Pilbara News - - News - Tom Zaun­mayr

Epic ad­ven­tures, mis­ad­ven­tures and culi­nary prow­ess have been re­warded at a Pil­bara four­wheel-drive club’s an­nual gen­eral meet­ing.

The Red Dog 4WD Club hosted the awards night last week, where tro­phies were handed out for best long trip, best short trip, best pit crew boss, best dum­myspit, club mem­ber of the year, stinky hat award and the an­nual cook-off win­ners.

Paul Thomp­son got the nod for best long trip and pit crew boss awards, both from his trip to the Can­ning Stock Route.

Short trip of the year went to Paul Heaton and the stinky hat went to Adam Ur­win for get­ting bogged at 40 Mile.

Best dummy-spit went to Cor­rine March af­ter she lost it when some­one burnt her damper on the an­nual cook-off.

CJ Green won Red Dog­ger of the year.

Mr Green said he loved exploring his own back­yard with the club.

“It is just get­ting to­gether with a bunch of peo­ple who like do­ing the same things you do,” he said.

“There are a lot of club mem­bers from a lot of dif­fer­ent back­grounds so it is good when we put our heads to­gether and make a day of some­thing.” Red Dog 4WD Club pres­i­dent Mark Han­non said Mr Green was the first per­son to re­spond if some­one had got their car bogged.

Mr Han­non said the stinky hat came about af­ter be­ing found on the side of the road one day.

“It is an old-style hat and peo­ple de­cided that the hat re­ally smells, so we would start giv­ing it out as an award for who­ever gets no­ticed the most,” he said.

“What they have to do is add some­thing to the hat then it goes on to the next per­son.”

Mr Han­non said more trips and com­mu­nity events were on the cards for the com­ing year.
