Dave Thistlethwaite invites you to attend this year’s treasure hunt.
Format of the day
Meet at Fox Valley shopping centre. The postcode is S36 2AB but if you type this into Google you will end up miles away for some reason so watch out – the first challenge is to find the start point!
The actual meeting point will be the Central Bean coffee shop which is just inside the car park, near the fountains, from 10am.
The cars will depart at roughly 1 minute intervals to avoid bunching, starting at 10:45. The route takes in some spectacular views and local landmarks so even if you don’t get all the answers you should still enjoy the run.
There is a midway stop at Yummy’s ice cream parlour. (HD8 8XY) where we will have a dedicated parking area and possibly tea & coffee in the barn (awaiting confirmation) but otherwise join the queue for one of their famous ice creams. It can be very busy on a Sunday so I’m allowing up to 1 hour here which gives the stragglers time to catch up and regroup before setting off again for the second leg.
The end point is The Golden Cock at Farnley Tyas (HD4 6UD) where we have their function room reserved and we will be treated to an afternoon tea style buffet (£9.25 per head) whilst the question papers are marked and the winner announced. There will be a prize for first and second places.
We have to limit the run to 20 cars max.
