2016 Snowball Rally

Round 1 of 5 in the CSCC TSD Series

The first of the CSCC Club Level Navigational Rallies is set for Saturday, January 30th 2016.

While the event is geared towards beginners, due to the nature of the roads (mud/dirt/ice/snow?) some driving proficiency is required.

Entrants wishing to score points in the CSCC TSD Series must purchase a 2016 Calgary Sports Car Club Membership. Trophies for the championship will be awarded at the annual awards banquet for the top three overall and all classes.

For teams wishing to learn the basic navigational and mathematical skills required for TSD rallying there will be a novice school before the event. Please RSVP the Organiser (via email) if you will be attending.

This is a great way to shake off the rust before the Trail of the GNU in March.

The rally runs on straight-forward instructions. The rally will be about 300km long, entirely within the province of Alberta. An odometer check section of about 20km will be provided. Roads will be about 25% pavement, 75% gravel/ice/snow and all mileage will be provided in KM units.
