Potential Ratpack Peninsula Event, Gaging Interest
 
I'm thinking of doing a kind of Rally Event to have fun and raise money for the Peninsula Habitat for Humanity.

It would be a driver and navigator style event that is NOT A STREET RACE but more of a tour of the peninsula while trying to follow "simple" directions and solve a few puzzles/riddles.

It would be timed and penalties would be added to your time for wrong answers, usually indicating you were lost or could not follow "simple" directions!


Cost would be minimal ($20?) and we'd end at a watering hole/resturant to ahnd out a few gag gifts and tell lies about how well you did or how lost you got.

Thinking early March when the weather is a bit more stable.

Post up if you have an interest in something like this.:willy::willy:

Great idea. :yesnod:

I was looking at doing something similar for the Gloucester Red Cross in April. I would love to do a cruise, but I'll be away on business in March.

SOLD ! Yorktown Battlefields would be a great locale....

I always wanted to do one of these but never got the chance. Count me in! I'd be more than willing to help as well if you needed any.

I should probably know this but where is the peninsula?

I figured that, the expiration date on the panels have almost hit their 6 month mark. They all need to be removed and re-hung. :lolsmile:

I did the Fredericksburg Battlefields one last year...Local Radio station joined in and had lunch provided by local Dealership. Got a police escourt out of town in groups of 12 or so cars to start the event. Had a blast !!! Ended up with a little awards show and a mini auto cross...Women on their backs on auto creepers going through cones pushing with their feet !!! Next, the teens there did RC vetts throuth the cones.

Ooops, umm posted in wrong thread.

tomurphjr 01-29-2010 07:26am

This sounds very fun Tony! Count me in as well!

Shrek 01-29-2010 09:21am

Great idea Tony! You may want to add a charity boxing match to final destination.

For those of you that team up with your spouse to navigate, go ahead and sign up for the boxing match at the finish.:beat: Or you could look at it as an oppertunity for some great make up sex later on.

Just kidding!! Looks like fun! :D

If my wife is my navigator...she won't be with me by the time we reach the final destination? :D

(we've done this before)
