The Wishbone Alley Gazette

Oregon Trail (60% National)
52 teams started, something like 32 finished. No injuries. Nice event.
Not much interest shown by RASC members.

April Friday Nighter
Tom Palidar and the Torque Steerers club did a rather long (70 miles?) rally out near North Bend/Snoqualmie. Tom said he was pleased that his little traps caught up a few complacent teams. He also "broke in" 6 novice teams.
The Simons¹ won SOP; Rod and Phillis Johnson took 3rd. Steve Willey/Eric Horst garnered 3rd Unlimited/9th O¹erall in the Rover

June Club rallys
Simpson has approved use of it¹s roads, and the June 10/11 weekend returns to familiar roads.
What with all the RASC folks going on to other activities, this may be the first local stage rally in decades without a "RASC Crew".

Alcan 2002
Jerry is about to post entry forms and details on the 2002 Alcan summer event. The route will be Seattle, Quesnel, Hyder, Skagway, Yellowknife, Dawson Creek, Jasper.

The Madison House Retirement Community has asked RASC to participate in their Open House and Classic Car Show. This is the 4th invite in as many years.

The event is located at 12215 NE 128th St, Kirkland.
