High Peak Noggin Run

Post by ScimmyMike » Sun Oct 03, 2010 11:30 pm

As the current noggin attendees will be aware I have been planning for some time a reliability /treasure/ navigation run, well I've finally polished it off and am planning to run one Sunday in October.

Can any members of the noggin who would like to go on it please let me know, and for that matter anyone else in the High Peak / Lancashire / Cheshire / Derbyshire area or, for that matter anyone else, it will be of course based around what is known as the White Peak with nice roads, scenic views hopefully good weather and no police choppers!

It will consist of a map being given to participants with points marked on it, there are questions for each point that will require you to visit and obtain the answer to, the winner will be the participant who manages to
A) get all the questions right,
B)travel the shortest distance in doing so, and finally
C) make it back without the aid of outside intervention (you know what I mean) :lol:

In the case of a draw there will be a tie break quiz for those involved, that part remains secret until I need to use it.

Dates are any Sunday in October with the most popular date winning, we are hoping to finish at a suitable hostelry for food and drink.

Mike

As much as I'd love to join in, I'm spending the next few weekends ferrying no.1 Daughter to various universities. I just hope she picks a cheap one !

Anyway, Xmas meal sounds like a good idea !

Cheers

Steve,
I sympathise with you on that score, that will be me in 3 years time I guess eek!

Anyone got any suggestions rearding what they would like for a xmas celebration, are we talking
meal & beer (cheaper option),
or dinner & dance somewhere (the more expensive option)

Mike

In these current wallet squeezing times I reckon a meal and beer is a perfect option, all I'm missing are some suitable venues :shock:

If any one knows of anywhere which is god value and will take a party of 15 to 20 people then please let me know (or better still, become our christmas secretary and get it booked :wink: )

cheers, Matt

So the date is set as 31st October, think we'll excuse Mr Cork on this occasion as hit super shiny GTC wouldn't be ready and we can't have him turning up in a German metal can :lol:s
I'll look for a pub to finish in which has a good menu, good beer and a decent sized car park, oh and speak to the Landlord and maybe do a bit of 'market research' on the food and beer front, least that's what I'll be telling the wife :wink:
All I need now is numbers of people so I can arrange for the maps and clue sheets to be printed.
Mike

Oh and go on Matt I'll do the xmas lunch arranging, you've something a bit larger scale to organise yourself, I will look into what's available for beer and food, would anyone have a preference? maybe late December, whenever we can get in I guess, I'll put some thoughts together with a list of potential venues for the next noggin to discuss
