Hidden Hermitages Rally 25 May 2014

Well the early morning weather looked very threatening, but fortunately the day turned out to be extremely warm and very sunny. 27 members and guests took part in the event which was set by Sue and myself. The task that was presented to the entrants was to locate seven individual Hermitage locations and answer questions about each one. There was no order to the rally and each contestant could choose and decide on his or her own route. In the event of a tie-break the winner would be the one with the lowest mileage/kilometers reading. Although Hans Peter Dinseng came in 2nd place, as he was driving a modern vehicle, he unfortunately could not be awarded a prize, so 2nd place was awarded to Robert & Jane Klevenhagan driving their Mercedes Convertible. The 1st place prize was awarded to HB Escher, whose Co Pilot on this occasion was JP Allemann, a very professional duo! As a point of interest, the allocated mileage was 60 miles and HB achieved a total of 58.5 miles! In closing an excellent “Mallorcan” style lunch was held at the Can Mateu restaurant in Algaida where three courses, wine, coffee and a digestive were enjoyed. To all those who attended, we both hope that you enjoyed yourselves.
