Road Rally in the Valley

August 4, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 1:00 pm

On Sunday, August 4, 2019, the Luzerne County Historical Society presents a new event, the inaugural “Road Rally in the Valley”! What’s a road rally? A fun scavenger hunt combined with a road race! It’s a battle of mind and machine! Teams are not racing each other or the clock, but are instead attempting to complete the hunt in the least mileage with the maximum correct answers. Check-in opens at noon; the rally starts at 1 p.m. and the awards ceremony is at 4:30 p.m. Registration is $30 per carload for LCHS members and $40 per carload for nonmembers.


Teams will begin at Wilkes University Parking #5 (behind the Henry Student Center with entrances on South River and South Franklin Streets, Wilkes-Barre), where they will receive a book of site clues. Each site clue, when decoded, leads to a historic site in the Wyoming Valley. Teams drive to the location and snap a photo of themselves at the site with The Citizens’ Voice (provided – special thanks to our media sponsor, The Citizens’ Voice!). Upon completing the clues, teams return to the finish line at III Guys Pizza, 51 South Wyoming Avenue, Edwardsville.  This is not a timed event.  The team with the most correctly decoded clues in the lowest mileage is the winner!


Prizes will also be awarded for 2nd and 3rd place per class as well as for the Oldest Vehicle and Most Team Spirit. Enjoy great food and music by Bret Alexander at III Guys. The rally is open to all Pennsylvania road legal vehicles of any age, make or model, including motorcycles. Vehicles will be divided into two classes: Vintage (1900-1979) and Modern (1980-present).  Driver T-shirts and swag bags for the first 100 registered carloads!


For more information, or to register a team, call 570-823-6244 ext. 3 or email reservations@luzernehistory.org.
