ORIGINAL INFORMATION

 

I have recently purchased a Surrey treasurehunt by a professional treasure hunt company.

It will involve getting into teams and looking for clues and learning about history and features of places not too far from Guildford/Woking areas of Surrey. (I dont want to give too much away!)

Who: All welcome. This is a treasure hunt involving Rotaractors getting into teams (up to 4). Depending on who is interested in participating, we can either choose teams (suggest 2-4 per team) or put people into teams. It would be good to share local knowledge amongst the teams so hardcore Surreyites are spread evenly! The more mixed the teams the better.

What: teams will be driving around an area of Surrey villages looking for clues. It is not timed so it does NOT encourage speeding or risky driving! Safe driving only! The Hunt will take about 3 hours not including any stops for refreshments - although I suggest a pub lunch at the end! 

There are quiz questions, a cryptic pub round, a picture round and a bonus round.

Costs - free as I bought the pack, apart from any refreshments you purchase en route, but you will need to split petrol costs between you so its fair on the driver.

As I have the pack and have seen the questions I better be the Organiser! Although I have not shared this with Andy so I think he is quite keen to participate if a team will have him?

We could open this up to Cambereley or Woking if the club likes?

 

If this date doesnt work with sufficient numbers...I will change it

Also if weather is appalling, we will need to postpone and could just have pub lunch instead?!

    So I tried calling the anchor the last couple of days, got thru but no tables.

    Any suggestions for Sunday lunch for large group about 2pm ish? Toby carvery or harvester? Nice pub? Can be a meeting point in the Guildford/Woking/dorking area

    All suggestions welcome!

      I'll check on Wednesday at our meeting if that's okay. I think we may have one or two people, but at the moment I'm not sure. May be best to not include us and if we do come perhaps you could tag us on another team? Sorry, we're just busy the night before, so I don't think many if any will be up for it

      1 · October 12, 2013

  • Helen W.

    I might be able to comne to this, will have to see if i can get it off work :)

    October 6, 2013

  • Katie

    Yeah i'd love to come aswell, and can talk to woking about this, :)

    August 30, 2013

  • Helena L.

    Camberley (and Woking!) would be very very welcome. Once I have read through my Organisers Instructions carefully, we will determine a meeting spot to start the hunt!
    Rachel K - I will need to get an idea of numbers nearer the time - and it would be good to mix up teams a little bit to share local knowledge
