The Old Maltese

Welcome to the Official Website

[formerly, before spring 2019, the site was at home.earthlink.net/~oldmaltese]
--------------------------------------------------------------------
You've found the right place for map-based and trivia-based competitions of challenge and guile:

for 58 years: the annual St. Valentine's Day Massacre - a wintertime coast-to-coast competitive automobile rally all on maps

for 36 years: the annual Great Maltese Circumglobal Trophy Dash - an early autumn round-the-world map rally

for 37 years: the semi-annual (spring and late autumn) Almaniac - a trivia competition, quite different from our map-based competitions

for 25 years: the annual Independence Day Fireworks map rally - a summertime shorter version of the big St. Valentine's Day Massacre
