Kicking off with our second 12 Car Rally, with 7 Entries (3 Expert and 4 Semi-Expert). A good selection of clues from Uncle Bob, and it was Richard Dickson & Roger Alcorn who finished on 8 penalties, just one ahead of Michael Riddick (deputising for The Captain) & Keith Riddick. Making a return this season were the other father & son team of John & Mark McCulloch, who finished slightly further back on 20 penalties.

In the Semi-Experts, Rab Henderson & Peter Game took the win on 20 penalties, from a second-place tie between Nancy Dickson & Greg Alcorn and Rebekah Russell & Mairi Riddick, who were both on 23 penalties. Fourth place went to Ron & Grace Orr on 138 penalties. Thank you to Bob Green for organising, the Gowans Family for the start venue, and everyone who came out on the night to marshal.
