Maryhill Loops Rally
July 30, 2016 - July 31, 2016
Join us for our 6th Annual Maryhill Loops Rally!
Each day will accommodate approximately 20 drivers and will cost $75, which includes a lunch.
Registrants are initially limited to choosing either Saturday or Sunday, but may have the opportunity to register for both if space is still available one week prior to the event.
Cars are divided into groups of ten (two groups per day). Each car goes uphill only after the previous car passes the halfway mark. All cars drive downhill in a slow convoy. Special arrangements may be made for photo/video chase vehicles, but only after participants have had their fun.
Participants can register for Saturday or Sunday. We also have plenty of opportunities to volunteer for this event, including staffing checkpoints along the road, helping with lunch, preparing the course, and cleaning up at the end of the event.
The rally starts each morning with a photo session at the Stonehenge War Memorial around 8 AM.
Maryhill Loops Road is located in a desolate, wind-swept area with no restaurants, no facilities (porta-potty available), and few shade trees. Bring shade tents (the club will have a couple), sunblock, and lots of food and water. The club will host a Subway Giant Sub, chips, cookies, and some beverages, but please be prepared with your own snacks as well.
Lastly, the club will organize a no-host dinner on Saturday night at the Clock Tower Ales Restaurant and Brew Pub in The Dalles, OR. We will have a private room and please bring cash as we will need to pay as a group on a single tab.
Q. Are non-BMW cars allowed at this event?
A. Yes! Only requirement is you must be a current BMW CCA member.
Q. How many times can you drive up in a day?
A. We’ve never actually kept track of that, but you probably get a run about every 45 minutes. Time flies throughout the day and you definitely get your share of turns. Often towards the end of the day we have fewer drivers going up, which then gives you the chance to do back-to-back runs or at the very least quicker turnaround times between the groups.
