Ace Scooters

Ponderings on life, the universe and scooters from WA's only specialised scooter only emporium.

The strangest coincidence...

Like many businesses, we try and support a number of charities and organisations in various ways, but my favourite is our local surf lifesaving club at Mullaloo.  Partly because they were the Australian Surf Club of the year in 2005/2006, but also because we are members and its what I do with the girls on Sunday mornings. 

Over the last three years we've supported the club by providing a scooter as the top prize in the yearly membership raffle.  So what's the coincidence?  Well, on Wednesday the blue and yellow Milan won in 2006 was dropped of for a service to be done for Friday, and the 2008 winner's red Zip 50 came in for its first service on Thursday.  

Well bugger me sideways, because at 9:30 on Thursday we got a call from Peter asking if he could get a service done on our third musketeer, the 2007 winners red Hyosung Rally - and though the diary is full, we had to find a way to squeeze it in just so that we could have all three in the workshop all at the same time.  I guess the planets that control surf club members must have been in some strange conjunction I guess, or maybe they were getting them done before the country carnival - who knows.

But with all these coincidences afoot, it seems prudent that I should go and buy some Lotto tickets...
