Jim and I are working towards running our delayed ASCC regional, from Jan/Feb this year, in early Nov.

We do have some things to work out, but as it stands now, Sat 9th NOV will be the day.

Car 0 time will be 30min earlier, so 1630hrs (4:30pm) with registration opening at 1500hrs.

Start will be in Elmsdale. This will be a night Navex rally.

Most other details will be the same as before, with the exception that we do not expect much snow. I will have full sup regs for Gord to disseminate soon.
