Doggone Days of Summer Road Rally
The Doggone Days of Summer Road Rally so named because it is scheduled for Sunday,
September 13. This is the last weekend of summer and the official end of the Dog Days
of Summer. The road rally, co-sponsored by Safe Animal Shelter and Whitey’s Fish
Camp, is being held to raise much needed funds for Safe Animal Shelter.
For those unfamiliar with this type of road rally, the premise of Doggone Days of
Summer is for the driver and passenger to look for landmarks and clue s, for which they
receive points, while driving a course laid out by the rally organizers. Participants will
travel the roads and neighborhoods of south Clay County, driving approximately 35 miles
for 1½ hours. It requires two people to compete. Instructions are given in code, which
the passenger reads for the driver to execute. And, it takes both driver and passenger to
look for clues (approximately 50) and checkpoint signs which are valued at 5 points each.
The team that scores the most points in the time allocated will win the cash prize of $100.
The rally is not a race. In fact, participants caught speeding will be disqualified from
rally competition and teams returning early will have points subtracted from their overall
score. Competitors are cautioned to stay within the speed limit at all times – especially
while passing through neighborhoods.
The rally will start at 3:00 PM on Sunday afternoon with teams checking in and getting
final instructions prior to the starting time at 3:30 PM. Upon completing the course,
teams will return to Whitey’s to enjoy food, beverages and live music. The winning team
will be named once all the scores have been tallied.
Cost to participate is $30.00 per team. Registration forms can be obtained at Safe Animal
Shelter, 2913 County Road 220, Middleburg or at Whitey’s Fish Camp, County Road
220. For more information call the shelter 276-7233 or 298-1561.
