Twenty years ago someone had a cool idea which led to the inception of the IAESTE Malta Annual Car Treasure Hunt. It is therefore with great pride that we keep organising this event year in year out.
This year was no exception. After weeks of preparation the Activities Team prepared a mind-teasing, fun Treasure Hunt which on the 12th of April took the participants all the way from Ċirkewwa to Birżebbuġa while scavenging for the most obscene and random objects.
As a committee member, and part of the organising team for the past 4 years, I must say I always have a great time seeing the Treasure Hunters’ dedication to carry out all the ridiculous challenges and sprint from one location to another in hopes of winning some of our great prizes. However, such events are not merely a fun activity but they also bring out the determination and creativity of the participants. Even coming up with a team name is an opportunity to be creative for many. This year we had a team who called themselves ‘Gomom’ because you know … iħasru … together with the ‘Spring Treasure Hunters’, yes the pun is intended!
As per usual, many prizes were offered to the top-ranking teams thanks to our many sponsors. This year our prizes varied from a stay at Hilton Malta, a stay at Villaġġ tal-Fanal in Gozo, Windsurfing lessons, towing membership and discounts from MET LTD & Mile-End Services LTD, free crepes from La Krepree and vouchers from Malta Campsite, Full Circle 3D Printing and Malta National Aquarium. In addition to the sponsors offering prizes IAESTE Malta would also like to thank GSD Marketing and Sneak-a-Snack for their contributions that made this event a success.
In case you missed this fun day and awesome prizes, well, we will see you for the 21st Car Treasure Hunt next year!
