Treasure Hunt 2009

The First Lady and the Treasure Hunt

The day of the treasure hunt, 13th of June
An early morning start in a Wetherspoon
The questions based around the river
An ideal chance for a UL dither
Amusing photos increase your score
And museum leaflets even more
Points for unusual drinks – where to go?
To buy team mate Lizzie a J2O?!

The grassing up began at the start of the day
No, I don’t mean the tardis and BNJ
But the poodles cheating, with Lian and Q
And Dave Hills spotted in an ivory canoe
Some teams to a hot air balloon were tied
Whilst others joined in the naked bike ride
A helicopter was used by ‘the randoms’ team
The rule breaking this year was just obscene

For extra points, in case of tie break
A photo on a boat each team had to take
And guess the lunch venue for the organising team
A place they thought they would never be seen
But they picked somewhere en route – foolish I know
And to make it easier sat by the window!

Back to the pub by 5 for a chance to win
And just enough time to get a round in
At least we didn’t get the wooden spoon
But on the podium for us there’s no room
Team members that came third won a duck
But my team came fourth, oh……
And the poodles team, up to old tricks
Won the first prize, it’s a fix, it’s a fix!

But our thanks go to the organisers, Hellen and Jen
The marks we give them – ten out of ten!
