Road Rally! June 28th - Register Now

The Venturing road rally is coming up on June 28th, beginning at 1pm. This year we will be staging the rally in Iowa. The starting point is yet to be determined but we will be ending near Maquoketa. The activities after the rally will be caving at Maquoketa Caves, eating delicious BBQ, and going to see an actual drive in movie.

Registration info can be found HERE
Registration must be in to the council office by June 20th

If you haven't been to a road rally before it is a timed driving event from point to point. Your crew should form teams of up to four people, with one of those being an adult, and at least one being a licensed driver. You will explore the countryside of Iowa looking for your points. Teams gain or lose points by being on time and by answering questions at those points. If you're caught speeding you lose all your points for that stage.

If you can't find enough people to form a team please contact Jon Terry ( or myself and we'll get you set up. We don't want anyone to miss out.
