The smell of fresh popcorn and sweet fairy floss as you walked (or hobbled for those walkers who had been on their feet since 6am that morning) into the Southern Districts Rugby Club on the 22nd of October was the perfect ending of the Michael Tynan Memorial Challenge Day 1. From the Driving challenge participants, to the Paddlers and Walkers plus friends and family, everyone enjoyed a night under the stars watching movies. With great big bean bags and blankets that were oh so comfy and a good old Australian BBQ, or for those who preferred to purchase a picnic boxes that night it was one to remember, and all for a the SSMRF - St George & Sutherland Medical Research Foundation.
St George Bank had a friendly Dragon that came along to the movie night to keep us entertained while the walkers unwounded with massages and something to drink.
The little ones (or lets be real even the adults) enjoyed watching Inside Out as the sun went down. As the night time came upon us it was time for the second and final movie of the night, Creed. Soon after that our walkers, if they hadn't already, got ready for bed in their tents that were set up on the Rugby Field by volunteers. In preparation for the second day of the walking challenge, the walkers caught some well deserved and needed hours of sleep before they were back at it again the next morning.
