The Great Spokane Road Rally
Greater Spokane County Meals on Wheels is proud to bring back The Great Spokane Road Rally for 2018. This last July we did our 1st Road Rally and it was a great success. If you were a part of this event last year, we want to say, “Thank You!” Your support was truly what made this rally a great event. We were able to raise over $10,000 to support seniors and vulnerable adults in our county.
What is The Great Spokane Road Rally?
We start you off at a central location. You will work in a team of 2. When it is time to begin the rally, you will be handed a passport at the starting line. In the passport will be cryptic instructions on where to find the 1st challenge or, as we like to call them, “Pit Stops.” There are 9 different pit stops located throughout the county. Your co-pilot is there to guide the driver to the location. There are also clues to help you along the way.
Pit Stop Challenges
Once you are at the pit stop, you will do a challenge. It is not a physical challenge, but a challenge that I am sure you will find enjoyable. At each challenge, you can even buy a Mulligan and make a participating team have to work a little harder, or try to improve your own score.
After you have completed all of the pit stop challenges, you will return to the starting location. At ~2:30pm, we will start our Valve Cover Racing and social hour. If you have a racer, please bring it. If not, we will have ~25 available for purchase. This year too we will have a valve cover beauty contest, so let’s make them pretty! (By this, I mean pretty cool!)
We plan to then kick off a BBQ around 3:30 and handout awards. We should have you out the door so to say around 5:00pm.
Yes, and I did say awards. How you win the awards is based on how well you do at the challenges. There will be 1st, 2nd, and 3rd awards for the overall winners. For every pit stop, there will be a winner too!
Great Spokane Car Show
During this year's Road Rally we'll also have the 1st Annual Great Spokane Car Show. Registrations starts at 9AM and cars line up by 10:30AM. Awards will be given out at 2PM. Since this takes place during the running of the Road Rally, you'll need need a second vehicle to participate. Click here for more info on the Great Spokane Car Show.
