What is navigational rallying?
A car rally is a form of motorsport competition that is fun and challenging, while maintaining a high level of safety. A team of two (or more), made up of a navigator and a driver use a set of instructions to follow a specific route. A further complication is that they are required to maintain a specific average speed (always below the posted limit). At intervals along the route, the organizers will have set up secret control locations. When the competitors encounter one of these checkpoints, they will stop, their time will be checked and a score computed based on an ideal or perfect time. They will then proceed along the route to the next checkpoint where the process is repeated. When all these scores are added up at the end of the rally, the team with the lowest score is declared the winner.
No car preperation is needed, just bring a watch, pen and perhaps a clipboard.

Here are some sample instructions.
Make sure you bring your valid vehicle ownership and insurance slips with you to the start, as well as a permission letter if you are not the owner of the vehicle.
You will need to sign a waiver and if you have minors in the car a minor waiver will also have to be completed.
We’ve posted the waivers in pdf format so you can read them and fill them out ahead of time if needed. This could be important if you plan to run with a minor for whom who you do not have guardianship authority. We will have printed copies at the start. You don’t have to pre-register but if you let us know you are coming we can be sure we have enough instructions printed.
