SUNDAY 1st OCTOBER
Our last competition of the year is the Autumn Naviscat. These Naviscats are just
a single step up from the well-known Treasure Hunts, just requiring the knowledge
of how to plot a 6-figure map reference, using a romer or a ruler to locate the clues.
You will need to bring a copy of the Ordnance Survey map 187 – Dorking &
Reigate, 2013 edition.
The start this year is at the Inn on the Green, Ockley, RH5 5TD, where entrants
will sign on from 10.00am, and be given the Final Instructions. The clues will be
handed out at 11.00am, and then there are three and half hours to collect the answers, before
finishing back at the pub at 2.30pm. Lunch will be served, for which entrants need to pre-order their food choices.
Once the clue locations are plotted, the crew make up their own minds as to which route to
take to collect the most points. These are given on the sheet alongside the questions,
which are to be answered once you have arrived at the location. (e.g. how many bolts
on the gate, or name the vicar). The more difficult the location and/or question
determines the score, which range from 1-3 points. More experienced competitors
will try to find the higher-scoring answers. Two and three-point clues will have a suitable
area to park nearby, because you will have to leave your car to find the answer. If
you are a novice it is probably better to visit the one-point “drive-by” locations. There is a prize for the best novice to encourage new entries.
Please note that it is physically impossible to visit every location provided in the
time allowed and only your best 30 answers will be accepted under the rules.
We are combining this event with a round of the Inter Register Club’s
championship, which will see entries from pre-war Rileys, Alvises, Austins,
Humbers and Sunbeams, to add a bit of interest to the proceedings.
We look forward to meeting old friends and newcomers alike for an interesting
day out. The Regulations and entry forms can be downloaded by clicking the buttons below.
