Wax on, wax off for charity

PEOPLE literally tore strips off each other at Cape Gloucester on Sunday night.

The Cooktown Crusaders were at it again last weekend, stopping over at Cape Gloucester Resort as part of their annual ride to Cooktown, raising funds for Autism Queensland.

The Crusaders hosted a waxing auction, with people paying money to rip wax strips off certain hairy body parts.

"A few armpits got done; there was fur flying everywhere," Cape Gloucester Resort's Steve Houston said.

Mr Houston himself had a strip of chest hair waxed, setting his wife, daughter and the bar staff at Cape Gloucester Resort back $300.

He was still a little sore the day afterwards.

The Cooktown Crusaders are a group of six motorcyclists who travel from Sarina to Cooktown raising money for Autism Queensland.

They roared into Dingo Beach on their motorbikes around 2pm on Sunday, just in time to catch the end of Whitfunday and sell some raffle tickets.

"I think they raised around $2000 between Whitfunday and Cape Gloucester," Mr Houston said.

The Crusaders left Cape Gloucester for Mission Beach on Tuesday morning, and will arrive in Cooktown on Sunday morning. For more information, head to http://www.cooktowncrusaders.com.
