Re: Rallye Golf? -Reply

As I plainly said in my post, referring to 1988 as the year for the
Rallye......the year 1988 was strictly in regards to the U.S., and I would
fully suspect they were much earlier in Europe.  1988 was when they hit the
U.S.   just wanted to explain where I came up with the year 1988  :)
