HOUDINI OF TREASURE HUNTS

Extracted from THS Tulip newsletter (Jan-Mar 2015 Edition)
Houdini of Treasure Hunts

WITH THE hunt of Soroptimist International Club of Bangsar (SICB) on 1st Nov 2014, the day after Halloween night, hunters may rightly ponder whether this could yet be another trick or treat! Would there be any more magic potions left in the COC’s bubbling cauldron to mesmerize the participants?
 
SICB Hunt with a Heart has increasingly become a signature event for VK Chong to showcase his cryptic trickery. Being his only open annual event in the Hunt Calendar, he certainly stopped at nothing to pull Bugs Bunny out of his trademark cap to hoodwink the hunters.

DOWN THE HUNT MEMORY LANE 2014

The Year in Retrospective

Well…another year finally ends! As the curtain falls on 2014, let’s glance back at yet another amazing year of treasure hunts. With more than 70 events, hunters could really pick and choose when it comes to treasure hunting.


Whether these were purely the cryptic type, or hunts with challenges; whether these were for learning purpose (such as THS Gold hunts) or the ones with grand prizes (such as NST Motor Hunt 2014); whether these were just walk hunts or inter-state overnight adventures, everyone would have their favourite precious moments.

For the major hunts, we have the usual NST Motor Hunt 2014 (which offered a bigger grand prize this time), TNT Charity Hunt 2014, Kiwanis Charity Hunt 2014 and even TopGear Treasure Hunt 2014. There were also several World Cup-related hunts during 2014.

Check out here as HNN highlighted here a list of Top 10 memorable hunt moments in 2014!

As usual, HNN has put together some statistical data about treasure hunts during 2014.
On record, HNN has noted 75 hunts during the year, with the highest number of hunts (9) in June, August and November.

TOWER 2 TOWER EXPLORACE 2014 - News


Tower 2 Tower Explorace 2014 certainly lived up to its tagline "Perlumbaan Mencabar"!

The participants had to endure a 10.5-hour, 480km journey, which took them to various places of interest and grueling tasks. Not for the faint-hearted, they had to perform several fear-factor challenges such as flying fox, abseiling, hunt in Gua Tempurung and of course, a hand-holding act of slithery nature.
The pictures below gave a glimpse what it was like.

More pictures (winners & some Q&A) and review to come soon!!!

Extracted from TopGear magazine (Dec 2014 edition)

THE FUN YOU MISSED  

TopGear Treasure Hunt 2014 a success?
You bet! Participants plunder Malacca for over RM80,000 worth of prizes.
 


Nearly a week before the TopGear Treasure Hunt 2014 kicked off, a briefing session was held for by event partner Timeout Solutions to lay the ground rules and competition details to the already eager participants. A good portion of the presentation was used to explain how the clues could be deciphered, and one example was all it took to make us breathe a sigh of relief for being on the organizing side of the fence.

HOW TO AUGMENT YOUR HUNT EXPERIENCE?

Extracted from THS Tulip newsletter (Oct - Dec Edition 2014)
How To Augment Your Hunt Experience?


FOR PARTICIPANTS regularly hunting during 1990’s, they were fairly familiar with cryptic posers, navigational tulips and hard copy of reference materials.


The need to have knowledge accessible at hand often led to the presence of books and files in the vehicle. And the practice has remained relatively unchanged during the turn of millennium.


However with the advent of mobile gadgets and the boom of internet surfing, the landscape of treasure hunting has significantly shifted.


1,400 participants in Augmented Reality Hunt 2014!!!

Date: 2nd November 2014 (Sunday)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Extracted from THS Tulip newsletter (Jul-Sep Edition 2014)

THS Walk Hunt also made a comeback in 2014 to the Pearl of the Orient. However there was a twist this time!
During 2012 and 2013, the hunts have traditionally taken place in shopping malls. Whether the venues were Gurney Plaza, Queensbay Mall or 1st Avenue, these were indoor sites, where the hunters were cozily pampered in an air-conditioned enclosed environment, with no vehicle traffic to fret about.

Come this year, the hunts have now become open-air affairs, which presented a unique challenge on its own.
