Car Club Meet 19, a great sign off to a great year!

Car Meet 19 (like Car Meet 17) had to be moved because of the weather to Sunday 20th October, as we welcomed over 40 cars at least to another great meet here at the Cholmondeley Arms. The weather wasn’t as forecasted, as showers hampered proceedings somewhat, but the turnout was fantastic for the time of year! Thank you to everyone who ‘rocked up’. It was great to see familiar faces along with some new cars and owners too. The owners gathered inside the Chum, in the main and enjoyed warming coffees and teas and of course the bacon butties.

The Cars of the Day were Mike and his impressive Ford GT 40, pictured, then Colin and his unique VW Beetle who picked up ‘best in class’ and finally Terry in his amazing Amphicar 770 from 1962 which still doubles up as a boat at 7 miles an hour and a car at 70 miles an hour, hence the numbers after the name! This was ‘Cherished car of the day’.

Pictured as well, are all the cars (hope I didn’t miss anyone!) that kindly joined us for the morning. In the end the sun came out and all was well for the final meet of the season.

I just want to say how very grateful we are, for all the amazing support the car events have had this season. We have seen an array of wonderful cars in all aspects across the pubs, dating back to Veterans and Vintages and many Classics plus of course ‘performance’ and ‘cherished cars’ too. We look forward to some very special events next year. See you all next season. Events will kick of next April 2020.

Tim and the teams.

2019 Bulls Head Treasure Hunt has new winners!

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.

Porsche Reclaim their Crown!!

The Bulls Head 2018 Treasure Hunt went off very well indeed. On a very breezy Saturday (13th October) 13 teams rocked up to have a go at, the now famous, Bulls Head car treasure hunt! The teams had to drive a route that took them to our sister pub the Three Greyhounds Inn via Ollerton and Toft and bring them back via Lower Peover and Knutsford. They had to collect 38 clues while driving carefully around the countryside and they also had to answer 30 very tough quiz questions too. The teams also had to collect five specific objects and also take five photos to bring back. The drive took everyone around two hours.

All the teams arrived back safely and this time round they were welcomed back at our Roebuck Inn to some complimentary nibbles while the papers were marked by Tim and Jess. Everyone made a donation and we raised £100 for St. Wilfrid’s Church here in the village of Mobberley.

In third place were the ‘What the Tuk’ team who did the whole treasure hunt in a tuk tuk!! Their friends ….the ‘Mother Tukkers’, the second tuk tuk on show, were indeed second but the winners this year were the ‘Collins Girls Plus Ant’ in their Porsche Cayman. Well done to them.

This is a third win for the Collins Girls having won the very first Bully Treasure Hunt way back in 2011 and reappearing to win it again in 2014….. now they are, with Ant, the victors again meaning that the Cup goes to the 3P (Porsche, Pub and Pint) Car Club who have regained the trophy back from the Good Fellows Car Club for the first time since 2015!

Thank you to everyone who took part and we look forward to seeing you all in 2019!

GoodFellows Triumph!

Treasure Hunt another success!

Despite the weather we had excellent teams rock up to the 7th Bulls Head Treasure Hunt between The Porsche Pub and Pint Club (3P Club) and the Goodfellows Car Club (Anything but a Porsche Club). The rain came down as the teams set off at 3pm but they were un-phased as they headed on their way in to the Cheshire Countryside to pick up clues and answer their additional quiz questions as well as having to take certain photos on route and collect items too.

Tim the owner was somewhat worried when no one had emerged by 5.15pm but his fears were calmed as each team arrived home from the rain unscathed! As the scoring was completed the teams enjoyed the Bulls Head Traditional Pub Plates and a drink before the winners were announced.

Finishing in third place representing the 3P Club were the ‘Town Lane Farmers’ Julie and Rob and then Cholmondeley Arms regulars Vicki and Tim of ‘The Nerds’ came home in second place leaving the ‘Scooby Doo’s’ Fraser and Jane to finish in first place. The second and first places were filled by Good Fellows meaning this years Treasure Hunt was scooped by the Goodfellows for the second year running!

The top three picked up vouchers to enjoy at the Bulls Head….(and The Church Inn) whilst the coveted trophy, Porsche Mug, Silverstone Race Day (worth £400) and a Good Pub Guide went to the winners as well as £50 of Vouchers to use in Tim’s Mobberley Pubs.

