2014 Snowball Novice TSD Rally

The first of this year's CSCC Novice TSD Rallies is set for Sunday, February 23rd.

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

In addition to an insured, registered and maintained vechicle, you will require winter tires, first aid kit and 30cm warning triangle. (see our sponsor if you need equipment). A set of mudflaps are also recommended and since this event may run into darkness decent headlights would do no harm.

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 just in time for the Trail of the GNU on March 22nd 2014.

The rally runs on straight-forward instructions. The rally will be about 250km long, entirely within the province of Alberta. An odometer check section of about 10km will be provided. Roads will be about 30% pavement, 70% gravel/ice/snow and all mileage will be provided in KM units. - Race and Rally Equipment
