No Alibi 2013 was a 500-mile, two-day rally that explored Eastern Washington's beautiful scenery, pleasant weather and endless roads. This year it seemed like we had a lot more green than prior years, sometimes in a very dramatic fashion. The views coming down Jasper Mountain and over Skyrocket were particularly striking this year.
Saturday night featured a social gathering with a top-notch BBQ dinner hosted by The Grillmaster. We provided custom sandwich lunches on Saturday as well as snacks and drinks at the finish. No Alibi 2013 is Round 2 of the Pacific Coast Challenge rally series.

Friday/Saturday Night Accommodations: We have arranged a block of rooms at the Red Lion Hotel Columbia Center in Kennewick, WA. The block rate is $99.95 plus taxes, and you must mention "Rainier Auto Sports" when you make your reservation to get this rate. This block will be released after May 5, after which rooms won't be guaranteed available, so don't wait! Call 1-800-733-5466 or 509-783-0611 and ask to speak to the KENNEWICK front desk to make a reservation. Use the block code RAIN0531 to get the rate. This can be done via their online reservation system as well with that code. We recommend making reservations early at any hotel option in the area as options quickly are filled as summer begins in the TriCities.
Friday Night Social: This informal and unofficial meet-up will take place at the 3 Margaritas restaurant on Friday evening. It's not too far from the Red Lion, at 6505 W Canal Dr. in Kennewick. The Rallymaster and some of the workers are going to try and be there around 6:30 pm; come join us.
Saturday lunch: Lunch will be provided on Saturday; you will be asked to indicate your choices before the start, make sure to provide at least one valid email address when you register in order to get the form to place your order. Late entries may end up with a generic lunch. This option is included in your entry fee.
Saturday Night Social: The traditional No Alibi banquet dinner on Saturday is scheduled. We will be hosted by the Grillmaster who provided the bbq meal at last year's finish location. Seating will be outdoors and the weather should be fine. No bar will be available, you'll have to BYOB, options will be indicated in the route book. Soft drinks and water will be provided. If there are special dietary needs, please contact the Rallymaster ASAP. The banquet dinner is optional, and is an additional $20 per person which should be paid at registration time to guarantee a spot. This banquet is a great opportunity to relax, recount the day, tell old lies or make up new ones. Don't miss it!
Sunday Snacks: At the finish in Keewaydin Park, we'll have a number of snack and beverage options to keep you occupied before awards and fuel yourselves for the journey home. This is included in your entry fee.
