Cobourg, April 29th, 2017 – A good turnout for the 2017 edition of the PMSC Spring Run Off Rally on Saturday.   Sixteen entries including two teams from Michigan and one entry with a German visitor in a lovely VW Westphaila (with German license plates).

Gary Neil and Murray Dammeier  of KWRC clocked in second while Gord Olmstead and Phil Hooper of KWRC finished third.   PMSC entry Chris Johnson and his navi, Brandon Pace of KWRC wound up  sixth after missing the sixth checkpoint on-route.
