Pilbara News - - News - Tom Zaun­mayr

The mishaps and mis­ad­ven­tures of a four-wheel-drive club will help send Kar­ratha’s cub Scouts to a huge three­night camp near Perth in Septem­ber.

Red Dog 4WD Club raised $781 through its fines tin in the past year which last week was do­nated to the Kar­ratha Cub Scouts.

The Scouts will put the money to­wards a trip to the En­duro 2016 camp­ing trip in Kar­rakup, just south of Perth.

Red Dog 4WD Club pres­i­dent Mark Han­non said events such as car break­downs, punc­tures and an­noy­ing be­hav­iour led to fines in the club.

“It’s all a joke, it’s all a bit of fun, and it goes to a good cause,” he said.

“We had a cou­ple of good ones through the year.

“One guy lost a car, cov­ered in wa­ter.

“His brand-spank­ing new Colorado. “He paid a $50 fine.” Mr Han­non said pro­ceeds from fines for the year to come would be do­nated to SAFE Kar­ratha.

Cub Scouts leader Zoe Roosendaal said the do­na­tion would go a long way to get­ting the group to the En­duro camp out with more than 500 cub Scouts from across WA.

“The cubs will be trav­el­ling to Perth and meet­ing with other cubs through­out the State and spend­ing three days and three nights hav­ing ad­ven­tures and the Man­jedal Scout ad­ven­ture camp” she said.

“This was a bit of a sur­prise so its lovely to have.”

Mrs Roosendaal said the Scouts were hop­ing to raise $6000 to­wards the trip.
