Today was something different. It started off with the Gary Dibble rally/quiz. I think this is the first time the bike club has done something like this.
Gary had worked out a route where you had to discover the answer to clues that were located in different places around Albany.
We were each given a sheet and the first question was at the info bay.
It was hilarious, its a long time since we’d been to school and getting
the brain working in a different direction resulted in some hilarious
With the first question answered (we think) we headed off for the next
clue to look for the answer, this time at the Bayonet Head lookout. It
was a revelation to some that the place existed as being locals we don’t
go there, only tourists, crazy isn’t it?
The morning continued with us tearing off to one place after another
eventually ending up at Emu Point searching for the answer to the
question “What are the signs with SS in it?” We had to get five. By then
we needed a coffee break being intellectually exhausted.
Then it was to the port and up the top of Mt Melville before ending at
the Albany Volunteer Fire and Rescue Station where all was ready for us
to BBQ our lunch.
Hot and cold drinks were provided, and being such a nice day a coldie
was most enjoyable. After lunch the Club had the pleasure of presenting
the Albany Volunteer Fire and Rescue crew a cheque for $4000, proceeds
from the 2016 Hill Climb Weekend. They were most grateful stating that
it was their main donation for the year.
Of course the crew from the Service donate their time over the Hill
Climb Weekend on the Saturday and Sunday helping out with the Poker Run
and marshalling on the Sunday.
Anne, Gary’s helper then read out the answers to the questions from the
morning’s rally/quiz, no prizes, just the pleasure of getting them
right, or nearly right.
Eventually it was time to head off, a great day. Gary was getting pressured into doing another Rally next year, we hope he will.
