Default Prices

Admission will b $10 per car.
Each car will require a driver and a navigator.
So basically $5 a person.
That will also include food, drinks, and anything else we have going on.
T-shirts and other merchandise will be on sale. I'm not sure the price yet because i dont have a total of how many i am going to have made for the event.
The Event is Non Profit, So nothing is going to be to expensive.
Any extra money that is made is going to go into next years event, to make it even better than this year. So Far i have invested alot of my own money into the event, everything from renting Venues to food and merchandise.
this event should not break anyones bank, everything is price to pay for the event itself and hopefully get a good start for next years.
We are have people coming from All over Ohio, Colorado, Wisconsin, Kentucky, Indiana and maybe Texas, and hopefully alot of other places. I hope the event is huge and sets the stage for years to come!

The rally is not just a drive, we will be handing out a list of specific driving directions, the navigator will guide the driver throught the list, making sure to stop at 4 special areas to pick up a playing card. At the end of the rally you will receive your last card. the car with the best poker hand will win an awesome prize (not sure yet, maybe an I-pod). Each car will be timed during the rally. The car that is closest to the set time will be the winner of the rally. The trick is no one knows the set time (until It is revealed after the rally). This is not a race, but it does allow cars to, drive really fast, some the speed limit, and some slow. So no matter how you prefer to drive you could still end up the winner.

If you want to do the drive yourself then you may just want to follow another car so you know where all the stopping points are. We just encourage a navigator so the driver focus's on the road and doesn't have any distractions.
