Straight Eights Annual Road Rally 2012

Continuing a tradition begun in 2010, the Straights will hold its third Road Rally in May, and we are going west!

Join your car loving buddies and take a scenic tour of Maryland and Virginia with the Straight Eights. We plan to head out at 9:00 am on May 12 from a starting point near Potomac, MD.

This year the Road Rally is going to be a little bit different as we've designed it to be a driving experience with one stop halfway to stretch our legs rather than do a scavenger hunt. A link to the route will be provided to all the participants prior to the event, so they can print it out and not get lost.

From Potomac, we'll be taking those winding roads that our cars were meant to coast through Furnace Ford, MD, then cross over the Potomac River at Point of Rocks, and head to our final destination, Middleburg, VA.

Our drive will be just under 70 miles and should take a little over two hours to complete. Once we're in Middleburg, participants will be on their own to shop (some nice antique shops), dine (home to the oldest pub), and meander through the streets of this quaint little town of 600. There is a municipal lot and street parking throughout the downtown area. Remember to bring quarters for the meters (both street and municipal – one per hour) because Park Mobile is not an option!

If you plan to participate, email, so we know whom to expect at the starting point.

Go to for additional information on Middleburg, VA. From this link you can get a map of the downtown area, read about their history, and view their calendar of events.
