Our 2020 Fall Rally was held Saturday October 3rd, 2020.  The rally was a success with twenty-four people and nine cars signing up including one car with visitors from a New Jersey Section of the Mercedes Club. The rally started with an optional breakfast at the Coopersburg Diner followed by the twenty-four and a half mile scenic Saucon Valley drive during which the correct route  had to be followed while searching for the correct answers to twenty questions concerning things located along the route.The rally ended at the Hellertown Diner in Hellertown PA. where participants had lunch while sharing their experiences following the route, locating the correct answers to questions, and attempting to justify how they arrived at incorrect ones.This year first place winners were John & Marina Bleimaier from the New Jersey Section in car number one who edged out Randy & Elizabeth Shayler, second place winners by ten points.  Car number five won third place with Arlene and Shelley Frailey who were just five points behind second place.The weather co-operated with a beautiful sunny fall day, perfect for a safe day on the road during the Covid-19 crisis.  The only time masks and social distancing was violated was a moment after the rally outside for a photograph.Photo & article By Rally Master Ron Gabel
