So now that my hangover from celebrating the Uni's birthday has gone, it's time to close this event up.
At the bottom of this message I will post the solutions to each of the puzzles and the breadcrumb trail that lead to the treasure.
I would like to send my personal thanks out to the myriad of people behind the scenes that worked tirelessly to bring a packed and varied program of events to all.
I also want to thank each and every member of the Uni for 2 things.
1. For being a part of the Uni. After all without you, this space wouldn't exist and then there would be no need for great events to be run
2. For taking part in any of the events. It is why we do this and it adds to the "togetherness" that is integral to being part of the Uni.
If you so wish to and I certainly encourage you to, see the below link to a quick feedback form on the Birthday Bash. Tell us what you thought, what we can improve or what you liked. We are always trying to improve our events.
Now on to the winners of the TREASURE HUNT!!
