We would like to thank everyone who came out to our Sno-Go Rally. The weather was beautiful although we were disappointed by the lack of snow covered roads. The mud was challenging. This year we travelled East to Waterford and Corry. After our break we went above Peak N’ Peak and finished at Bob Mazza’s new Five & 20 Spirits in Westfield, NY with awards, prizes, snacks and tastings. Thanks Bob, you are a great host and generous with wine for our prizes. Also thanks to Dave Hammer, Lance Dunn, Bob & Brenda Nick, Tim Mackey, Logan Flaherty, and Jay Dumbeck who worked the checkpoints. Dave Sellers and Janis Ford came up from Columbus. Jay’s nephew, Andrew and wife Danielle came up from Pittsburgh. This was Neohio’s RE Pete Sedlack’s first road rally! Greg Lester and Ron Johnstonbaugh did their usual fantastic job with only 5 points! Major thanks to Greg for his loan of his Alfa rally computer to set up the course and to Neohio for the loan of their rally clocks. A big welcome to our newest member, Garret Hollister! Great time for all. Thanks again!

"Solo" is the name used within the SCCA for Autocross.
Solo competition is defined as low speed, participant driving competition where one car at a time negotiates a prescribed course outlined with traffic pylons as quickly and cleanly as possible. During a run, a driver and his/her car are pushed to the limit. A time penalty is added to drivers' times when they hit an outlining pylon. While competing against the clock on the course, a driver is also competing against other drivers in his/her performance category.
Rallies have traditionally included everything from extremely competitive two person teams to families out for an afternoon drive. There is usually a lunch break at the midpoint, and rallies usually end at a spot where food and beverage is available. Regardless of how competitive you are, rallying is a lot of fun if you like to spend time in your car, see some terrific scenery, and and spend time with congenial people.
