Great turn out for the car treasure hunt

Monday night saw 13 cars full of treasure hunters go head to head in trying to become the Hookfest treasure hunt champions. Cars returned with bags full of treasures and lots of smiling faces, all sure that they would be on the winning team. 

It ended up a deat heat on scores with the Sommervilles taking this year’s title having completed the course just .2 miles over the target of 12.8 miles. They were also the only team to find all 7 of the post boxes on route, which was a great achievement as at least 3 of them were only visible if you had eyes in the back of your head, so well done guys.

Having checked, checked and checked again that all the clues made sense and all the question papers printed I looked on in horror as a skip had appeared in the school during the day, covering part of the answer to the first clue. I did manage to fox all teams with a double faced clock much to the disgust of all ?.

All teams did really well with just a few points between all teams and £73 was added to the play park fund at the end of the night.

Thanks to all who took part and also to all for the donations of the raffle prizes. Special thanks to Andrew Thomas for going over the route with me and helping out on the night.

Be warned next time I’m going to throw in a couple of stinkers and like this time you will need eyes in the back of your heads.
