Thanks to Dave Kirk for spending a lot of time tramping round Duthie Park and Ferryhill noting down numbers and details on various objects for us to collect on today’s Treas-O-re Hunt. (Presumably he must have worn his best puffa jacket so as not to look too dodgy as no reports in the P&J about suspect looking characters spotted in the area staring intently at burglar alarms.)
Other than Start and Finish no controls out but instead a list of questions related to controls on the map with multiple choice answers which we had to mark with a pin. Only one injury reported and that was with the non-pointy end apparently. (?!)
