FLARC Annual Fox Hunt – Tuesday August 16, 2022 7pm
This will be a driving hunt (no on-foot component).
The start point is the east end of the parking lot at 401 Charmany Lane. The transmitter will be somewhere within an eight-mile radius of the start point.
We will be transmitting fifteen consecutive seconds of every minute, on 146.565 MHz FM, until all teams have found us, or 9pm, whichever comes first. After the conclusion of the hunt, we will adjourn to a nearby Culver's for frozen custard and the customary swapping of lies.
If you have room for passengers in your vehicle, or wish to be a passenger in somebody else's vehicle, then please arrive at the start point around 6:30 to allow time to sort that out, or make arrangements beforehand.
