July 2018 – Treasure Hunt


Treasure Hunt & lunch

on Sunday 8 July 2018

For the last outing of the 2017-2018 year :

 A Car Treasure Hunt

followed by Sunday lunch at a lovely restaurant.



Collect your route plan, clues and questions; and sort out your car sharing if applicable.

Drive for about 45km, stopping at 3 places, with departures staggered to prevent bunching.

Actual driving time about 50 minutes, but with the searching expect about an hour-and-a-half to two hours total.

End up at a restaurant for a convivial meal.

It is NOT a race, but the chance to admire the countryside and explore some pretty villages… and exercise your brain!

No need to bring a map.

There will be a rescue service in case anyone gets lost, so useful to have a mobile phone.

…. and if you have a set of pétanques balls they might be useful to have with you too.


Car sharing

The number of cars is being limited (so as not to disturb village life on a Sunday morning!)

Car sharing is therefore strongly encouraged, and the booking form explains how this will work. [See below under “Booking”]

The restaurant is not far from the starting point so no problem to retrieve your car if you leave it at the start point.



10h00 – 10h45 check in at Le Bas Rocher, St Jean sur Mayenne (home of Liz & Chris Mallinson, mid-way between St Jean sur Mayenne and Montflours on the D250, shown on the map below as L’Âme)
