The Old Maltese

Notice: We have decided
that this winter's
St. Valentine's Day Massacre
will be our last competition.

The Old Maltese is fine;
60 years seems to be a good time
to say howdy and adieu.


Welcome to the Official Website
of The Old Maltese!

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

for 60 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 38 years: the semi-annual (spring and late autumn) Almaniac - a trivia competition, quite different from our map-based competitions

for 26 years: the annual Independence Day Fireworks map rally - a summertime shorter version of the big St. Valentine's Day Massacre
