerry Goulet.

This “scavenger hunt” of Cape Cod is a low-pressure event. You will be supplied with a map and clues to locations all over the Cape. The object is to determine from the clues where these locations are on the map, plan the shortest route to those locations, once at the location, answer the question(s), and do so driving the fewest miles possible. Each two person team chooses its own pace. The distance traveled will be at least 100 miles. Above all it is hoped that you will have  FUN and maybe learn some things about the Cape.

Registration:    At the Four Points by Sheraton, 3800 State Highway, Eastham, MA.  Friday night 7 PM – 9 PM and Saturday 7:30 AM -9:30 AM.

If you could register Friday night, Saturday morning’s lines will move along more quickly. On Saturday morning, after completing check-in/registration and the odometer check, you will receive your map and clues, at which point you can begin the rally.

Start:  The parking lot of the Sheraton Four Points, 3800 State Highway, Eastham, MA.

While this rally is located close to where I live, I have never competed in this rally, but last year I volunteered to work at the finish control.  This year I have a conflict and will not be able to attend.  This rally has a great following, so be sure to get your entry in as the field is limited to 40 cars.
