Jokers Wild, the hunt for the Crystal Jester took place at the Essex market town of Saffron Walden on a very hot Sunday, 16 May 2004.
Members met at the Saffron Hotel on the High Street and after mixing up the teams a bit, clue sheets were issues which took the teams around the town searching for answers to clues. In the afternoon, the teams were able to make a little more sense of the cryptic answers they had found earlier when they were given a special pack of cards which spelled out a message.
The race was on to reach the Jester, who was hiding in the town's hedge maze a short dash from the hotel.
Organizers Nick Ball and Mary devised a fabulous day out which included a Jester to entertain us with card tricks and bendy baloons!
