The 2019 100 Acre Wood Rally is poised to be one of the biggest yet! This year we have joined forced with American Rally Association as part of their national series, and expect this to bring some big name teams, many entries and a lot of spectators. As such, we will need more help than ever! But to clarify some confusion, the organizing committee is essentially the same group is has been and this event is managed by the 100AW Performance Rally Group as it has always been.
You should register to help us at this event at: www.rallymasterpro.com/workers/?group=6
We are also trying something new in our volunteer efforts, in that is we have partnered with a few enthusiast groups to man entire stages by recruiting helpers that can work together as a team on a given stage. You might have seen information from Gambler 500, but we have also enlisted the assistance of Midwest Jeepthing, Mid-Mo Subies, and the St Louis BMW Car Club. If you are part of one of these organizations, you still need to register on RallyMasterPro.com, but in the notes please mention you are part of that group. I will be working closely with the coordinators from these groups to make sure you should be with them and get you an assignment with that group. Coordinators are:
Gambler 500: Drew Teghtmeyer
Midwest Jeepthing: Tommy Davis
Mid-Mo Subies: Matt Jones
BMW CCA: Kelsey Stephens
I’m going to try to post some better information that we can all link to of the various positions we usually need, what they entail and which we have the most need for, and then we can share that link, stay tuned for that.
In the meantime, register, tell your friends, and let’s assemble a great team to put together a great event in 2019!
For those in that need a rally fix while awaiting 100aw to return in March, we have the Show-Me Rally in a few weeks. It is held on Saturday, October 6th, and is a one day rally in Washington County, MO (i.e., Potosi, MO area). While this is a single-day, smaller/regional rally, it is also part of the Rally-America National Championship. There are currently 32 cars registered to compete, and this is a record for this event! Watch the links below for more information on the competitors, the schedules and spectating opportunities. Or better yet…… sign up to volunteer and help the rally!
Rally in the 100 Acre Wood offers many opportunities for spectators to interact with the drivers & crew, watch the cars drive the stages, and see the crew make repairs to their cars in the service area. All spectator locations are free of charge and no tickets are needed.
As always, parking is a problem on the forest’s narrow roads. Please do not double-park and block these roads. All cars must park on the same side of the road. We must keep one side of the road clear and open for traffic. This is used as an access route for emergency vehicles.
Please follow the marshal’s directions when parking your car and please respect the Spectator Control Marshals. They work very long hours to ensure your safety and viewing enjoyment.
Printed spectator maps will be available in the Salem & Steelville newspapers a few days before the rally. Or visit the Rally America information booth at the Parc Expose’ on Friday and Saturday to pick up your free copy of the spectator guide.
Rally in the 100 Acre Wood could not be the event it is today with 60 entries and hundreds of volunteers without our loyal supporters:
This year we want to especially thank our friends at Gorilla Off Road Company who have consistently found ways to support our workers.
And ready in the background is are the medical professionals at Salem Memorial District Hospital….watching over all of us. Thank you so much.
VOLUNTEER registration is now open. Please register at http://www.rallymasterpro.com/workers/?group=6
Each year, we rely on around 300 volunteers to make this event possible. Those workers perform as course marshals, start/finish workers, spectator marshals, communications (ham radio) operators, medical professionals and sweep/recovery people. Please consider volunteering and getting a front row seat to the racing action!
If you can’t work both days, please considering working at least one. We actually usually need more help on Saturday than Friday. When you register, it will automatically check both days, just review that and make sure it reflects what day(s) you can help.
