Cary Scavenger Hunt: 10% Off in July

cary scavenger huntCary, NC – The 4th Annual Cary Scavenger Hunt is coming on Saturday, September 21, 2013. Here are some highlights and hints about this iconic Cary event, plus a 10% discount for registration in July.

2013 Cary Scavenger Hunt

As in scavenger hunts past, you’ll drive around town solving clues about places, people and things in Cary. You’ll collect souvenirs and amass points. The teams (Family and Adult) with the most points get prizes.

But everyone’s a winner, because the Cary Scavenger Hunt is really about an adventure in your own backyard.

Different Location Every Year

The first year we have held the Hunt at Koka Booth Amphitheatre to celebrate their 10th anniversary.

The second year we gave our teams a sneak peek of The Cary Arts Center before its official grand opening.

Last year we brought our crowd to the new Waverly Place  as new tenants were just starting to fill the space.

This September, we will base operations at the Historic Page-Walker Arts & History Center, thanks to our hosting sponsor, the Town of Cary and presenting sponsor Atlantic Tire.

Drive a New Fiat for a Day

One of our favorite twists that was added in year two was our partnership with Hendrick FIAT of the Cary Auto Mall. This will be the third year that they allow 4 teams to drive all day in four of their brand new cars. This year they have a new 4 door model (but we will tell you more on that in another post).

Stay tuned and we’ll tell you how to drive a new Fiat on the 2013 Hunt.

Be Efficient! From Start to Finish

The day starts with check-in at the site, when teams receive their T-Shirts. You wear these while zooming around town. Bags containing our official cluebooks are dispersed to everyone at once, and teams take off at 9:30am.

Clue questions will literally take everyone to the four corners of Cary. A good map, GPS, smart phone or laptop is helpful to make the best use of time. All teams return to Page-Walker by 1:30pm.

Strategy is Part of the Game

On average we have included 60 clues each year. Some clues are near each other, and most demand an efficient idea of where you are in Cary so that you move quickly from area to area.

Cary Scavenger Hunt clues are all worth different points. Places that are far away are worth more points. Clues that are close together have less point values, but are easier to collect.

10% Off in July

More than a dozen teams have already signed up for the September 21st event.

Last month, we gave 20% off for early birds. This month, we’re giving 10% off. In August and September, there will be no discounts.
