Local quartet back for another bash
by Samantha Thomas
After taking last year’s SA
Variety Bash by storm, a
local foursome will rise to the
challenge again on Saturday.
Apex Club of Loxton members
Rhain Hondow, Brendan Schulz,
Simon Bullock and newcomer Jack
Evans will travel over 2400km in
the City to Sea bash from Adelaide
to Port Lincoln, which also marks
the 30th anniversary of the charity
Dressing up as firefighters with
their Fireman Sam-themed car, the
team was popular in last year’s
“Last year, we were named Best
Virgin Team and there’s a 30-year
tradition of the Best Virgin Team
returning the following year,” Mr
“We enjoyed it, so we wanted to
do it again.
“It should be pretty exciting.
“Apex is youth-based and youth-
orientated and Variety is all about
the kids, so it just sits very well.”
In a special nod to the first bash in
1989, Mr Hondow said this year’s
event will follow a similar course.
“Apparently we’re following the
same route,” he said.
“I don’t know if we’re going to
all the exact same spots, but the
original one started in Adelaide and
ended in Port Lincoln.”
Team newcomer Mr Evans said
he was quick to fill the vacant
fourth spot and was “keen” for the
“I’m always out there to fundraise
for worthy causes and Variety’s a
worthy cause,” he said.
“It’s a good cause and a good,
Mr Bullock said the team was
grateful for the local community’s
support to help with the fundraising
component of entering a bash.
“We’d like to thank all our spon-
sors,” he said.
“People in Adelaide have got a
bigger base to go off.
“We’re in a small town, so thank
you to all the people that have
sponsored, donated, bought raffle
Mr Schulz agreed that local sup-
port had made it “all possible”.
“We’ve fundraised another
$10,000, so in two years we’ve
done $20,000 for kids in need,” he
The team will depart from Victoria
Park racecourse in Adelaide on
Saturday, before arriving in Port
Lincoln on Saturday, August 18,
taking in the sights of Port Victoria,
Wallaroo, Jamestown, Hawker,
Beltana, Marree, William Creek,
Coober Pedy, North Well station,
Pondanna outstation, Kimba and
Tumby Bay along the way.
Locals Brendan Schulz, Rhain
Hondow, Jack Evans and Simon
Bullock will take part in their second
SA Variety Bash on Saturday, travelling
from Adelaide to Port Lincoln in the
30th anniversary edition.
