From the PCRC:

The organizers have established Saturday and Sunday, October 21 and 22, as the dates for the 2017 Northwest Challenge.

The event will be held on the east side of the Washington Cascades, south of Interstate 90, although the specific location remains to be determined.

The event will be run on a point-to-point basis. It will focus more on cooperative activity, dealing with conditions as they are encountered, and less on competition among participants. It will, however, be a challenge. Participants should have prior off-road driving experience, and vehicles need to be sound, reliable, and suitably equipped.

Additional information on specific location, starting time, and other details will be provided when determined.

Who from the lower mainland is planning on attending this NW Challenge? I was thinking about it and wouldn't mind convoying down there.

Regards,
