Jim’s 10 schooner scooter bet




SCOOTING: Jim Gault, 38, rode his five-year-old son’s scooter from Lakemba to Hurlstone Park [5.7 kms] today with a two-fold purpose — to beat the rail strike and win a bet of £1 and 10 schooners. He will have to ride the scooter from his work to the Canterbury Hotel tonight to complete his side of the wager.

If you would like to support my work, you can leave a small ‘bar tip’ here of $2, or several small tips, just increase the amount as you like. Your generous patronage of my work and research, however small it appears to you, will greatly help me with my continuing costs.
