On a pleasant Sunday morning (certainly a change from earlier in the week) a group of 7 cars lined up for what would hope to be a fun run out in western Sydney.After our morning coffee fix at McDonalds on the M4 westbound we wandered over to Red Rooster to be given instructions and an envelope with the directions listed. All cars were then sent off at 2 minute intervals.The rest of the team being the organizers then headed off to our final destination (that being Warragamba Dam ) where we then began to arrange for our lunch.
As Donnah and Lucia were the first to be flagged off it was surprising to see them 1st in. Admittingly they missed a number of the questions on the questionare because they did not go near them and took a different route to the instructions. In their defence though the instructions did miss a vital turnoff. All the other teams picked this error up and managed to finish the run as per instructions.
After everyone arrived at the Dam, Simon then tallied up the results. Citations were handed out to the 3 highest scoring teams and 1 for the lowest ( no guesses who won this one ) 1st place went to Gavin and Karren A and for their efforts a grand prize of an all new STC Hoodie was awarded to them. 2nd went to Darren and Kylie with Steve and his brother Mark coming in 3rd.
Lunch at the Dam was a relaxed casual affair with sausage sandwiches and cold drinks expertly cooked up by Simon, Craig and Jurgen. Dessert was on offer in the form of a Chocolate birthday cake for Gavin and with a hearty rendition of happy birthday every grabbed a piece.
All in all everyone commented how much fun they had doing this course. The instructions were not perfect but we can build on it for more mystery runs as time goes on.
A big thank you to wife Robyne with her assistance in organising this. Also to Craig and Janene for their assistance also by coming along and mapping out the course.Also to Simon for all the editing, printing etc and for arranging all the food. Thank you all for your help.
