Car Treasure Hunt Sept 11, 10:00 at Holiday Inn, Armação de Pêra


Come and join us for the first Silves Rotary Club Car Treasure Hunt, kindly organised and planned by Doug McLachlan, a Friend of Silves Rotary Club.

Start at The Holiday Inn at 10.00am.

Each car will be given clues to find five local sites where the Treasure may by buried.

You need to take photographs of the five sites, to prove you found them, so remember to bring a camera (or whatever you take your photos on!)

After finding the five sites, drivers return to The Holiday Inn for 12:30 lunch and to compare notes with other participants. If you cannot find all the sites, please come back to the hotel to share in our lunch and fellowship! Buffet lunch with wine water and coffee is €17.50.

After lunch, Doug will judge the photographs and prizes will be awarded to the winners.

We are asking for a 10 euros donation per car for the Treasure Hunt, which will all go to the R.I.  End Polio Now Campaign.

Please join us to make this a morning of fun, friendship and fundraising!

Eigelstein Brass is a young, vibrant brass quintet based in Cologne, Germany. The members, who hail from Japan, Australia, Scotland and Germany met in 2014 whilst studying at the Hochschule für Musik und Tanz Köln. With their diverse range of musical tastes and a mutual enjoyment of high quality chamber music, the ensemble aim to bring the brass quintet to the forefront of the German chamber music scene.

Their programmes contain traditional and modern pieces as well as original compositions written and arranged for the group. Having made their debut performance at the 2014 Brass Symposium in Aachen to an enthusiastic reception from the audience,they continue on their quest of bringing high quality chamber music to audiences in and outside of the standard concert hall setting with this wonderful concert.

The Quintet consists of

Kathrin Simons – Trumpet
Leonard Rathmann – Trumpet
Lauren Whitehead – Horn
Yoshiki Matsuura – Trombone
Fraser Russell – Tuba
