Most of you are aware that we had to postpone the 57th Annual Braille Rallye because of heat. It seemed the prudent thing to do with the dangerous heat we had the weekend of 20 July. Joe, Ken and several others mulled over the decision for a couple of days. You don’t postpone an event lightly, especially one that has run 56 consecutive years. It was the right thing to do. Also rightly, we can announce that we have secured a new date of Saturday, 16 November for the 57th Annual Braille Rallye. Stay tuned for more details.

We have also finalized the new date for the Test Drive, Sunday 22 September. See article elsewhere in the Spark.
