On Saturday, Dec. 1st the "Dust Off The Cobwebs" TSD will do just that.
Begins at Charlie Riedles Restaurant in Canandaigua, NY. (3140 Townline Rd. -- intersection of State Routes 5 & 20 West and County Road #10)
Ends at MacGregor's, 759 South Main St., Canandaigua, NY (good food and quite a large number of beers on tap.
Registration from 2:45 - 3:45 pm
Novice school at 3:15
Drivers' meeting at 3:45
First car off at 4:01
First car should finish at about 10:30 pm.
About 130 miles long. A large percentage of the roads in this series are unpaved (varies from rally to rally).
SCCA Members - $35/car; non-members $40/car.
Classes: Equipped, Limited, Stock, and Novice.
Three speed groups. All speeds are within the legal limtis of NY State. The challenge is to stay on time and NOT drive over your skills and equipment.
What do you need? A licensed driver plus at least one other passenger/navigator, an insured and street legal vehicle, a tow strap, and 90 minutes worth of road flares or at least one DOT triangle. Snow tires are highly recommended for the series as "all season" tires might get you limited to a different speed group.
This is a precursor to the SCCA Finger Lakes Region Winter Rally Series.

For the novices, Time/Speed/Distance rallies are run like a railroad -- you get points for showing up at unknown checkpoints if you are either early or late. Low score wins. The object is NOT to go as fast as you can but to stay on time at given speeds. You can learn more about TSD road rallies at the FLR-SCCA website.
For those who do not know this series dates back several decades and is put on by a large part of the folks who are responsible for STPR. That's enough of the bona fides but it's a good thing to have brisk speed TSD's that run on Saturday nights during the winter months.
That is unless ye prefer sitting on yer bum, ya cheese eating panty waists. Willie laughs at ye.
