Wayne McDonald and his wife, Barb, are pictured ready to set out on the Frontier Barn Quilt Trail Road Rally on Saturday, Oct. 6 at the Fulton County Fair Grounds. MacDonald chose to drive his 1927 Springfield Rolls Royce Phantom I for the 59-mile road rally that featured 37 barn quilts and numerous bucolic scenes throughout the county. The Frontier Barn Quilt Trail and the Susquehanna Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) held the first Frontier Barn Quilt Trail Road Rally Saturday, October 6. Starting at the Fulton County fairgrounds, a mix of Fulton County car enthusiasts and SCCA members began the 59-mile scavenger hunt. The drive featured 37 of Fulton County’s 200-plus barn quilts and five checkpoints. Each team consisted of a driver and a navigator to wind through the scenic route in order to find the answers to 16 questions. Bonus points could also be earned for identifying mileage or the color of the building that a key barn quilt was found on. The rally was not based on speed, but the total number points accrued from the key barn quilts found. Drivers were encouraged to take their time to enjoy the bucolic views of Fulton County.

Lisa Leathery, SCCA and Lisa Johnston, The Frontier Barn Quilt Trail, worked together to organize the 15 drivers that came from both Pennsylvania and Maryland. Drivers could receive prizes for first ($20 Sheetz gift card) and second place (Frontier Barn Quilt Trail T-shirt) in their classes. The winners are as follows:
