What is a rallye?

A rallye is basically a treasure hunt on wheels or foot. Each team (of 2 people) is given a list of directions that they must follow to navigate through the course (e.g. Turn left at Wawa, or Drive straight until you come to a statue of Shakespeare). Along the way, the teams have to find answers to questions (e.g. Where do you find a $1.99 Super Hoagie?, or Who built the Shakespeare statue?). There are different types of questions with different point values (the harder ones are worth more). The team that answers the most questions correctly wins!

Each team is given four hours to complete the course without penalty. The course is designed to be walked/driven in less than two hours, so there should be no need to hurry - unless you are going way too slow. Along the way, your team may also have to buy certain items (called retrievables) to prove you were at a location, or to be used later in the rallye.

You will have opportunities along the route and at the end (while Ed is adding up the scores) to eat and drink, so bring extra funds for this. You will also have an opportunity to see some of the many interesting sites in the city!

The Full Moon Rallye began back on November 16, 1986. The winners get their names engraved on the cup, which they keep until the next rallye. In addition, the top three teams get medallions for their meritorious efforts. This time it could be you!
