Yarwun Valley rally adds colour across city

THE Great Rio Tinto Yarwun Valley Rally might not be back next year, but not because it has not been successful.

More than 60 cars registered to be a part of the scavenger-hunt-type event that had competitors taking selfies and racing around Gladstone.

Tess Baker from Yarwun State School P&C said it took six months to organise the rally, including working out the clues and prizes, to raise money to modernise the school's library with iPads, laptops and interactive projectors.

Ms Baker said the P&C was looking to hold the event every two years because of the planning needed to pull it off, but it had not made a final decision yet.

Jessica McAlpine, from team Fairy Dust, said although the clues were not difficult to work out, competitors needed a strategy.

"We figured them out and then put them in geographical order so we went to the next closest one," Jessica said.
