The SVVS Treasure Hunt  - March 2011

The 2010 Treasure Hunt was won by cheating foursome of Jackie & Simon Pearce together with Madeleine & Steve Brooks who got together in Martha the Monster Siddeley being hyper completive, and eventually winning. The normal punishment for such an offence is to organise the next year's run. Fortunately early on in Jackie's grumps about no one ever having told her (presumably it is only Simon who reads the Mag), Tony Tester, - he of the organisers of a couple of previous runs, volunteered to organise 2011. Couldn't see Jackie for dust !!

However not all was sweetness and light because Tony decided to get even with all of us by setting the starting point as The Prince of Wales in Wescott (just this side of Lands End) at the abysmally early time on a Sunday Morning of 10 o'clock.

The concept of the event was a non-timed non-competitive drive between a number of villages in no specific order, where it was then necessary to park, get out of the car and walk about the village to find all the clues. The questions this year were around Holmbury St Mary, Abinger Common, Coldharbour, and Capel. Relatively easy and great fun although bit much to think of noting signs on a specific manhole cover.

Lunch had been pre booked by Tony at the Lamb at Lamb’s Green, which is a bit of a Tardis when it came to space. The service was very good and quick and food good value. During Lunch Tony did the count-up and the tradition was upkept for a further year by the winners being a carload of cheats driven around by Robing Vince. However they were too cowardly to put up with the probable ensuing flack that they ceded victory to the best ‘twosome’ of Madeleine & Steve Brooks.   Er yes, ... them wot won last year with Pearces. This would seem to suggest that the Pearces were somewhat superfluous last year, -  or something?
