This is what founder and organiser, Perry Gilsenan had to say immediately after getting back from last weekend's Scrapheap Adventure Ride:

Scrapheap Adventure Ride 2014 was one of our best. A great venue and a great bunch of people raising close to $70,000 for Down Syndrome NSW!!!

There was lots of laughter on arrival and the feedback was everyone had a great ride getting to Nymboida!

Friday night there were 3 different stews and a beef Curry to feed close to 100 people. No complaints and ample available. The big shed was great at meal times.

On Saturday morning Dave Ramsay lead a ride, with a lot of laughs too with the Milan 50cc scooter getting the most air on some of the jumps.

Saturday night was our biggest night ever with about 150 people sitting down together for a good dinner, trophies awarded, charity auction and then the raffle prizes! Looks like we will hit $70,000 in funds raised this year! A Great Effort by one and all.
Best Scrapper - Chris Schneider - Milan 50cc Scooter
Best Engineered Scrapper - Charley Loomis - FZWhy 250
Best Vinduro - Demus Tintner - XT500
Best Sidecar - Dak Dak Dave Kawasaki 750 Sidecar
Most Raised Individual was Andrew Hunter who raised over $6,000, Graeme Girdler $4,136, Mike Case $3,076
Most Raised Teams was Team Inverell who raised over $10,000, closely followed by Toowoomba Scrappers $7,400 then Team DT with $4,075
Longest Distance was Graeme Girdler who rode up from the South Coast, only getting his licence 8 weeks prior. Matty Brumby had come up from Melbourne but only rode from Sydney.
Hard Luck Award went to Adam Wurr, who ran an old IT175, restored over 12 months. His bike broke down about 45 minutes after we left Dural and was shedding parts consistently whilst on the trailer the rest of the way to Nymboida.
Once again a big THANK YOU to all who have attended or supported riders on this year's Scrapheap Adventure Ride.

Best Sidecar - David Scharf,  Kawasaki 750 Sidecar
