PH South West Mendips Treasure Hunt - Sunday November 18th - 12 Noon

Meeting at The Castle of Comfort pub on the B3134 at 12 Noon. Postcode BS40 6DD.

The pub has a children's play area and decent food.

The route will take about an hour and a half to 2 hours.

---

I have devised a treasure hunt around the good, fun roads of the Mendip hills to get us all out and about.

The answers will be fairly easy to find and most of them you can spot from the car as you're driving. Some require a tiny bit more effort. There's no tiny lanes or cryptic clues: just a fun blast around collecting information.

Navigating
You may benefit from a navigator and a sat nav. There will be a full directions sheet with postcodes to help you out. Most answers are found near a safe place to stop.

Prizes
A bottle of wine or something will be awarded to the top three teams.

Points are awarded for each correct answer on the main treasure hunt.

There is also a few additional car-related trivia and puzzles to bump up your score if you can't be bothered to get all the answers along the drive.


If you don't fancy the drive, come out and stay at the pub with us for a chat.


Hopefully see you there,

Graham & Nicky

Good idea vote from me! Used to do loads when I was a kid as the gliding club I went to had an annual one. And 2 years ago I did one with lots of very nice cars hooning around the Berkshire countryside like demented flies. If theres anyone who hasn't done one before, its more fun than you'd think!

Sounds great. Maybe you could get Umair up here and carry on your flirting in person.

Umair will only say he wants to come and then have another pressing engagement when the date nears. I've been stood up so many times.
