 Rally for Fun
Rich Moores
What is a Rally? Rally (Mirriam-Webster) tran- sitive verb
1a : to muster for a common purpose b : to recall to order
2a : to arouse for action
b : to rouse from depression or weakness
The Road Rallies presented by PCA Metro are all these things and more. Yes, we mus- ter for a common purpose. We are drawn to the Porsche marque for many reasons. We love the cars. We love to drive them, to care for them, to show them off, and to talk about them at any opportunity. Rallies provide all these things. A Rally is a recall to order. Ral- lies are created with a specific course to follow and a specific task to perform while driving the course. Participating in a Rally will definitely arouse everyone for action as it will rouse us from depression and weakness. What better course of action than to enjoy driving our cars on a Rally? Lastly, all Metro events are de- signed to bring people together as friends. We all have the love of the cars in common.
What do I need to Rally?
1: A car to drive (It doesn’t even have to be a Porsche)
2: The desire to have Fun
Yes, it can be as simple as that!
What about competition on a Rally?
Different types of Rallies can provide competi- tion among the entrants. The level of competi- tion is always up to you. In reality completion gives everyone something to do while follow- ing the course and gives the Rally Master the honor of awarding prizes at the concluding
celebratory event.
Summer Rallies: Save the Dates
July 15, 2018 The Vintage Rally will start in Islandia (Exit 58 of LIE) and finish at Osprey’s Dominion Winery in Peconic. The Vintage Rally will be a question and answer Gimmick Rally. As you explore the scenic roads of Long Is- land’s North Fork you will be asked questions about things you encounter along the route. There will be a new route. In my box of past Rallys and I found the earliest Vintage Rally route instructions. These route instructions from 1983 created by the “Master” Ted Ohland are the basis of this year’s Vintage Rally. Most of the roads are still in use today! But some
of the signs and clues are long gone. Due to space limitations only 40 cars (and that is the absolute maximum) will be able to participate.
Please register early. program-15903931646
July 28, 2018 Zone 1 Rally will be part of the Zone 1 Weekend. The Zone 1 Rally will be a Gimmick Rally. It will start and finish in Hunting- ton, Long Island. We will explore the history of Huntington Township by answering questions about Historic Markers seen along the route.
Yours in the sport,
Rich Mooers, Rally Master
