Hey guys, I'm passing on a message from Christina from the Reston Group hosting the Puzzle Scavenger hunt.
I wanted to announce that we have secured prizes from Carpool, Phoenix Worldgate 9 Theater, and Trader Joe's! Prizes will be distributed to the top three teams after 6pm at our final checkpoint location (clues on your hunt sheet to be distributed on Saturday).
Just a reminder on what to bring:
1) A team of up to 4 members (you can form a team at registration if you are looking for a group)
2) A pencil
3) A digital camera (preferably with an SD memory card) per team
3) A motor vehicle that will fit your team members
4) 5 items (or one industrial size item), from each participant, from the list below to donate to the Capital Area Food Bank
On the day of the scavenger hunt, we will register teams and review the 'rules of engagement'. We will then pass out the questions and riddles for you to solve.
The final checkpoint should lead you to our board game destination where we can relax and present the prizes to the teams with the best time. Don't worry, I'll even get the riddle-challenged to the final destination.
The meetup location to register and start the race is in the Reston Town Center: where the trumpets blow and water flows around the Greek messenger god...oh, yeah...the game starts now!
