Winged Victory X

October 4 | 9:00 AM | Capital Campus (North Diagonal)

An 80+ mile gimmick rallye that challenges both novice and experienced teams to answer quirky questions you find along some of the great MINI roads in Thurston and Pierce counties. Registration starts at 9:00 with a driverís meeting at 9:45 and the first MINI out at 10:00.
Cost: $10.00 (Members) - $20.00 (Non-Members)

Because of the state's requirement that no registration payments are processed on the campus grounds, preregistration for the event is required.
Please RSVP for the event.

Excellent. Don't forget to bring a clipboard and pencil - or pen if you don't make mistakes.

Thanks for the reminder, Dave.

No one got horribly lost, everyone eventually ending at the correct end point, though no where near the same order they started out in. The weather was great all day, with no fog banks or anything to navigate, and some high clouds through out the day.

Speaking just for ourselves, Deanne and I found that it's very easy to get tripped up by order of precedence, and made the 107 mile trip into a nice 122 route. Thankfully for us, we found later clues before finding the ones we had skipped, so we were able to back track and catch up those that we missed along the way. Did get a great look of wonderment from Ron as we passed him going the opposite direction from what he was expecting, though.

For the final scoring, there were 15 clues that everyone was graded on (one clue being dropped due to ordering). The trivial questions at the midway point didn't have to be factored in, if I remember what Ron said on that subject. I want to say Denise and her co-driver came in third, Tina and her co-driver second, and Deanne and I came in first.

It was a really fun day, and great running for the 10th anniversary. Hard to believe it's been that long already. Next, we need more people to run in the rally!

Eric, thanks for the nice write-up. One of these days I might get those questions/clues in the right sequence and spelled correctly.

So, now the big question is should there be WV X1 or should we create other rallies with various starting locations?

And for those wanting to try their hand in putting together a rally, I will be glad to help you out... but you shouldn't rely on my reviewing skills.

I think Winged Victory is becoming a tradition. I vote to keep it going!
