What is a Road Rally? “First, you need a driver and at least one navigator,” said Kara Schäpperle, a committee member. “Everyone will get a list of questions and follow the route by answering each question, leading us to our destination where we’ll enjoy some lunch and award the prizes. It’s all meant to be a fun day to get everyone excited about the show in August.”
