St. Maarten – Eighteen cars with teams of 4 people participated in this year’s Rotary Club of St. Maarten Mid Isle 5th edition of its Charity Motor Treasure Hunt. Each team donated $500 in order to participate. The route started at the Kimsha beach in Simpson Bay and covered a large portion of the Dutch side of the island. Each team had to follow the route according to the script given and answer questions based on clues that they would find on the route. They also had to answer a number of riddles and were required to do a little activity at three set places on the route. A small section of the French side was also included when participants were asked to climb to the highest point of St. Louis and take a selfie.
