The Braille Rallye 2013!

Join SoCal Smarties in support of The Braille Institute Youth Programs by participating in the Braille Rallye 2013! This is a 40 mile course through the streets of Los Angeles, featuring driving teams which consist of you, the driver and a visually impaired navigator. Your navigator will read to you, as you drive, the course directions which are written in braille.This is a very rewarding day long event. Prizes are given out for the best times. Participants include other car clubs, the CHP, and media celebrities. The race culminates with an awards ceremony and lunch. This is an awesome event and I encourage everyone to participate. There is a $15 registration fee to be paid on the day of the rallye. The fee includes a commemorative T-shirt for your navigator. Additional shirts may be purchased for $10 each. You must register in advance to participate in the rallye. The deadline to get your registration in is July 15th. I posted the registration form and the information sheet in the files section. In the menu above click "more" then "files". See you on rallye day!

    SoCal Smarties did very well at the Braille Rallye this year! Everyone had very impressive finish times. Li Lin, who was a first time rallyer won best time with an alumni navigator and yours truly won 2nd place with a large print navigator! A great time was had by all! I hope we can get a few more smarties participating next year!

    If you want to bring a guest, they will have to serve as a volunteer at the event because your extra seat will be taken by your navigator.
