Car Rally

Car Rally October 10, 2012

15 cars full of happy Probians departed the Zoo parking lot on time and rolled through the autumn countryside, Navigators had their sextons out and took various sightings as the scribes recorded name places and answered questions. Some CANADIAN HISTORY questions were included. This was done to add interest in the tour and to prevent more than one car’s crew getting all the answers correct.

Car Rally

From the buzz of the conversation in the Eganridge dining hall overlooking Sturgeon Lake, everyone enjoyed themselves.

All drivers received a free car wash, much needed after the country cottage roads. The crew received Tim Horton gift certificates. The winning car – Ivo Nightingale and his team received an additional fiscal reward for getting the most answers correct.

Everyone appreciated all the work Lyn Chaplin and Barb Howard and Jim Chaplin put into mapping, planning and driving the route.
