About The Event

This Spring Thing drive is a gimmick drive with clues to find along the route. The ones with the most correct answers to the clues wins! This event is fun and should be low-stress.

There will also be the option to drive this as a timed Rally (JCNA sanctioned event). The JCNA event will use the same route as the Spring Thing gimmick rally, but adds a Time-Speed-Distance (TSD) competition at posted speed limits.

Teams strive to maintain a predetermined time between a handful of checkpoints with penalty points deducted for arriving early or late at the checkpoints. In addition to the Seattle Jaguar Club awards, the scores of top three teams are entered in Northwest Region and North American competitions. As just the second JCNA rally in more than a decade, we will keep this event simple to see if people want more rallies in the future.

There will be trophies for both events awarded at lunch.

Meet at 10:30 am on Sunday, 5/5/24 in the Ken’s Korner Red Apple Parking Lot in Clinton, WA, just up from the Mukilteo/Clinton Ferry Terminal (11042 WA-525, Ste 116 Clinton, WA 98236). There is a bagel/coffee shop in the same mall.

Drive will start at 11:00 am and will take you on a tour of some of the most scenic roads on the island. We will start in Clinton, and circle Whidbey, looking for clues while enjoying the beautiful water, open space and mountain views.

We will end up in Freeland, at China City Restaurant for lunch (1804 Scott Rd Freeland, WA 98249) (assuming their remodel is complete), or another casual place on the Whidbey side of the ferry.

The drive will take about 2-1/2 hours, maybe 3 hours with rest stops.
