Great Valley Rally goes this Saturday, July 23

Enter a team by July 20 and help raise funds for Filberg Heritage Lodge and Park Association

How quick can you think in order to solve clues, complete tasks and navigate your way through a series of check stops in the Comox Valley?  Grab three or four friends or colleagues and put in a team for CARSTAR’s Great Valley Rally presented by the Comox Valley Chamber which will take place on July 23.

The Great Valley Rally was started in 2014 as a way to bring the communities of the Comox Valley together and raise money for local community associations.  In 2014, proceeds from the event went towards the Cumberland Forest Society and in 2015, proceeds benefitted the Courtenay Mural Project.  This year, the Filberg Heritage Lodge and Park Association will be the fundraising recipient.

There are two team options: As a bicycle team or as a car team, each with either four or five members.  The theme for this year’s race is ‘Musical Icons Throughout the Decades.’ Costumes are encouraged so consider coming to the rally as KISS, One Direction, the Supremes or as your favourite musical icon!

The rally starts in Cumberland at Village Square and finishes in Comox at the Filberg Park with an afternoon of music by DJ Adil Amlani and a complimentary barbecue for the participants where prizes will be awarded for the best teams.

Register your rockin’ team  by July 20 for your chance of fame, glory and prizes: Go to greatvalleyrally.com and follow the links.  Thanks to our media sponsors 97.3 the Eagle, Comox Valley Record, all the check stop businesses, and our title sponsor: CARSTAR Collison and Glass Service Specialists in the Comox Valley: tcvalleycollision.ca.
