Chum Car Club Treasure Hunt 2018

Phil and Molly this years winners with landlord Tim

Our Annual Car Club Treasure Hunt was a great success, 11 competitive teams set off in to the Cheshire countryside to enjoy picking up clues, a few photos and objects along the way too!

This year the trophy and Silverstone Porsche Day, donated by our Treasure Hunt sponsors Porsche Chester, was won by Phil and Molly, team ‘Chum Porsche’

Second place went to ‘The Cooper Troopers’ with Andy and Claire coming in a very close second place and winning a well deserved voucher to spend in the pub!

And as the race was so close we had a joint third prize, which was awarded to the ‘No Hopers’ and ‘Cheese Pie’. It was a great day, the weather held off and was enjoyed by all!

This now marks the end of the Car Club season here at Cheshire Cat Pubs…..we have really enjoyed hosting the three treasure hunts and they have been the best attended ever. Here’s to next year’s Car Meets, Safari’s and Treasure Hunts. Thank you for all your support and enthusiasm at all our pub Car events.

Fourth Car Meet of the year another success…..

Thank you to all our car enthusiasts who joined us for Car Meet 13 on Sunday July 22nd here at the Cholmondeley Arms our fourth of the year.

It was great to see more new faces in addition to our loyal following of Car Club Members. Quite a few Porsches made it for a little recognition of the 70th anniversary of Porsche.

All of the cars that featured on the day can now be seen on the ‘Past Events’ page on the Car Club pages on the Cholmondeley Arms website www.cholmondeleyarms.co.uk. Tim the owner of the Cholmondeley Arms and Tim the landlord of the Cholmondeley Arms were once again on hand to recruit 10 new members and to take photos of the cars on show.

Landlord Tim chose his ‘Porsche of the Day’, ‘Best Car in Class’ and ‘Cherished Car’ of the Day.

Congratulations to Tony who’s white 911 996 GT2 won Porsche of the Day against many other great Porsches present.

Best Car in Class went to Stephen with his Morgan 3 wheeler and ‘Cherished Car’ of the Day went to Steve with his 1986 Citroen 2CV. Each received Gift Cards and for Porsche owner Tony a special framed picture celebrating the development of the famous 911 presented by owner Tim.

It isn’t easy choosing winners on the day as there were so many great examples with a few vintage, plenty of classics, certainly some sports performance cars, as well as some great examples of cars that are truly cherished.

There will be one further car meet towards the end of August….. date to follow… where we will be giving each car club member attending a special ‘Passport’ to get stamped as they drive the six pubs of Cheshire Cat! This will be briefed in more detail later but was the idea of one of our members and it’s a cracking one!

We will also be working on some decent drive out days for next year too as we now have another member who is keen to start this with our support.

Please also look out for the ‘Car Treasure Hunts’ in late September and early October which are great fun especially the Porsches versus the Rest at the Bulls Head in Mobberley! Dates will follow.

Once again thank you for attending.

Kind regards

Tim and Tim

Cholmondeley Car Meet Season gets off to a cracking start!

Thank you to all the car enthusiasts who joined us for Car Meet 12 on Sunday (April 29th) at the Cholmondeley Arms.

It was great to see new faces in addition to our loyal following of Car Club Members. We welcomed an excellent mix of cars on the day and some 70 cars turned up on a chilly but dry day which gets the car meet season off to a great start.

Most of the cars that featured on the day can now be seen on the ‘Past Events’ page on the Car Club pages on the Cholmondeley Arms website www.cholmondeleyarms.co.uk. Tim the owner of the Cholmondeley Arms and Tim the landlord of the Cholmondeley Arms (we try and keep it easy on the names!!) were on hand to recruit 15 new members and to take photos of the cars on show.

Owner Tim chose his ‘Car of the Day’ and ‘Best Car in Class’.

Congratulations to Lee with his beautiful blue MGA 1959 Mark 1 who took the ‘Best Car in Class’ and to Hugh and Sue who took ‘Car of the Day’ with their very rare 1985 E24 BMW M6 in truly amazing condition. They both picked up gift vouchers to use at the Cholmondeley Arms or one of our other pubs in Mobberley or Allostock.

It was very difficult choosing winners on the day as there were so many great examples with a few vintage, plenty of classics, certainly some sports performance cars, as well as some great examples of cars that are truly cherished. Tim promises to make sure his car is a little cleaner next time!!

Car Club member Malcolm invites you to a ‘classic car breakfast meet’ on 20th May (details below) and we will be back with our next events on the Car Club events page as soon as we have fixed the dates.

Once again thank you for attending.
Kind regards

2017 Chum Treasure Hunt.

Despite a really horrid day weather wise 6 brave teams rocked up for a challenging car treasure hunt around the lanes of the Cholmondeley Estate. Storm Brian ensured conditions weren’t easy but the teams excelled with some great efforts to ensure they picked up some difficult clues. Coupled with excellent answers on the quiz questions as well as the hunt itself the teams scored well.

The clear winners by the end of the marking by Tim (the judge) were the Valentino’s!!! Pictured at the bar with the trophy and their Porsche driving experience. Well done team Valentino’s and big thanks to all the other teams that took part. In second place were the Larden Green Losers with the Cholmondeley Chasers in third! Here’s to the next hunt at the Fitzherbert Arms this coming Saturday.

Chum Treasure Hunt ends in a draw…..

treasThe annual Cholmondeley Arms Car Treasure hunt had a record number of teams with the weather looking good! Quiz questions about the Cholmondeley Arms and the Car Club as well as a car picture quiz all had to be completed as well as the active treasure hunt itself! There were 85 points to get and by the end two teams couldn’t be separated!
Teams called ‘No Idea’ and ‘Team Chumps’ seem to defy their team names by bagging 65 points each as the Cup and Cholmondeley Arms gift vouchers were shared for the first time!!
Well done to all who took part! See you next year!!
