ONTO Fall Rally
You are invited to Texas for ONTO Fall, an SCCA National GTA (games, tours and adventures) rally. This will be a course-following rally with the scoring questions designed to determine if you followed the correct course and/or applied the rules correctly. All “traps” are carefully looped so you do not get lost if you err. Our Rally Master, Liz Witt, adds: “I'm incapable of putting on a rally without the tricks reminiscent of the trap rallies I loved many years ago--Rustler's Run and Heart of Dixie and others I've long forgotten. So, there are plenty. And some nice roads. Would love to have you come. October in Texas is usually beautiful.”
The rally will start and end in McKinney, Texas on the northeast edge of the Dallas Metroplex and will traverse the paved back roads of Collin County.
The challenge of a Road Rally is to follow a prescribed course at legal speeds and to read signs and landmarks along the route to find answers to questions supplied by the organizers. It is not a contest of speed or racing.
