A favourite event amongst those usually occupying passenger seats, Mark and Sue McKibbin’s Treasure Hunts are slow paced, scenic and cryptic. With over 40 questions to answer whilst travelling the back roads around the Neerim district, the ten participating teams crossed paths, U-turned, backtracked, lied and gave false hopes – they even searched cemeteries for that elusive answer. It’s fortunate for some that no time limit was imposed as several teams were quite late arriving at the lunch venue, Jindivick’s Kydd Park Reserve & Cricket Ground.
After much debate and objections to the syntax of some answers, Pam and Glenn Campbell (BMW M3) were awarded first place with a draw for the runners-up position between Karen and Steve Austen (MGBGT) and Celia and Mal Collins in their new Hyundai i30 N. In fact there may have been other teams also sharing second place, but after the forms were shuffled and marked by the competitors, some forms weren’t handed back – the results beyond first place are therefore a bit iffy!
Thank you to Mark and Sue for organising another challenging event.
