Club Treasure Hunt
Please give your name to David Hunns or Steve Sims if you wish to attend. The event will start at the Cambridge Golf and Conference Centre, where we hold our regular club nights. Please arrive at 10:00 for a staggered start at around 10:30, the Clubhouse will be open for refreshments and use of the facilities if required. This year's hunt will be a search for picture clues and will follow quiet rural roads between scenic Cambridgeshire villages. All the objects pictured will be visible from the comfort of your car; all you need to do is plot their location on a map which we will give you. The team / entrant with the most objects correctly plotted, wins (judges' decision is final, etc etc!)! The event will finish 2 hours later at the Queen's Head Pub in Needingworth, where an extensive menu will be available, including at least 2 roasts, a vegetarian option and the usual choice of bar snacks - most dishes are under £10.

We do hope you can join us for a fun, friendly and informal morning of motoring, followed by a noggin and natter!

After the tour we have reserved some tables at the Dog and Doublet Pub near Whittlesey, where we will be sitting down for lunch between 1-1.30pm. I am hoping to get a menu so we can pre-order.
