Geocache Description:

25 May 2019, 11:00 - 14:00

As part of the build up to our Mega in 2020, we are holding a series of fundraisers. After our successful launch, we have been searching the county for places to hold other events.
This time we bring you to Hartfield, land of Winnie the Pooh and the famous Pooh Bridge. Now, we don't wish to disrupt people playing Poohsticks, so we are taking you a little further upstream to race some ducks.

Join us from 11am and we plan to start the race at 12 noon. Should demand be great enough, we may have more than one race. Ducks cost just £2 each and there is no limit to how many you can buy. They can be purchased in advance via our online shop up until 2 days before the race. (ALL DUCKS FOR RACE 1 NOW SOLD). So as long we sell all the ducks, which I'm sure we will, the prizes will be:

1st Prize - Full Set of our Brand New Sussex Geocoins (That's all six coins) WOW
2nd prize - Set of 3 Sussex Travel Tags

3rd prize - single Sussex Travel Tag

And if you manage to come last there will be a prize for that too

You don’t need to buy a duck to attend the event; the normal chit chat, TB swapping and a raffle you would expect will be going on too. And you don't have to compete to enjoy a race 😃

If you wish to participate but cannot make the event, you can buy your ducks online and they will be entered into the race. Results will be published on our facebook page immediately and winners not present will be contacted in due course.

We have kindly been granted access to private land for this event, and we are sure you will respect the environment and any specific guidance given by the owner.

Plenty of parking will be available at the event, but access is via a rather small lane off the B2110 Look out for two ducks either side of the entrance to help guide you. The entrance is also listed as a waypoint.
