GO GEORGE joins in community fun event

GO GEORGE joins in community fun event

Just one week after colourful GO GEORGE staff members lined the streets of the town in celebration of the bus service's third birthday, equally interesting characters could be seen boarding the buses in Pacaltsdorp on Reconciliation Day, Saturday 16 December. This time, the excited passengers were participants in an Amazing Race event organised by local radio station, Heartbeat FM, as part of their Family Fun Day held at Pacaltsdorp High School.

GO GEORGE was approached by the organisers to be part of the race, with participants catching the normal scheduled buses to get to the points indicated by the clues they received from race officials at certain designated bus stops. Some teams came dressed up in costume, others turned up looking like serious athletes with just the right sports gear to intimidate their opponents.

All participants received a GO GEORGE drawstring bag with water, a foam peak cap, and a handy pocket guide displaying route maps and timetables. Teams could be seen gathered around route maps with intense concentration along the way.

Members of the winning team, the Vollies, each received a GO GEORGE shopping bag with branded items including a cap, T-shirt, pen and pencil set, umbrella, blanket and one multi-journey bus ticket with 10 trips.

GO GEORGE neem daal aan gemeenskap-pretdag

Skaars een week nadat kleurvolle GO GEORGE-personeel die busdiens se derde verjaarsdag oral langs die strate van die dorp gevier het, is ewe interessante karakters in Pacaltsdorp op die busse opgemerk op Versoeningsdag, Saterdag 16 Desember. Hierdie keer was die opgewonde passasiers egter deelnemers aan ’n Amazing Race-wedloop, gereël deur plaaslike radiostasie, Heartbeat FM, as deel van hul Gesinspretdag by Pacaltsdorp-hoërskool.

GO GEORGE is deur die organiseerders genader om deel van die wedloop te wees, sodat deelnemers die gewone geskeduleerde busse kon haal na die punte wat deur die leidrade aangedui is. Wedloopbeamptes het die leidrade by spesifieke bushaltes aan die deelnemers uitgedeel. Sommige spanne het in vrolike kostuums opgedaag, terwyl ander soos ernstige atlete gelyk het met net die regte sporttoerusting om hul teenstanders te intimideer.

Alle deelnemers het ’n GO GEORGE-toerygsakkie met water, ’n sonskerm, en ’n handige sakgids met roetekaarte en tydroosters ontvang. Oral langs die pad is spanne  in intense bespreking rondom die roetekaarte opgemerk.

Lede van die wenspan, die Vollies, het elkeen ’n GO GEORGE-inkopiesak met ’n GO GEORGE-pet, T-hemp, pen- en potloodstel, sambreel, kombers en een multiritkaartjie met 10 ritte ontvang.

ONDERSKRIF:

En die wenners van die GO GEORGE Amazing Race wat op Versoeningsdag in Pacaltsdorp gehou is, is ... die Vollies! Die wenspan het baie in hul skik met hulself en hul prys-items saam met van die organiseerders geposeer. Voor, van links, is Jayden Kammies, Grenville Julies, Deonlin Sampson, en Ferdie Geduld (GO GEORGE Champion).
