This year's Annual Club Competition was held at Prairie City OHV Park, located east of Sacramento. Jim and Vicki  caught up with "J" along  Prairie City Road and then reached Dave via CB radio at Prairie City. The weather was sunny in Sacramento and Citrus Heights, but the morning fog still covered Prairie City. We arrived a little before 10:00am. The area with the picnic tables in the center of the 4x4 area was opened so we setup on top of the hill.

About 10:30 am we got asked for help and "J" got the opportunity to pull out an Isuzu stuck in a mud hole.

The fog and low clouds began clearing about 10:45 am and we had sunny skies the rest of the day. We had a good turn out for the event with Dave, Jim & Vicki, Bill, "J", Sue, Jim L., Tom and Kathy, Dana and Darlene, Gene and Jackie, Jerry Sr. and son Jerry Jr. and Bruce coming out for a day of fun.

Dave drove the blindfold course first and set the time to beat at 5 min 25 sec.
To increase the difficulty the driver had to stop and pick up two cups along the course, while blindfolded.

Notice the coke can on the rear bumper. The can stayed on the entire run.
