Harpers Hunt         

Pussy Galore...

 

After adding various elements over the years, in 2016 we went back to basics - a short route with fewer clues and an earlier finish. No theme, no fancy dress, and just a few Challenges. We attracted more Teams than ever, which meant we had to get a bigger Results board. Even that wasn't big enough!

 

The Hunt once again took place over three Sunday Heats and we had a total turnout of 29 Teams with a good mix of first-timers and old-hands. After years of trying, we had our first-ever Team in a new MINI (and our second-ever in a Classic Mini), a Morris Minor, a Triumph TR6, a Mazda MX5 (we had two!), a TVR and a Sunbeam Tiger. We had three more cats: a Jaguar XF and two Kittens (our first Reliant's, one of which was our furthest Traveller this year, coming 160 miles all the way from Burton-on-Trent in Staffordshire!) We had our second-ever Stag which was also the second-ever one-man team to attempt the Hunt.
