Numbers were lower than normal at tonight’s Trail Quest, but the rain held off and the teams enjoyed a variety of clues in the slightly hillier terrain west of Balloo.
Peter Burrows was a welcoming host at the Conservatory in Balloo. Many thanks to him for staying open late for us.
The teams were very close tonight (apart from EB Skeleton Crew, who were 90 points clear despite getting a 50 point penalty for being late back. Even Barry is suggesting the need for a handicap system to level the playing field…)
The club spared no expense on the prizes…
