Last quest of 2016 can we go out on a high we are now on Seven wins on a roll, so can we do it again?

The heavy weight is not on Sophies Shoulders, as she has a week off. Instead we have a first timer. Yes her inaugural attempt at doing the running falls on the shoulders of Earl Grey, yes, Anna Morton is out and about, with Navigator Ian this morning in the radio car. Battling not only the Questmaster, but the foggy weather. David was in the Christmas spirit fuelled by an overload of coffee once again. Questmaster was his usual ebuliant self, having now rested whilst the clues are in place, Glam in place this morning was Gold Shoe Sam. We travailed into deepest darkest Norfolk at Hemsby to start and got to the treasure in the Forum
