Gary Sci­fleet

Big Rigs - - TRUCKIN’ IN THE TROP­ICS WITH ALF WIL­SON -

BUND­ABERG-based Gary Sci­fleet trans­ported the sec­ond ever “gla­di­a­tor” to Palm Is­land on an Isuzu light truck.

But this was a vastly dif­fer­ent gla­di­a­tor to Hol­ly­wood ac­tor star Rus­sell Crowe who vis­ited Palm Is­land with his band 30 Odd Foot Of Grunts in July 2004.

Gary works for Rides N Slides and this was a gla­di­a­tor duel game which was amongst chil­dren’s en­ter­tain­ment equip­ment he took there for NAIDOC cel­e­bra­tions.

The other things were a big slide, merry go round and sports ac­tiv­i­ties.

“The kids re­ally loved it and we came over on the barge and spent four days here and set up in the park near the sea. It is a beau­ti­ful place. The Isuzu is a re­li­able light truck,” he said. Gary and other work­ers trav­elled over with the Isuzu and equip­ment from Lucinda across the ocean.

The com­pany trav­els all of North Queens­land.