Well done to everyone who competed. It was a close run Treasure Hunt. Here’s to next year….

Good Fellows win at Last…..

Three-P-Club-LogoThe annual Bulls Head Car Club Treasure Hunt has finally been won by the Good Fellows! 8 cars took part in this year’s Treasure Hunt and after five 3p (Porsche Pub and Pint) Car club wins in a row it was the Good Fellows that finally came out smiling!

The winning car a BMW Z4 was driven by ‘the Hairdressers’ ….who else!!? Jonathon and Lindsey were thrilled as they were pipped last year by only half a point!! So they are Treasure Hunt Champions 2016 and accepted the Cup and a Porsche drive experience at Silverstone kindly donated by Martin at Porsche Chester our treasure hunt sponsors.

Goodfellow5-Car-Club-LogoTeams also had to answer 20 very tough quiz questions while attempting to pick up 50 clues. I would like to thank all the teams for taking part.

Second place went to last year’s champs Fraser and Jane of the Scooby Doos who were beaten by their old rivals winning a rather nice Porsche wine stopper.

In third place were ‘Team Candy’ all the way from Cholmondeley winning a pair of Porsche baseball hats.

Congratulations to all the teams that took part but particularly the Hairdressers pictured with the cup presented by owner Tim.

See you all next year.

Bulls Head treasure hunt won by 3P Car club for the fifth year!!

Club-LogoThe day was wet (initially) but we still had enough teams to make a good day of it. At 3pm the teams assembled for the annual Bulls Head Treasure Hunt which, as tradition would have it, is between the Good Fellows Car Club and the Porsche Pub and Pint (3P) Club.

The treasure trail took the cars off towards our sister pub the Church Inn (also in Mobberley) and a dash round the graveyard of St. Wilfrid’s Church and then off to Wilmslow, Mottram, Alderley Edge picking up clues as they went.

Teams also had to answer 40 quiz questions while picking up clues. I would like to thank our business partners the Cheshire Smokehouse, our Log and landscape gardeners (and a lot more) Paul and Rick at Caddis and the Foden Lane Nursery and of course our very own Church Inn for allowing the teams to run around their domains picking up clues!!

GF-LogoThe overall winners in the end were Fraser and Jane of the Scooby Doos who beat off a brilliant challenge by Jonathan and Lindsay of the ‘Hairdressers’ team by half a point! Literally never has a ‘Good Fellow’ club team come so close to ensuring the Good Fellows a win overall.

In third place were the Targa Twosome Phil and Roger all the way from Cholmondeley! They delivered the highest treasure hunt score but slipped up on the quiz….no smart phone apparently!!

Anyway congratulations to all the teams that took part but particularly the Scooby Doos (pictured) with their prize which was kindly donated by Martin from Porsche Chester. The prize was a Porsche Drive Day at Silverstone and of course the cup which will be engraved in the 2015 winners names.

Next year the Treasure Hunt will be moved to late September to avoid holidays etc.

Dead Heat for first as 3p Club win overall!!



It was a good day weather wise as the cars arrived promptly at 3pm for the 4th Annual ‘Head to Head’ Treasure Hunt between the Bulls Heads two car teams, the 3P (Porsche Pub and Pint Club) and the Good fellows Car Club.

Previously the 3P team had won all three annual Head to Heads…would today be different? All teams set off on an excellent run planned exceptionally well by Sophie. There were quiz questions to answer as well as picture rounds while the teams had to find the clues en-route!!

Every team arrived back safely and intact. The scoring was done and I have to say everyone had an excellent run round and scored very well.

In the end there was a dead heat on the overall scores so it went to tie breaker and amazingly on 25 answers used for the tie breaker the two teams couldn’t be separated, so a ‘dead heat’ was declared!!

The two winning teams were the Good Fellows ‘Husbands Team’ and the 3P Club ‘Collins Girls’! Well done to both…the ‘Husbands’ were camera shy but the Collins Girls namely Lucy was proud to hold the trophy aloft.

Taking the top four cars in to account the 3P Club won the treasure hunt for the fourth time in a row but this has to be the closest competition yet. The Scooby do’s were third and the Eager Beevers fourth.

Thank you to Soph for all the hard work and to all the teams that took part and here’s to next year!!
