Running a walkabout

Having won the South Oxon Car Club walkabout / treasure hunt in 2021, it meant it was down to us to organise the 2022 event.

We decided to run it in Bicester, as it was easy for us to get to and hopefully accessible for fellow club members. We needed to be able to get there easily on week nights to plan the event, and with a quiet high street and free parking we thought it would work well. It only took one evening in Bicester to plan which was a bonus, having set aside a couple of evenings to go there.

We set 50 questions of varying levels of difficulty, and Matt checked them quickly on the night before we started. The answers were all on signs, shop windows, drain covers or higher up and all bar one question worked, so the scores were out of 49. Instead of setting tie break questions, we said the tie break would be who completed it the quickest if teams tied on number of points.

Six crews turned out with the winning score being 48 out of 49. Matt had told me some of my questions were too hard and I was a little apprehensive seeing people taking time for the first few answers, but it worked!

Example – who do you ask about medicines? Kay!
