Seven Passes to the Prize

The winner between Ann and Virna would gain something of advantage from their late Great-Uncle Charles’s estate. Virna has shown that she will stop at nothing to win, but Ann is mystified when the briefcase containing her maps and documents is stolen. seven passes to the prize

The Hot Seat

Plot:

One day they are on a timed rally, which means passing through control points at certain times, a penalty mark being collected for every minute late. During the run, they have to obtain certain information at various check-points to prove they have stuck to the proper route.
