A brief history of the Northwest Challenge

In 1989 the first Northwest Challenge was held in Oregon, organized by Doug Shipman. The group of Land Rovers braved the wet weather and headed out into old snow conditions, which made for slow progress. Although there were no prizes for this wet run the Northwest Challenge has evolved over the last 25 years and has even been featured in Land Rover Owner, Land Rover Monthly and Land Rover International Magazines. The original organizers Gord ‘n Perrott (WA), Aart Van Der Star (BC) and Doug Shipman (OR) thought it would be best to share the load of putting on this event every year and thus the Northwest Challenge alternates host locations between Oregon, Washington and British Columbia. Since 1989 members of the Pacific Coast Rover Club and Rover-Landers of British Columbia have organized and participated in the Northwest Challenge. Dedicated Land Rover enthusiasts have come from as far as Vermont and S.F. California to participate.

Typically entry is accepted on a per team basis, although depending on what the organizer does, you could be assigned a teammate/truck when you arrive. A team consists of two Land Rovers with a minimum of two adult occupants per vehicle. Land Rovers must be licensed, insured and in good mechanical condition. A proper roll bar is required for all open and soft-top vehicles. Equipment carried, must be sufficient to see the team to and over all obstacles encountered, without the assistance of other participants.

In recent years it has been challenging to find enough volunteers and hard-core participants to pull off a challenge similar to the past, where most often the teams consisted of two vehicles, each with a driver and co-driver. The Challenge is evolving to included more technical and fun challenges, and participation by newer vehicles and competitors, rather than just a tough off-road event. With this, new life is being breathed in to a long-standing Land Rover event in the Pacific Northwest.

Waiting to hear back from possible co-drivers, seems to be poor timing for my usual suspects.

Hi Glen,

So not to give the teams entering any local knowledge advantage, we keep the actual location somewhat secret. It will be in the Upper Fraser Valley (Harrison area)
If you email me at roverlanders@shaw.ca I can pass on more volunteer info.

Cheers -Andy

PS We typically have Drivers looking for Co-Drivers and Co-Drivers looking for a Drivers, so post up here if you are one or the other and maybe we can pair you up!

Cheers
Andy

Hi Sam,

Yes, those NWC tabs just went down last week for some strange reason, we are working on getting them back up soon.

Basically this is what the tabs read;

Vehicle requirements all Land Rovers have to be a Mechanical Sound, Road Legal & insured. Any soft top vehicle does require a Roll Cage. A Winch is recommended but not mandatory.
Stock vehicles are welcome, but as always in an off-road challenge its always possible to have scratches and vehicle damage depending on the drivers skill and driving style (and some luck!).
We have not planned any Time Trial events in this years event to reduce the chances of vehicle damage and to make it safer for participants and volunteers.

Event rules Must be a Land Rover, Co-driver is required, complete the registration form, be onsite late afternoon on Friday and be available for Friday evening, all day Saturday & Sunday morning. A Drivers information package will be emailed to the team once entered. Points will be awarded for different stages and challenges throughout the weekend, The winner is the team with the most points at the end, awards will be given out after breakfast on Sunday morning.

Email us with any other questions roverlanders@shaw.ca

Just back from a trip to Washington State, I have a couple of calls out for a co-driver, if I do not then I will volunteer. I will know in a few days on how this plays out. Looking forward to a fun event!

Any chance of taking part without a co-driver? I assume that some stages would require two people to complete so likely not.

Yes, sorry according to the rules all teams must consist of a Driver and Co-Driver. Maybe post up that your looking for a co-driver, there has been others asking the same question.

Sam, Neil, sounds good, let us know when you know!

Looks like firewood is restricted the same as fruit for importation. We'll find some between the border and basecamp I'm sure.

Looking forward to some Land Rover off-road Fun this weekend!!

A few auxiliary items...

1. Thanks for the nice comments on the video guys!! I'm doing my best not to push Pieter and Leo too hard but keep them engaged in the Land Rover stuff. Someone's gotta help me finish some of my projects! :)

2. Is there an official photographer? Alloy+Grit asked if I could connect them with a photographer for another article like they did 3 years ago.

3. Is there opportunity for spectators to attend and see anything without major PITA for logistics?

Hi Don,

We will be getting the volunteers to take photos as they will be staged at the check points, plus Pamela will be taking the photos at Base Camp. These photos will be shared after the event.
The Challenge this year is not Spectator friendly as locations would be difficult to access and spectators would become a hazard trying to access the areas.

Only a few days to go, lets hope for some sunshine!!

So, My co-pilot is out with a shoulder injury. Now, I have to choose between my twin boys. Tough decisions!! :!:

So bring them both. Have one spot in front and the other behind. Then no one will know if you are coming or going..... :rolly:

I foolishly built a truck with only two seats or I just finished it a few years too soon!! :lol:

Another year and it won't matter. Pieter is planning to drive Tweety at next years challenge and I'd be the co-pilot!! :o

Finally unpacked the last of the wet gear and am sitting down to saver my Sasquatch stout beer. What a wonderful event put on with so much creativity and generousity of spirit. The Saturday night dinner was truly unbelievable and the weekend overall was just a joy. Thanks so much to all that had a hand in putting on, or participating in, NWC 2019!

Just arrived back in Calgary, 1836 km round trip but it was worth it. Great job putting on the NWC Roverlanders!

Everything was so good; from delicious dinner to big camp fire, spinning wheels in mud to Sasquatch hunt in the dark! Thank you so much for planning such a great event!

Its great to hear everyone had fun and enjoyed the NWC 2019 Sasquatch Hunt. We focused on the fun side for this years event and everyone who participated and volunteered did an amazing job in making this one a year to remember.
Congrats to Andrew and Richard, the Alberta / British Columbia team that took first place, it was a very tight finish and all 9 teams who took part should be proud :bounce:
I will post the result table below
Cheers
Andy

Outstanding weekend - a huge shoutout to all the volunteers who's hard work made this possible.

Andrew thanks for making the drive from Calgary, your previous experience at these type of events is the largest part of why we won. I enjoyed your company and time spent bouncing about in your 90.

It was great to see a wide variety of rovers competing as well as parked.

Three cheers for the Organizers and Volunteers that put in the tremendous effort to clean the campsite, put together the course and events to keep the Challenge running smoothly. Three cheers to the participants running the gauntlet and asking for more!

Saturday night supper was fantastic, putting on a feed that sated the soul.

Flat tires and all,

A huge thank you, especially the Sasquatch sticker, who ever you are that put it there!

Nice picture! Martin did all the chainsaw work to get the wood, I helped load it. I was sure worried that the cake would make it in one piece.
