It is with great pleasure, we return to Findo Gask, this time for a Punch Hunt.
The site is well liked by many, with lots of great memories, however we haven’t used it in a few years. Described as a long, narrow grass site, with plenty of trees and lots of nooks and crannies for sections to keep you entertained – think a mixture between Law & Lamancha and you’ll arrive at Findo Gask.
On the day, there will be punches (see picture below) set out around the site. You will be given a laminated card attached to your wing mirror (you can choose which). Upon finding a punch, you simply get your wing mirror close enough to punch the corresponding box on the card. You will also be given a handheld card to be kept in the vehicle for you to use if you find a certain punch too difficult. Sound easy?
There are two types of punch – GREEN, suitable for all vehicles and RED which is slightly more difficult and may require some thinking – which is where the handheld card may come in useful.
Scoring is 2 points for every correct RED and 1 point for every GREEN.
This event is open to all types of 4×4, however a full driving licence must be held by the driver.
Punch Hunts are a great day out for all the family, keeping everyone occupied looking for the punches – it always helps to have a passenger if you need to send them through some mud to get the RED punches!
