AAAC XMAS BBQ & Memorial Run 2017
Sunday December 10th

The weather was perfect for our run, which had the interesting title of “Visiting Multicultural Places of Worship”.

I drove our 1969 MGB, and without a Navigator, I was a bit apprehensive about being able to find my way around Adelaide, and answer quiz questions.
I needn’t have worried, as I was partnered with well known Rally Navigator and Raconteur Chris Gray !

Our first stop was the Holy Cross Catholic Church on Goodwood Road, where we had to record what was on the spire.

We then turned right into Greenhill Road, and answered a question regarding the Russian Orthodox Church, then on to Unley
Road and South Terrace, then on to Halifax Street, where we correctly identified the Saint John the Evangelist Church.

We then passed the Kent Town Uniting Church on Fullarton Road and the Mormon Temple on Lower Portrush Road.
We cruised almost the entire length of Regency Road, heading West, where we passed the Al Kahli Mosque, then turned left into
Cheltenham Parade, viewing the Jehovah Witness building. It was then a left turn into Port Road, where we observed the Saint
Margaret’s Anglican and the Serbian Orthodox churches.

Nearing the end of our ride [ and thinking of the B-B-Q to come], we visited the Saint Patrick “Italian” Catholic Church in Grote Street, then into Franklin Street, where we found the Greek Orthodox church of the Archangels Michael and Gabriel.
That was the end of the run [ so I thought ], so we headed back to the clubrooms for lunch. As we handed in our run-sheets,
I discovered that “someone” had not seen the 4th page containing a list of questions to be completed ? Oh well, there went the prize ???

Seriously, my thanks to Chris for a most entertaining drive, to Coral and David for their always great novelty run, and to Ed and his helpers back at the clubrooms, for another great lunch.

Best Wishes to all for a safe festive season and a prosperous 2018.

John Sommers.
