Postby carrierbag » Tue Dec 19, 2017 2:08 pm

SUNDAY, 7th January is the date for the fifth consecutive Car Treasure Hunt held as one of the major events leading up to the Sunday, April 16th Esentepe Fun, Run and Ramble 2018 supporting Tulips.

The event will be run by Brian Hills and hosted by Stevie’s restaurant at Küçük Erenköy which will also be the registration and starting point. Participants are requested to arrive at Stevie’s around 11.00am to register ready to set off by 12noon.

Entries will be 50TL per car, all which will be donated to EFRAR 2018 supporting Tulips. There is a maximum 4 persons per vehicle for health and safety reasons.

Like last year, the start will be staggered with some people doing 'observations' in Stevie's Bar while others set off.

The event consists of 3 elements - an observation test, treasure hunt and quiz.

This event is not a race but is designed to be fun, with some skilful driving, map reading and clue solving.

About 4.30pm, Stevie will be offering a “Treasure Hunt” two-course Sunday roast of a main meal and either a starter or pudding, for just TL45 per person, with a donation going to EFRAR 2018 supporting Tulips, which MUST be pre-booked. Call Stevie on 0533 8494744 to book your place on the Treasure Hunt and to book your lunch.

This event promises to be a fun, challenging way to spend a winter Sunday so come along and support EFRAR 2018 supporting Tulips. (242)

The fifth consecutive Car Treasure Hunt held on Sunday 7 January raised TL1,580 as part of the run up to the annual Esentepe Fun, Run and Ramble 2018, supporting Tulips.

The event, run by Brian Hills, and hosted by Stevie’s restaurant in Küçük Erenköy, was a great success with 15 cars taking part. Mr Hills ensured that it was even more challenging than last year with participants having to solve anagrams to identify things to collect on the way. There was also an observation test at Stevie’s bar and a motoring qui.

With a staggered start the course was estimated to take two hours with numerous clues and anagrams to solve. One clue, specifically for the driver, necessitated the driver reading a specific clue then asking just one question which turned out to be “Are you Rose”. If the right question was asked of the right person then the driver was given a lollipop to bring back to gain a bonus five points.

The course took participants out to Tatlisu, Çinarli then Malindaģ finally ending up back at the restaurant.

The winners were the Muskateers comprising, Eddie Çelebi, Alison Hatcher, Phil Conkie and Janice Harper scoring 140 out of 154 points to pip runners-up, the Esentepe Allstars, by a single point.

Restaurant owner Steve Stockwell hosted the start and finish of the event and provided a donation to Tulips from a roast Sunday lunch for 38 people as well as providing raffle prizes and music.

Mary Watson, Chair of EFRAR 2018 commented: “Once again this was a great event and the weather was perfect for a run out in the countryside. The clues were diverse and a knowledge of Steptoe and Son and the 1980’s quiz show, Blockbusters, certainly helped.

Our thanks go to Brian Hills, Steve and Linda Stockwell and staff at Stevie’s Restaurant for their donation and use of their premises, all participants and supporters. These events are not only fun but help to raise vital funds for Tulips.
