Treasure Hunt and evening meal.
Peter Farley is organising one of his famous Treasure Hunts on September 11, starting from our usual venue of the Deanwater Hotel, but at the earlier time of 6.30 to 7.00pm.
This early start will enable participants to make maximum use of daylight running, and all cars must have departed from the Deanwater by 7.15pm.
The route will be defined by tulip diagrams (with explanations), and will take about an hour to complete.
The precise location of the finish (The Plough at Eaton) will be given out at the start, in case anyone gets lost!
There will be a charge of £5 to enter the event, with all proceeds being donated to the North West Air Ambulance.
A sausage, mash and onion gravy dinner is available at The Plough, prior to awarding prizes to the winners - please notify numbers requiring the meal at the start.
Members who do not wish to take part in the Treasure Hunt are welcome to go directly to the finish (at around 8.15pm), but should notify the organisers if the fixed meal is required. Peter Farley/Chris Clark
