Event: Annie & Steve Norman Classic Car Rally

Annie and Steve Norman were participants on the first Spring Thaw Adventure in 2009 in their Hudson Commodore. We received this email with info about their charity rally and thought we’d pass it along. This looks like a fun event with a competitive navigational TSD rally element.

Announcing the 18th Annual Annie & Steve Norman Classic Car Rally.

This year it is being held from the Semiahmoo Resort just outside Blaine Wa.

The dates are: June 17 – June 20, 2010

This is a Time-Speed-Distance (TSD) event.  It is primarily open to Classic (Pre 1977) cars however, there is class for Contemporary (1977 & up) sporting cars.   It helps raise money for the Nonprofit College Planning Network which assists students achieve academic goals. This will be the 18th annual running of the rally and to date, the rally has raised over $180,000.

This is a wonderful annual event.  Each year it is held at a relaxing venue in the Northwest.  If you are a first timer to this event you will find everyone friendly and will look forward to attending again.  During the day, this event annually offers scenic roads with safe but challenging competition for teams.  During the evening everyone relaxes and socializes.  Some may wish to talk cars, some may wish to check out the spa.


For those who want to attend this event but don’t yet have a team (1 driver, 1 navigator); the rallymaster may be able to pair you up with others that contact him with the same request.

Please feel free to contact Doug Breithaupt (Rallymaster) if you are considering attending this year or even for future years.

    I participated in the Annie & Steve Classic Car Rally last year when it was on Vancouver Island. It was an awesome event & I would recommend it to anyone who likes a little competition. It is a great beginners rally but also challenges the seasoned participants.
    We travelled some of the most beautiful roads on the island in some awesome classic cars along with great people. It was a great time for all
    Last year we drove a heavily modified 1959 Mercedes 190SL convertible (hotrod) and this year we will be in the black 1965 Beaumont SD convertible we had at the Spring Thaw.

    I’ve participated in this rally several times over the years. GREAT group of people and always interesting cars. Doug puts on a great event: The food is good, locations wonderful, and the rallying is challenging and fun. Best of all he always has at least one tour of a notable car collection along the way.

    I highly recommend this event!
