By Scott Suits - On Saturday September 23, 2017, twelve cars from the Tampa Bay Section competed in the 2017 Drive for Hope Road Rally. The cars, each with a driver and the all important navigator, started in Tarpon Springs. The course had right, left, and “U” turns leading them over mostly back roads thru Holiday, New Port Richey, and Port Richey. While staying on course,the teams had to find the answers to seventeen clues that were on signs and mail boxes along the route. It took about two hours (for most); the rally ended at the German Restaurant in Holiday. (…that is THE German Restaurant, not A German Restaurant). Owned and operated by Uwe and Dagmar Kasper, the rally ended with authentic German food and traditional draft beer andwine. Entry fees totaled $300, and all checks were turned over to Hope Childrens’ Home in the name of the participant. Thank you ALL for your donations. Following are the rally teams in the order that they finished. The top three teams received certificates for their finishing position. Note the navigator for the fourth place team: Gabby Scrol is Bill’s 13-year-old daughter.
