Mountains to the Sea Results - June 25 Saturday Rally

Mountains to the Sea Rally Results

An enthusiastic group of ralliers ran the 57th anniversary Mountains to the Sea Rally on May 14. The rally started in northwest Portland and ended in Seaside, a drive of almost 200 miles taking about six and half hours. The route traveled north into Washington, visiting the Fargher Lake Historic Store and the Cedar Creek Grist Mill and Covered Bridge. After a lunch transit through Longview, ralliers crossed the Columbia River and headed through Clatskanie, on roads less traveled, to the Jewel Wildlife Viewing Area for afternoon break. Then it was on to the finish, crossing Youngs Bay and following the Lewis and Clark River to Seaside.

Congratulations to the top finishers. First overall and first in SOP was the recently wed team of Marcus and Kerrie Gattman with a score of 155 - that's an average of just under 4 seconds error per leg over the 39 legs in the event. Second overall and second SOP was the parental unit David and JoAnn Gattman with a score of 182. (We heard there was some family competition between these two teams.) Third overall and first in the Equipped category was the team of Sue and Bill Colisch with a score of 237.

Honorable mention goes to the third place SOP team of Angelique and Kevin Ortega with a score of 251 and the first Novice team of Lee Nielsen and Chuck Winkler with a score of 253. Also notable is the tie for fourth SOP between the teams of Bill and Kelly Ferber and Dave and Kathy Sacry, both teams with a final score of 276. 

The top three teams in each class won award plaques and the first place overall team took the perpetual trophy home (again). Congratulations to all!
