Road Rally 2013 Winners

Congratulations to the 2013 Road Rally winners – the Mike Meyers team which consisted of Cliff and Carley Johnson, Lena Watt, Catherine Wilson, Keyla Korroll, and Jason Doleman.  The Mike Meyers team edged out the Jim Carrey team by nine points to secure first place.

Winners of the Best Costume go to Johnny Depp – each member of the team dressed up as a different Johnny Depp movie.  The best costume award was voted on by everyone who participated and it was a close vote as every team was very creative this year.

Special thanks to Brad Unger and SuperValu, Village Video, the Legion, Bruce and Karen Creelman, Maureen Levering, Linda Vandenberg, Gordie Waterman, Melony Larre, Dick Dennison, Pipers on the Ridge, Little Dinos, Green Island Energy, Gold River Rod and Gun Club, Gold River Golf Course, Western Forest Products Inc., Gary Foster, Michelle Dexter, and Sheila Bugar. 

And a big thank you to everyone who participated; I hope you all had as much fun as we had planning it.

Road Rally 2013 – Space Still Available

What is road rally?

The annual Road Rally is an event sponsored by the Gold River Rod and Gun Club.  Essentially it is a scavenger hunt done by car where you have to complete activities at some of the stops.  One year we had to eat jello from a bowl not using our hands, so some of activities are pretty crazy.  After a day of driving around town and gathering clues we meet for a potluck dinner and awards ceremony.  Yes, 1st prize is planning the event the following year but it’s fun to plan as well as do.

Still interested?  Road Rally is coming up this SATURDAY, APRIL 20th from 8:30am to 2pm and then from 6pm -1am.  There is still space so if you are interested,phone Margie Weeks at 250-283-2308 or Suzanne Shears at 250-283-7722 by Friday.  The theme this year is MOVIES so when you call to register, you’ll be asked which actor you’d like to represent.  Costumes are optional but can get you more points towards winning!!

Hope to see you there!

Road Rally 2013: Still Time to Register

For those Buzz readers who are new to town and/or soon-to-be residents, the Road Rally is essentially a town wide scavenger hunt that raises money for the Rod and Gun Club. You have a team of people, and you drive around in costume (according to the theme), finding clues and completing activities. (Some are pretty crazy!)  In the evening, there is a potluck dinner and dance at the Rod and Gun Club.   The prize for winning is that you get to plan next year’s road rally! :)

Thank you all for your past, current and future dedication to this great event – see you in June 2014.
