Keep 'Em Comin'

First let me say that I am really excited about the enthusiastic response I have been receiving. It looks like this is shaping up to be quite a blast. With that in mind, I would like to encourage everyone to post comments and questions directly to the website, so that I can address any questions/concerns to everyone at the same time. Allow me to clarify a few points now.

A few people have asked if it would be beneficial to be familiar with the area. This is a definite "YES!" It sort of "goes with the territory" that familiarity with streets, etc. will help you to get around much more easily and, therefore, quickly. However, possession of a good map (or two) should allow anyone to be able to complete the road rally. Hint: there are various free maps available at the Gateway Visitor's Center on America's Cup Ave.

A point on costumes: These can be as intricate or as simple as you choose. You may take the theme literally or stretch it as far as your imagination will allow. That is entirely up to you. It just makes the road rally more fun (running around in public dressed like a bunch of bumbling buffoons!) and signifies to others that you are participating in an event. Plus... it makes your pictures that much more memorable!

As far as children are concerned, the rally is designed for adults. However, those of you with older children may wish to invite them to participate. Those with younger children may bring them along in their car (even though they are not team members), but this is not very conducive to getting around quickly and, therefore, not recommended. If you do not want to leave your children with a babysitter for more than a few hours, you may bring them along to the dinner/party (see Qualification tab SIGN UP section). On the other hand, you are certainly free to take a night for yourselves to participate in "Grown-up Time."

On a similar note...the puzzles/questions in this road rally are designed to be DIFFICULT (though not entirely impossible). Keep this in mind when deciding who will participate. The intention is to reduce the likelihood that any team will complete everything and receive full points, thereby reducing the likelihood of a tie.

As a reminder, the road rally begins with this website. Do not overlook this important fact, as it may cause you problems "getting out of the gate" and lead to unnecessary "pitstops" further down the road.
