Trailered unlicensed off road vehicles could therefore violate motor vehicle laws when returning to the start. Be sure to consider this if you intend to drive an unlicensed off road vehicle.

TRR Trivia – July 2019

By Christy Howe
Last month’s trivia question was presented by Ray C.

Ray posed the question: Which vehicle nickname or license plate belongs to which person/vehicle in the club?
6. AD0TT

Adam M
1. Adam M

Gail S
2. Gail S

Mike and Caroline M
3. Mike and Caroline M

Don and Karen L
4. Don and Karen L

Vic W and Debbie T
5. Vic W and Debbie T

Larry and Paulette M
6. Larry and Paulette M

Bill B
7. Bill B (deceased)

With several possibilities for correct answers, almost everyone who turned in a paper scored at least one point.
Point totals from the seven trivia questions came to:
5 points – Adam M, Vic W, Debbie T, Larry M, Paula K
4 points – Richard H, Christy H
3 points – Gordy H, Greg B, Mike M, Roger B
2 points – Matt S, Mike C, Linda G, Gary B
1 point – Erin B, Carolanne S, Lynn C

Congratulations to Paula K, who takes the lead for 2019 with 9 points. Paula is followed by Vic W with 8, and Adam M and Christy H are tied for third place with 7 points each. There are many more people with points, so if you want to know your current total at any time, just ask the author.

This month’s trivia question will be brought to you by Mike C.
