OK Northeastern Rally,

Ivan et. al. pulled of a very nice event that was both challenging and fun to run. It had very good spectating and dealt with serious events in a manner which as a competitor felt like anything was planned for.

Therefore I urge everyone who is part of our sport regionally & nationally to support what is sure to be a great event. The area is beautiful, the people want us there, and it?s about racing.

Official Bulletin 1

9/22/2004 ? Change of Route:
On Saturday, September 18, 2004, five and a half inches of rain fell on Sullivan County, New York. This resulted in a countywide state of emergency. Several special stage roads and bridges were washed away and may not be repaired until next year.
We have been able to secure an alternative route thanks to outstanding cooperation by the officials of the Town of Tusten and the management of Boy Scouts of America Ten Mile River Reservation.
The new route will be slightly longer with twelve special stages. Eight stages of 52 miles in length will be on gravel. The remaining four stages of 13 miles will be on tarmac. The crews will have the opportunity to change tires for tarmac stages. Tarmac stages will contain retarders in the form of chicanes for added safety. All special stages will be different from special stages used by Rally New York in April 2004.
This means that the event itinerary, the time schedule, course and spectator maps and supplemental regulations, published on www.RallyNewYork.com on September 20, and the route book, all completed by September 16, must now be redone. This work will continue during the upcoming weeks and updates will be published on www.RallyNewYork.com as they become available.

I want express my respect and appreciation to you and your team for taking on this task to re-do your event on such short notice. This is an impressive thing to do for so many people, espeically when it must be so tempting to throw in the towel after such a disaster. Rally New York and NASA just took another big step up in my book. Duffy and I were changing plans to come after the BRS postponement; now we are absolutely obligated to come to demonstrate our support! Please pass along our 'thanks' to the munucipalities involved; I think it's fair to say this 'thanks' comes from the whole rally community.

Many thanks,
Mark B.
