This year’s Fun Rally was held on October 29th where once again the weather gods were in our favor as there was a good rain storm the previous day. The morning fog cleared just in time for the start, sunshine and warmer temperatures prevailed for the rest of the day. I’m inclined to think that starting this Rally in front of Total Wine off of South Virginia has something to do with this! My Wine Tour buddies would agree.

This year’s rally required loyal participants to collect items from a grocery list. Items were to be collected from specific locations and once all the items were purchased, participants had to make their way to the Evelyn Mount Community Center where they were collected for donation to Evelyn Mount’s Outreach Program.  Since arriving in Reno in 1976, Evelyn Mount has provided holiday meals to thousands of Reno and Sparks families through the Community Outreach Food Drive she and her late husband founded. This wonderful program accepts food and gift cards from local grocery stores.

A tiny clue in the instructions directed participants to go north for the Grocery Outlet store. Those that headed north first were able to get ahead of the line as it were…..  The first three cars arriving at the community center were awarded prizes. Zachary Harding and his partner arrived first, Ron Nicasio and his navigator arrived in second place (it was almost a photo finish), Ron and Sharon Rachow came in third place thanks to Sharon’s expert shopping skills which was a marked improvement from last year’s last place!

Special thanks to Pat and Joann McGoff, and Fred Watson for their assistance in arranging a picnic at the ArrowCreek Recreation Center – a wonderful facility and we had some more fun…..I’m bringing more wine next time!!!!
