Esentepe Fun, Run And Ramble 2016 – Car Treasure Hunt

Raising money for TULIPS

(Help Those With Cancer)

The third EFRAR Car Treasure Hunt in aid of Help Those With Cancer (Tulips) took place on Sunday 17 January and raised 1410TL for the Association.

The event, which started and finished at Rural uid 648379Cengiz’s Waterfall restaurant near Esentepe, was another success with 9 cars taking part.

This year, Brian Hills, who organises the whole event, changed the format and cars and occupants were sent to different locations around the area, requested to answer questions about that location, then open the envelope and start the hunt using the generic clues set by Mr Hills.

Art Watson, Chairman of EFRAR 2016 said: “The clues were harder this year but the route was very interesting taking in Esentepe, Karaağaç and Alevkaya.  There was also a section on anagram clues which had to be collected en route. These included a water bottle, a snail shell, twenty pine cones, a black olive and pine resin. We didn’t do so well in our car but we had a great time working out the clues and enjoying the scenery as we drove around.” 

The treasure hunt was rounded off with a motoring quiz which was completed by each team as they returned to the restaurant.

The winners were announced as the 5 Musketeers: Janice Harper, Phil Conkie, Sheila Lane, Alison Hatcher and Eddie Çelebi. They were all presented with medals and will receive a winners’ plaque at the EFRAR 2016 Auction and Entertainments’ evening to be held late April. A special mention should be given to the American trio from Karmi for coming in joint second.

Those participants who had booked, enjoyed a two course meal at the restaurant after the event, followed by an auction. The committee wishes to thank Brian Hills for his organisation of the event and Cengiz Meydan and his staff for all their hard work in producing a first class meal.
