OK treasure hunters, get ready for THE charity event of the autumn.
Following the great success of the RIBnet Conference Treasure Hunt in June organised superbly by Daniel and Kevin, we would like to invite you and your family to a fun day of solving clues, hunting for REAL treasure, oh, and RIBBING, of course!
The emphasis is very much on FAMILY FUN
so we hope, nay EXPECT, you to bring along your children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews. If you don't have any then beg or borrow some (but please don't kidnap any!
). Fun treasure will be awarded to every child (if they solve the fiendishly difficult clue!
) and a prize/trophy will be awarded to the winning team. We're not sure what it is yet, but it'll be great!!!
For those of you for whom it's the WINNING that matters, extra points will be awarded per crew member for wearing pirate-themed fancy dress. (But as we are hoping you will join us for drinks in the pub after, it may be advisable to bring a change of clothes!
This must-attend event will take place on Saturday 4th September
with Sunday 19th in reserve in case the weather is unsuitable. The Treasure Hunt will last for one whole day. Start and end points, the lunch stop venue and timings will be confirmed later.
It is a charity
event so we will be asking every skipper to make a modest minimum donation as an entry fee. The receiving charity, nominated by John Kennett, is GAFIRS , the Gosport and Fareham Independent Lifeboat and Rescue Service.
So PLEASE sign up on this thread and pencil the dates into your diary and let's make this a huge, fun event for everyone.
