PMSC to host Burnt River Rally Cross March 11th CANCELLED

WEATHER GODS STRIKE AGAIN

BURNT RIVER RALLY CROSS CANCELLED

Guys just came back from an inspection of planned course and unfortunately the weather Gods have struck again.

While the road was in really great condition. Snow banks High enough that should even handle warmer weather a couple of days next week.

Snow melt has started to run through and has taken out a major place on stage. Considerable additional rain and melt is expected next week which will add to the problem

So in consideration of entrants safety and preserving your vehicles we regretfully must pull the plug.

PMSC Treasurer will get reimbursements out to you ASAP over the next few days

We hate doing this but it is, we think, the correct thing to do.
