Who’s up for a Halloween Green Roads trip with a difference?
And this time there won’t be any groups as you’ll be leading yourselves, because this will be…………a treasure hunt.
It won’t just be open to yourselves as DLRC members, Dorset Land Rover Club is a GLASS affiliated club and so local GLASS members will also be participating.
I have planned an easy and straight-forward route to follow (which many of you may well find familiar) comprising greenroads and tarmac roads.
You shall receive this route electronically as a ViewRanger mapped route.
If you run OS MemoryMap, I believe that ViewRanger routes can be converted to a gpx.file and copied across.
If you have neither then I guess I’ll have a lot of typing to do…..
For safety reasons and to prevent large groups roaming the countryside after dark, you will set off at staggered intervals in pairs of vehicles, each vehicle will have an A4 sheet of questions to answer from clues you will hopefully spot along the route.
There will also be an optimum time for the treasure hunt, too fast or too slow will incur time penalties which, along with any incorrect answers, will affect your final score.
The best overall score will win a prize.
The best fancy dress will win a prize.
The best dressed vehicle will also win a prize.
An impartial judge will select the winners.
There is no entrance fee to participate, although a donation of just £5/vehicle will be mandatory, all proceeds of which will go to the ‘Mosaic’ childrens charity. Mosaic is a Dorset-wide charity offering support and guidance to bereaved children, young people and their families.
The Treasure Hunt will start at around 18:00hrs and will conclude at a licensed premises for a noggin and natter whilst the marking of sheets and judging takes place.
I can’t say how long you’ll be because that will give the optimum time away, but if you’re not in the pub by 21:00hrs we’ll send out a search party!
If you’d like to participate, please respond by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
All the best,
