THE SHITBOX RALLY
Think about it – this is going to be great fun. Sure it’s not for everyone, those who don’t like to get their hands dirty or spend any time away from civilization need not apply. For the rest of us, this may just be what you have been looking for.
This rally is for those that want to have an adventure, that crave something different, something memorable, but most importantly, it’s for those who want to raise much needed money for charity.
Many of us have been affected by cancer in one way or another. Whether it be parents, family, close friends, people we know or ourselves that have battled or are battling cancer, this all too common and the horrid disease has touched us all.
We not only want to raise awareness and money for the Cancer Council, but we want to be able to offer support and a friendly ear to those that have suffered or are suffering. This event is officially endorsed and supported by the Cancer Council.
The only stipulation that the car that we choose is no more than AUS$1,000 on buying it and this must include registration and roadworthiness (pro rata for the week of the rally).
We will need to get creative and make sure you turn up in something that is truly memorable – it will make the adventure that much more rewarding when we will be in the middle of Australia, 200kms from anywhere and trying to fix a burst water tube with gaffer tape, string and pliers. Will need to ask some old RV folks for ideas
The cars are an asset that we will auction off or donate at the end of the rally to raise further money for charity.
It is not a race, but there will be a winner. Prizes are awarded at the end of the rally.
The main prize, or 1st place if you like will be judged on a number of factors including how hopeless our car is, how much we have gotten into the rally spirit, how much our team has raised and a number of other undisclosed reasons that will generally be made up as the rally unfolds.
