I my club (townsville rod and custom) is looking for some new ideas for runs.
The old poker run has been done too many time.
We last had a run and gave everybody a list of thing to do on the way to destination,eg. first round about how many trees? at the end points were given. before last stop was local shopping centre with someone from our club giving us a shopping list and money to do some shopping? whats this for we think. Next stop local park and all comes together someones got snags, someones got bread ect.
Anyway if any ideas are out there let us konw we need some new runs.

I thought I had been very clever coming up with a theme for the next 2 Bay Rod Run, Trains, Planes Automobiles. Had the local historical train mob signed up as well as the new avaition museum at Tyabb, even had a logo drawn up and ready to go. Then I get a flyer for the Geelong Sprints. What is it, you guessed it, even offering steam train rides from Melbourne. FARK!

I read recently about a run that used "Survivor" type events, can't remember where it was, but I'd like to know more. I was also thinking of getting the club challenge thing happening again. A lot of rodders would love to see driving events again, but it is just too expensive with the insurance. There is a 1/8th mile single lane track at Cerbrus that I was thinking about as well. What I'd be really interested in is something to keep the rodders entertained during the show and shine.

A few years back when I was helping to organise a car club run I came up with an idea that had been used before, but thought I'd try it anyway.
Have a treasure hunt, but not just any treasure hunt.
A set course with a set of questions and answers, but you also have to find some extra stuff, stupid things like a green banana, hard to find things like a glass coke bottle and a yoyo, and almost impossible stuff like a policemans hat, all that sort of stuff that you wouldnt expect to pickup along the way. Anyway, its great fun trying to get as much stuff as possible along your journey. Just make sure you keep it legal, like no stop signs and dumb stuff like that. If its a two day run extend the time to find stuff over the two days to make it a bit easier.
You can also change the theme to suit whatever youre running with.

Well yeah..never fails but the missus would probably object to the first two..that just leaves R&R; and unless there is a good dance floor then thats probably wasted. It very hard to keep everyone entertained..The kid are generally dragged along objecting...The wives a close second but get into the vibe if they can natter on with others and that just leaves us free to wander around and BS to each other......The club challenge thing is ok when there is a big enough run with many clubs in attendance. I don't envy anyone thats been given the job of entertaiment director...Its a thankless job that will never please everyone.

why not give em all a trip back in memory lane
put on all the old skool stuff when you were a kid at skool
stuff like a 3 leg race
wheelbarrow race
backwards running race
egg on a spoon race
funny stuff like that
i rekon it would be funny watching mr carps be a wheelbarrow
or mr brootal run backwards and mess up his hair when he falls over

Too easy, the banana I left in my bottom drawer is not only green, it's furry! There's a glass coke bottle on my desk from the machine in our lunchroom and the YoYo, well Dolly's boyfriend doesn't really do much to hide himself does he?

Again, too easy, just find a stretch of road that's safe to drive 100km/h then do 105km/h on it.

Hmmmm, I'm not sure I like where this is going Carps, but I simply suggested some of the things that I put on our club run's list, there were alot more than that I can assure you. And BTW, no-one got the YoYo either.
And I think its time you cleaned out your drawers (yes that DOES have a double meaning)...........
