Next Rally

Let’s close out the Rally season supporting a good cause while honoring Sasha Lanz! The Texas Region of the Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) would like to cordially invite all fellow car enthusiasts to this Trek rally benefiting Scottish Rite for Children, one of the nation’s leading pediatric orthopedic centers. All are welcome and no prior rally experience is necessary.

A bit of history: Sasha Lanz was instrumental in building a successful RoadRally program in the SCCA Texas Region and leading it for many years. One of his favorite events was the Children’s Book Run. Entrants were asked to donate 2 children’s books, which were gathered at check-in on Rally Day. Over the course of the six years that we held the rally, hundreds of books were donate to Sottish Rite! We would like to keep this tradition alive and conduct a Children’s Book Run in his name every year.

This year we plan to conduct the event again as a Trek, a non-competitive driving event on scenic country roads. No questions, puzzles, tricks or traps, or timed controls, just a fun drive following a pre-determined route in Collin, Grayson and Denton counties using a “convoy style” format – and a bit of trivia: we’ll pass through 7 towns named after women. We’ll provide basic route instructions as a back-up only. Weather permitting, we’ll stop at one or two places of interest for a group picture.

Each person in the car is asked to contribute two NEW books for the patients at Scottish Rite.  They need books for all ages – 5 through 16 – including Look-and-Find books, board books, chapter books, Spanish-language books, etc. We will collect the books at registration/check-in.
