Eh, all aids are available to us Turkeys. Besides, even the best Nav can't find a third of those clues.
I will say that I'm super impressed by all the teams, and everyone kept going and finished! I had intended to score each leg separately but the re-formatted instructions didn't emphasize that.
There were some super tough signs to spot, and I'll be honest there were 3 or 4 'traps' that caused nearly everyone trouble (and I blame myself there!), yet others that I thought would be harder to see didn't cause anyone to miss them.
Then there was the infamous BIG DEAD TREE, which I thought would be easy pickings for all!
If there's any interest, I'd like to consider running a 'Rally School' in February or March with an agenda like this:
- 0:45 Team meeting / Instruction review / Rally basics / Timing methods (early or late?) and Allowances
- 0:45 KISS Tour Rally - 1 or 2 leg, short and simple morning rally to get some practice on what was covered
- 1:00 Lunch break - Food and group review of KISS Rally / Timing
- 2:00 MTSS Tour Rally - 3 to 5 short leg Tour & Course Rally
Tour Rallys give precise directions, speeds and mileage so this isn't about finding the right way, it's about being touring the countryside, and arriving on-time at the checkpoint.
Course Rallys generally use the same instructions as Tours, but often they are more similar to Turkey Rally directions (with speed change instructions), so this is about finding the right course AND being on-time.
