100 Acre Wood & Trespasser\'s Will rallies

The annual performance rallies in the Missouri Ozarks are Friday and Saturday, February 25th and 26th. Anybody interested in going, either to help put it on or to spectate?

Unless things fall apart I'll be there both days, probably as a sweep or marshall. They usually don't make assignments until very close to the event.

Greg, I sent in your e-mail address. Have you heard from them yet.

Re: 100 Acre Wood & Trespasser\'s Will rallies

What a coincidence. I just looked at that website Thursday curious when it was going to be this year. The last two years, something has always come up. I am hoping to finally make it this year. I'll let you know about 2 weeks before if I'll be able to or not.

Re: 100 Acre Wood & Trespasser\'s Will rallies

That would be a lot of fun if we all made it and could work together. I just registered on the website. I suggest that you do also, and leave a note in the comments box that you are uncertain at this time. That way they won't be counting heavily on you, but you'll get e-mail updates as things progress. Also put a reference to off-road.com in the comments box so that they'll know that you're the guys I mentioned. And vouched for your competence.

Re: 100 Acre Wood & Trespasser\'s Will rallies

Last year I was the "Green Light." They provided a Subaru WRX with a green rotating light. My job was to follow the last competitor to provide emergency medical service and communications, and to let the workers know that the road is open and they are free to leave. Another time I worked at a finish control, recording the "in times" of each car.

Every other year I used my Jeep, either for vehicle recovery - both competitors and workers - to provide communications, or to set up control points.

The first year I attended was in 1977, before I got the Jeep. I used my Chevy 4WD short bed to do recovery and run messages. It was the year we had 20 inches of snow in the woods two days before the rally. Trying to keep that truck in the middle of the tracks made by the narrow-track rally cars convinced me that I had to get a new Jeep.

Anyway there are many more jobs that don't need a Jeep than that do. You might enjoy working a marshall point. Your job is to keep spectators and natives out of the road, and tell the start control if they don't obey. Once the rally starts it's easy to keep them back, and you get to watch the whole thing from what are usually VERY good places.

Re: 100 Acre Wood & Trespasser\'s Will rallies

This sounds like a blast, and I've wanted to go for the past few years but never was able to. Unfortunately it looks like this year is the same. I've only got one class on Friday but its enough to keep me from making the events on Friday and I really don't wanna be driving the Jeep that far for a day. Maybe next year.
