Photos of Citychase and BBQ

Part 1. The Race

Here's some pics of the CityChase adventure race we did two weekends ago on Maureen's Bday. We started and ended the day at Luna Park - the race took us to the PM's Place. The link to our picture with the PM in front of his place.

Then it was off to eat worms! The pic above left is the bucket of dirt filled with worms that we had to pick through. The challenge: complete a sudoku puzzle or eat two live worms each. We chose the latter because it would be alot faster more fun - how often do you get to eat live worms! And even though Mo is vego she doesn't draw the line at worms haha(especially if they are in tequila).

We caught the train to Bondi Junction for some texas hold 'em poker and a little scavenger hunt (lucky Mo has a tattoo there!) and on the bus to Centennial Park for a Biggest Loser style boot camp session (minus the biggest losers) and some Strip Cricket!

Then we were back in town at Circular Quay in the Minus 5 bar eating icecubes without eskimo jackets! Then over to the MCA to make a balloon dog to sell for charity, ran down George St tied up as a four legged group and that's me (above right) Pole Dancing in Jackson's on George (I never thought I'd pole dance looking so feral haha)

Then it was over to Observatory Hill for a quiz and we ran over the Harbour Bridge to get back to the finish line Yay!!!

It was a brilliant day except for the humidity - my face was beetroot red after the first 5 minutes and stayed that way until the very end! Maureen on the other hand looked fine (funny that!) We celebrated our finish with hot chips, beer and a massage on a vibrating machine back at Luna Park!

Here's the official link with a little video clip of the Channel9 news item. My friend Cheech even made it into the clip -"brain freeze!" hahah love it!

Part 2. The BBQ

We had a little bbq on sunday to celebrate Maureen's Bday and also as an excuse to get Chef Robbie to cook for all of us!

Digging into the chow! Magoo gives us 'Blue Steel'
