Big 50 Juke Box Rally 24 April 2016

A new starting point and a new organizer greeted us for the Big “50” Juke Box Rally on Sunday! Helen Pitt bravely stepped in at the last minute to organize this rally, and the result was a stupendous success! Meeting at the car park adjacent to the Can Penasso restaurant, and after enjoying our regular tea/coffee & croissants supplied by Sue, the cars departed in one minute intervals for a trip through the Mallorcan countryside. The route took us through Valdemossa, Esporles, Puigpenyent, Establishments, Calvia around Palmanova and finishing at the SA VINYA in ES CAPDELLA. Along the route questions were set which all related to well known songs from the 50’s through to current day. In addition we had to lookout for Juke Box signs, which were hung in very difficult places, and answer a question which was attached to each location. The overall winner on the day was Gordon Cox, 2nd Robert & Jane Klevenhagen, and 3rd, yours truly, Ray & Sue Dodd! With all the members seated at tables around the swimming pool in glorious weather, an enjoyable three course lunch was served, complete with wines and other refreshments. The theme had been set around Pam’s big birthday and to mark the occasion, Helen had been able to arrange, a singing and musical duo, offering a great Elvis Presley tribute act. As you can imagine  the dancing techniques of the members were soon put on display and a brilliant time was had by all. On behalf of the committee our thanks to Helen for taking so much time to arrange and organize this event and for a job well done! Best regards to all,
