Just a heads-up that I plan to broadcast some Periscope livestreams from the IBR start, checkpoints, and finish. It won't be on any particular schedule - I'll be working the rally and that, of course, comes first But I'd like to start them this Friday or Saturday and do them as time permits through the start on Monday the 17th. I also plan to do the same at the checkpoints and finish.

For those unfamiliar with Periscope, it's a free iPhone and Android app to broadcast live streams. You can watch them live, and they will also be available on the Web post-broadcast. I will provide instructions later in the week on how to access them.

Instructions for accessing the Periscope videos I hope to produce:

If you have the Periscope app:

Open the app
Touch the "people" icon on the bottom of the screen
Touch the "Find" icon (the magnifying glass) at the top of the screen
Touch "Broadcasts"
Search for "IBR 2019"

You should then see a list of videos, both live (if there is a live broadcast) and previously recorded.

If you don't have the app, you can see them on the Web:


Take the following link:

As I mentioned earlier, I plan to start streaming on Friday, June 14th (All times are local!), but beyond that, no set schedule.

Thanks Ira. for this year's new way of showing us here at home on the couch they brave have it before the rally begins. This wonderful reading from John Harrison about what is happening behind the scenes, and of course all of you at the IBR Rally Staff, all of this now starts this year's event in the LD world. Look forward to every day getting my portion of driving pleasure catered for in my corner of the world as well as in my couch. Run sensibly and "Be careful out there" Best regards Dan
