more scenic in nature, but off the beaten path. Please contact Pamela at firstname.lastname@example.org.
ABFM Sunday Fun Rallye
This year's Time Speed Distance rally will twist and turn car, navigator and driver throughout Portland's stunning urban sprawl. Participants will experience all the variety that Portland has to offer in public parks from a historic viewpoint as well as a family friendly perspective. Because Portland is a city known for its bridges, we feel compelled to allow you to see the beautiful architecture of two of them during our rally! We even have a volcano on route! Participants will find themselves cleverly navigating little known scenic roads all within the Portland city limits. The tour will be simple enough for our novice diver/navgators and well planned enough to intrigue the advanced native Portland teams. We look forward to a great group taking in the sights, sounds and smells of what makes Portland a great city to live in. Awards for winning driver and navigator who take First, Second and Third Place positions. See schedule page for details.
