Despite the weather not being the kindest to us (for the second year in a row), this year’s Summer Extravanganza went ahead and was a success with a great amount of money being raised for the school by the PSA.
With the smell of burgers and hot dogs in the air and people feeding themselves on the delicious cakes, scones and fruit kebabs, there were a selection of stalls, oppotunities for children to play games on the playground and the running of the inaugural Mount Charles Dilly Race.
There was a fantastic turnout of dillys (like go-karts) designed to transport a teddy down a road. Families had worked really hard together on the designs – well done to everyone who took part!
During the evening the vehicles were raced down the road and timed to see who would make the distance (20m) in the fastest time. Congratulations to Frazer and his family who won the event with a time of 4.78 seconds with the dilly seen above (sorry, I broke the number plate when I put my foot out to stop it after the first run!) Other awards were presented for the best crash, the most interesting design and the slowest vehicle to finish (which took 1 minute 52.9 seconds!)
How did your dilly do? Did you come to the Summer Extravanganza this year, if so, what did you enjoy best? Please let us know by leaving a comment below!
