August 29th: First annual Gimmick Rally is happening this Saturday. We are still hoping to reach 10 cars (with a driver and navigator). The Fun Run gimmick Rally is sponsored by the Lone Star Chapter of the BMW Car Club of America (LSC BMW CCA). A gimmick rally is essentially a scavenger hunt where a driver and navigator must find their way to an unknown destination using clues along the way to guide them. The route is pre-defined and handed out at the beginning of the event. Along the route, there are clues to decipher in order to “win” the rally.
The Fun Run Gimmick Rally is a self-paced, non-timed, street legal gimmick rally. The organizers of the event have covered thousands of miles choosing the route, selecting the gimmicks, and ensuring that fun will be had for drivers of all types. Prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place.
How can I participate in the fun? To participate, the driver must be a member of the BMW CCA and must pre-register. The minimum team consists of two people: a driver and a navigator. Simply email Brian George at firstname.lastname@example.org the names of your driver and navigator plus any other ride-along participants.
How does this differ from one of the tours that the club does? No leader, minimum of two people in each car, goal is to find the gimmicks along the pre-scribed route.
WHO: You and a navigator (if you are only 1 person, please tell Brian and we can look at teaming people up)
WHEN: 8:30 am August 29, 2015 (TIME UPDATED TO 8:30 from 9a)
WHERE: Reverchon Park in Downtown Dallas (3505 Maple Ave, Dallas, TX)
DISTANCE: 250 miles (will take us out of town)
NOTE: As of 8/25/2015, we have 6 named Cars with a driver and navigator and 3 other potential drivers/navigators from the other participants. We will run this as a Rally.
