All revved up for Quyon Lionettes car rally

Rally teams: start your engines and adjust your costumes.

Last Saturday's 29th annual Quyon Lionettes car rally fundraising event was a huge success with 54 teams participating for prizes, trophies and the sheer glory of victory. Departing the Beach Barn in five minute increments, the drivers followed a series of directions and clues to amass the greatest amount of points to win the day. Needless to say, more points were gained via elaborate costumes for both humans and vehicles. Following the theme of 'movie stars', as chosen by last years' winners, participants went all out with the fancy dress.

A hot supper back at the Barn concluded the day. This years' winners were Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs in their eight-seated machine.

Good luck following this Yellow Brick Road...

All funds from the event go towards supporting the Lionettes' work in the community, including beautification projects, donations to the town's two schools and emergency help for those experiencing financial difficulty and property loss.
