I didn't realize until recently that the oldest driving competition in the world is held so nearby, in Pittsford, NY. Walnut Hill is holding its 41st annual driving competition, and this esteemed event is supposed to be quite a show, and definitely worth the trip as a spectator, so think about it for this weekend.
