Perfect night for rambling

Tonight’s trail quest was great fun, with thirty competitors split across thirteen teams getting 90 minutes to look for clues in the mid-peninsula area. Conditions were perfect – warm sunshine and virtually no wind. Headquarters were at The Lane Coffee Hut who kindly opened late to accommodate us (and the club generously funded light refreshments – thank you 🙂 ).
