The Braille Rallye

September 28 @ 9:30 AM - 3:00 PM

The MG Car Club Washington DC Center’s will conduct its 59th annual Braille Rallye on September 28, 2024 at Burke Lake Park, 7315 Ox Rd, Fairfax Station VA 22039.

Lunch is served afterwards, and the subsequent award ceremony concludes at 1 p.m.

The event will start at 9 a.m, and we will aim to have all of the contestants on the road by no later than 10:15 or so.  The 30 mile course through very beautiful Fairfax County country is easy to follow (Steve Boyce and I drove it last week), and can safely be done in under an hour and ten minutes.

We need help with drivers of course.  You can use your MG ,or you can use another British car (or even something else, like a German one!).  Please do not be intimidated by the “competitive” aspect of this event – it is meant to be a fun drive and the few people who got lost last year had just as much fun as those folks who didn’t (if not more).

We also need help manning the check point/turnaround, keeping track of times and scoring, help with serving food, and handing out the awards.

This year we will have several returning participants, as well as a number of new ones, possibly more than twice as many as last year.  We are really looking forward to restoring the Braille Rallye to the status it had years ago as one of the Club’s signature events, and you can help.  Please let me know if you are able to attend and help, and in what capacity.  And feel free to call me if you have any questions.
