Well another excellent turn out again for the last treasure Hunt. 12 crews out, with the start and finish at Skylark near Wellington. It was good too see so many club members out. Yet another different winner this week. That makes 6 different winners out of 7 events. The points are still close at the top with only 7 points between 1st and 2nd place now that dropped scores are coming into play. Start and finish venue for the last round will be confirmed by Thursday.
The points position will be posted shortly on here and facebook

Five crews tactled the first navigational scatter on Friday 2nd December. Four of the crews had novice navigators and hopefully this will encourage some more club members to come out for the next one which will be in the early part of 2012. Thanks to Jason Price and Gareth Andrews for organising the event. A lot of effort goes into putting on event like this so we need as many club members who can, to participate to support and encourage organisors.
