Whack Your Turkey Rally

2017 Whack Your Turkey Rally

Attention all Rallyists and want to be Rallyists! The annual NJBMW CCA Whack Your Turkey Rally will be on Sunday, November 19th. This year’s starting point will be at the Wal-Mart located at 3576 US Highway 22 west, Whitehouse Station, NJ 08889. Registration will open at 8:30 am with a drivers meeting at 9:00, 1st car off shortly thereafter. All proceeds from the Rally will benefit the food bank of NORWESCAP (www.norwescap.org)

What is needed to attend the Rally? You would just need some basic things like a car, truck or SAV, most of a tank of gas, a clip board and some pens or pencils. Each vehicle or team will be given a set of driving instructions with questions that can be answered along the route in a set amount of time. The drive is through scenic parts of NJ on back roads and ends at a restaurant where everyone can review the answers. The directions are designed so you should not get lost.

There will be 2 classes of competition: Driver/Navigator- 2 people in the car and Family/Fun for cars with more than 2 people. Only cars in the Driver/Navigator class are eligible for NJBMW CCA Championship points. As always, children are welcome to attend however they will need a minor waiver form signed by a parent or guardian. The form can be downloaded beforehand from the NJ BMW Chapter website on the Forms subsection. There will also be forms onsite at registration.

You can register by sending an e-mail to rallymaster@njbmwcca.org with WYT in the subject line. Although pre-registering is not required, it will help in having the ending point properly staffed. Please include your name as well as the others on your team and what class you are competing in along with a return contact e-mail. Be sure to bring your BMW Club membership card with you.

As mentioned above, the rally is a benefit for NORWESCAP. Among the many programs of NORWESCAP is their food bank which helps in the distribution of more than 2 million pounds of food annually to over 120 pantries, shelters, soup kitchens, senior centers and on-site feeding programs in Sussex, Warren, and Hunterdon Counties. The entry fee for the Rally is set at $25 however more would be gladly accepted for this great benefit. Last year’s donation to the food bank was a great success; we hope to be able to repeat it.
