Navigational Scatter Rallies

Scatter rallies are a wonderful way to have a few hours of competitive entertainment


Each entry requires a driver a navigator and a car. Also required is an ordinace survey map (about £3 from ebay) a pencil, ruler, rubber and for most of us older generation a magnifying glass is a good optional extra.

Each team a given around 20 to 25 plots to find on the map and they must then choose a selection of around 15 to 20 to visit in as short a route as possible. At each plot on the route the team need to solve a small clue and record the answer.

The winners are the team that get the most clues correct in the shortest mileage recorded.

The 2014 Jubilee Scatter Rally

Again we had a great yet hectic day to say the least. Many entrants ran very late in an attempt to get all the clues solved whilst others managed to get to the pub for lunch. Whatever they all did very very well but there could only be one winning team and that was our great friends /Simon and Pauline


Here are a few shots of the day.

Well done to them and everyone else who tried
