The 1986 "Almost" Annual Car Rally sponsored by the Calgary Social Club, was so much fun, it will be on the 1987 Social Club activities.

tmb pwa car rallyThe rally wound its way through four neighbouring towns before ending at Bragg Creek. Average time for the 139 kms was two and half hours. Each car was given a questionnaire to record various events during the trip.

For answering the most questions correctly, the John Morris, Dick Gardner, Bob Buessecker team took home the Car Cup Trophy.

Lady luck must have been in the car with Pat Petersen, Susal Almond and Pat's two-year old navigator son, who picked up the best poker hand en-route. At each of the five stops the team picked up a playing card to create their hands. Three Jacks won Pat a week-end for two in Banff!!

But most noticeable of all was Earl and Donna Weisbrod who won the coveted "Lost in Space" award. Although they didn't even make it to the first check stop they eventually sniffed out the dinner and joined the others for the celebration. After a fun-filled evening of dining and dancing they all began the difficult task of navigating their way home. 

In the photo are John Morris and Dick Gardner of YYC Reservations, teamed up with Bob Buessecker, YYC Print-shop to win the Trophy.

(Can anyone tell us if the 1987 car rally took place, and, if not, what happened to the trophy – eds)
