Technology can offer the chance to improve an event, but sometimes you have ideas that you really should have thought of years ago. In the past we have reported more than once how a Team, charged with adrenaline, has hit the road without realising the first clue was to be found at the Starting Point.
I have long pondered on how to avoid this, so the first challenge for Teams this year was find their Question Sheets. This would determine their order of departure. It worked well, but we still had some who failed to listen to the instruction that they were NOT to depart until they had been flagged away by the Union Jack! We gave Points for being a First Time Team, for being a Team of 2, and for being the first Team in a Make and/or Model of car.
We introduced a fourth Heat, captured elements of the Hunt on video, took a Group Photo of the Teams on each Heat, introduced Rally Plates, Hunt Rally Plate Stickers, mini Trophies for the winners of each Heat, and one to keep for the Winner of the previous years Hunt.

And we had our first Team in an Aston Martin!!!

Much as I love the cars, it is the people who make the Hunt what it is, and this years crop of Novice Hunters were exceptional. We had some real characters, as you will see if you look through the photos on our Facebook page.
It all helped make 2017 the biggest and best Hunt to date!
