A note from James Partridge, organizer of the 2013 BAC Bluenose Rally coming up Next Sunday, June 9th! Hope to see you there!
The route check was done by Martin Gillis Saturday. The corrections have been made and the instructions are ready to print. The official distance Exp has been modified to 212.00 km time of 4:28 if all of the check points are placed. Novice distance is 157.53 km time of 3:26. The novice instructions are very straightforward. The Apple Blossoms are out and there are a few spots where a quick picture could be taken of the scenic view. The experienced instructions, while not as straight forward as the novice, can be followed by newcomers to the sport.
The checkpoint locations are going to be busy so a second pair of eyes would be handy.
If you are planning to enter or checkpoint please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org!
