Still very tired and weary, so only a short update/wrap up for today and we will do a final and more in depth wrap up in the next day or so when our minds come back down to earth.
Last night our 2016 Road Boss Rally Super Addition came to an end and what a fitting end it was. Feed back from the 200 people in the room, THE BEST EVER! It was a lot of fun and a memorable occasion for a very special group that participated in a very special event.
At the end of the RBR and beginning of the Super we announced that we had raised $219 000 for GIVIT. Well that has now grown just a little over the past fifteen days and through everyone’s amazing generosity our final Rally Tally came in at $250 000. Yes, you are reading that correctly, a quarter of a million dollars!
All the winners and grinners received their hard earned awards for their efforts but the feeling was unanimous, everyone was a winner and most importantly, our charity GIVIT and the thousands of charities and communities they help and assist.
Our panicle award is our Supreme ‘GIVIT’ Everything award. This award can’t be won, only earned and it was with great pride that we presented this to everyone’s friend, John “Jumbo” Schefe. Jumbo represents who we are, what we are and is the back bone of our rally. He is the epitome of our core entrant and as we often say, we are all just ordinary people doing extraordinary things. Jumbo has done over twenty of our rallies and he is a real ‘under the radar’ sort of bloke. But what he does quietly behind the scenes is extremely generous and benefits so many people and communities. Well done Jumbo, you have joined a very prestigious group of people and have your name proudly displayed among our finest. You can also proudly bare the badge of being the first name on the brand new era of the Road Boss Rally.
Today another migration started with everyone beginning their journeys back home. It truly is trains, planes and automobiles. Cars are on transport, some have started driving back and quite a few are continuing their holiday and heading in varying directions. Our American friends also board a long flight home tonight as well.
Thanks again everyone and we look forward to giving you a final wrap up in the next few days.
