Good Day eh!

The RACE TO ERASE is back and team Light Side of the Moon has been created on Your Captain the humble Rob Hodgson is looking for three crew to accompany him on a one day mission of fun, fellowship and some serious challenges. Last year we were challenged to listen to music and name the artists, sing silly songs, dance (yes dance), roll beer barrels and all the raised funds go to Hope Clothing.

I encourage you to seek me out or create a team of your own. This is a major fund-raiser for Hope Clothing in 2018. If you can't participate you can still be involved by sponsoring the team of your choice. 100% of the funds are donated to charities.

Dig out your space suit and prepare to travel "to infinity and beyond" <lol>  "phasers on fun."
