The Bulls Head 2019 Treasure Hunt went off very well indeed. On a rather damp Saturday (28th September) 11 teams turned up to fight it out for the honour of becoming the Bulls Head Treasure Hunt Champions and scoop the first prize, which this year was…..a Porsche Cayman or Boxster for 24 hours!
The teams had to drive a route that took them out towards Ashley before heading back via Rostherne to Knutsford and then Mobberley. We weren’t blessed with many Porsches this year, with the weather probably playing a part. So the Good Fellows had a strong field indeed. The three-times winning Collins Girls couldn’t make it this year to defend their trophy, so this left other favourites the ‘Scooby Doo’s’ to take a possible steal in their absence! The teams had to collect 51 clues whilst driving carefully around the countryside and they also had to answer 30 very tough (and humorous) quiz questions too. The teams also had to take five photos to bring back featuring lots of red things. The drive took everyone around one and a half hours.
All the teams arrived back safely and took in the Bulls Head atmosphere, while the papers were marked by Tim and Mary. Everyone made a donation of £10 a car and we raised £110 for St. Wilfrid’s Church here in the village of Mobberley.
In third place were, twice previous Champions, the ‘Scooby Doo’s’ team in their Abarth! In second place just one point behind the champions were ‘Murphy’s Law’ in their classic Porsche 911. The Champions this year were ‘Team Eddo’. In their Volvo 590. They are pictured with the coveted trophy which will have their team name inscribed on and will be on show in the Bulls Head for the rest of the year.
Since the very first Bully Treasure Hunt, way back in 2011, the hunt has always been about the rivalry between the 3P (Porsche Pub and Pint) Club and the Good Fellows Car Club and this year the trophy went back to the Good fellows as Porsche finished second on the day. We need more Porsches next year please!!
Thank you to everyone who took part it was great fun seeing everyone and we look forward to seeing you all in 2020 for the special 10th Anniversary edition!
We would like to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you to Porsche Chester for putting up the most marvellous prize for the Treasure Hunt. I am sure the winning team will enjoy it.
