  1. So I am pretty sure I found the location of this shot, I cropped it down a bit: My family went for a hike to the Pembina valley provincial park today. On the way home I took this portion of 201 near the provincial park: the trees are much taller now but check out the clearing of grassy arias on both sides of the other side of the valley along side of the road in the far side of the photo they are the same. in my photo you can not see the bridge at the bottom of the valley because the trees are much taller but it is there.

I am really curious now I think I will take a drive up there and see if I can find the spot the photo was taken and see what it looks like 58 years later.
  3. I am also curious is this photo is the same location on provincial road 201 that I described in my previous post: http://forums.wscc.mb.ca/index.php?/gallery/image/42-1960swscchillclimb13jpeg/
  4. I don't know any tracks. but if an event could be organized out close to the Pembina Valley Bible Camp west of Morden there are some nice curvy gravel roads out there with large elevation changes. Would need to get the roads closed for the events but would make some good stage rally sections. I am told by an old racer that they used to run rally's out by Morden in the early days of the wscc. To get to the road I am thinking of take highway number 3 west out of Morden. Turn left (south) on highway 31( still paved but a beautiful short stretch through a large valley). Head south on highway 31towards Maida. Make a left/east on provincial road 201 (this is a gravel road). drive 201 till you have a choice to go left or right but not straight. Now when you turn left onto road 201 going north is the section I am thinking of. It is about a 2.25 mile section of gravel that would make a sweet portion of stage rally. On my map the biggest curve in this stretch is labeled "Holo Crossing" I have driven some other sweet gravel roads while exploring that portion of our Provence I just don't remember where they are any more. Not sure who this would concern but, I would like to participate in a winter rally with my winter car this year. something different than hot laps on the ice race course. Something with solo tied runs. Maybe a field on some ones back country yard/farm. SCCA rally's (I have never been to one just watched on youtube) seem to be in grassy/ dirt fields and mapped out like an auto cross. That would be fun in winter map it out in the snow and have at it. Is this something we could presue as a club this winter? if so I am in! I may just have to build a metal tube/skid plate to save my bumper front bumper. I would help with the event if we could get this going would be soooooo good! Could we potentially use some of the autocross cones and timing equipment to run the event?

    Event 10 at Gimil

    Sorry to hear about your Subaru. I needed a tow home as well. I have some pretty awesome friends who came all the way from Winkler today to pick me and the Miata up. I managed to do all four runs and then fun runs happened and I got in line about to stage and the car would not go any where except reverse while in neutral. So I ended up backing the car all the way out of GMP till the highway at the end of our event. No internet at the hotel or research would have allowed me to have fixed the car in 15 min! turns out that the 1990-1993 miata 5 speeds will get stuck in reverse but still allow you to shift into 1st or second while stuck in reverse. This happens when you shift from fifth while moving to first/second. My last run I missed my shift into third after the cross over and hit fifth. So I down shifted back to second (Wonderfull shifter slop). I finished the run. I went to do fun runs and that is where the problem happened. Shawn, awesome awesome course. My favourite one this year! quite fast too, I needed third for quite a while after the cross over!
