CYCLE TREASURE HUNT
Eleven Treasure Hunters gathered to cycle around the Littlemoor and Sutton Poyntz areas gathering clues and refuelling at four pubs on the way. This was followed by a BBQ at BOF and Organgrinder’s house.
One question was to count the number of propeller blades on the three torpedoes making up Torpedosaurus near the Park and Ride. Rosie had great trouble do this despite his military experience. First he counted 26, then 27 and finally 28. The second team members made the count 26. The correct answer is 28 so why the huge problem?
BOF’S BORING BITS
The torpedoes are Mark 8 Mod 4 weapons which were designed in the 1920s and were still in service with the Royal Navy into the 1980s. They were the torpedoes used with great success throughout World War 2 and were used to sink the Argentinian Light Cruiser “General Belgrano” off the Falklands in 1982.
First refuelling stop at The Bridge Inn.
Conferring at The Spyglass - the fourth pub. Heads were getting a bit fuzzy by then!
