The Compass - - THE COMPASS - PHO­TOS BY SHIRLEY GE­ORGE SPE­CIAL TO THE COM­PASS

On Fri­day, May 19, the Cavendish 50-plus Club held its an­nual car rally. The route cov­ered the com­mu­ni­ties of Cavendish, White­way, Green’s Har­bour and Ho­peall and in­cluded six teams from the club. Teams were re­quired to col­lect items along the route, sim­i­lar to a scav­enger hunt, and re­ceived in­struc­tions at var­i­ous check­points. Ques­tions had to be an­swered on var­i­ous stops and pic­tures taken to prove teams com­pleted the as­signed task. Ex­tra points were awarded for the best or most out­ra­geous cos­tume, while a com­ple­tion time was also a fac­tor in se­lect­ing a win­ning team. This year, a team called The Check­ers came out on top. Mem­bers in­cluded Ju­nior Jack­son, Betty Jack­son, Carolann Pre­coor and Clarence Pre­coor. The car rally con­cept was spear­headed by Thomas Dob­bie and his ac­tiv­ity com­mit­tee, which is also com­prised of Gerri Jack­son, Butch Strick­land, Daphne Jack­son, Sheila Jer­rett, Phyl­lis Jack­son, and Nel­lie Jack­son. Or­ga­niz­ers say this year’s event was an­other over­whelm­ing suc­cess.
