What is Treasure Hunt : 

What is Treasure Hunt A treasure hunt is one of many different types of games to find hidden articles, locations or places by using a series of clues. This is a fictional activity. This is a fun activity coducted outdoor traveling in your own car in your own city. The game tests the participants' speed of solving clues (and not speed of the car), intelligence and comprehensive skills. It consists of various teams which compete against each other in search of a treasure. At each stage they are provided with a clue and it is only after they figure it out, that they proceed to the next level which consequently leads them to the final clue in the end. It's just not the interpretation which is important but what makes you a winner is solving clues.

Similarly Edward Jenner, the one who invented vaccination; Simon Lake, who invented first practical Submarine; etc are Freemasons. A worldwide survey revealed that over 800 Freemasons appear on Postage Stamps. And many more…..

Remember… : 

Remember… It is not a racing event. Safety is of utmost importance. Drive carefully. Reach safely. Follow traffic rules. Don’t be in a hurry and be accident prone. Don’t drive as if you own the road. Drive as if you own the car. All team members are advised to wear seatbelts. Drive Carefully but… HAVE FUN!!!

Slide 29: 

The STOP line is for you to stop behind it and not 10 feet after. Respect the traffic light. Stop if the light is amber and it is about to change to red rather than making a desperate dash to get to the other side. The Zebra crossing is for the pedestrians to cross the road and for the vehicles to stop and it is not the other way around. Consider the other vehicles on the road. Understand that even they too have as much right to be on that road as you do. One must move his vehicle only AFTER the timer has reached zero and/or the lights have turned green and not inch his way across the signal after having verified that there are no policemen in sight. And most importantly, drive with common sense.
