Sunrise to Sunset Rally 2023

Our 2023 Sunrise to Sunset Gimmick Rally is in the books! 125 participants, including fifty-one, two person teams of drivers and navigators from eight different regions from across Florida participated in the 2023 Rally held on March 24-25.

Organized by the Space Coast Region and sponsored by the Porsche Melbourne Dealership, the rally started with oceanfront sunrise breakfast in Melbourne and ended with a waterfront sunset dinner in Bradenton. The whole event was kicked off with a Blue Skies and Green Lights Dinner and Party at Porsche Melbourne.

The drive included thirty-five “Jeopardy style” answers along the route for which the proper questions were to be determined. Once the results were scored, the Space Coast Region dominated the award ceremonies and retained the coveted Sun Chaser Trophy given to region with the highest scores.

Thank you to the Rally Master, Brian Reinert and his Evil Apprentices, David O’Neal and Mary Kirby, for a fun and fabulous event. Here is the scoop and the photo album link:
