Cary, NC — CaryCitizen had our highest turn-out ever for our sixth annual Cary Scavenger Hunt – 63 teams registered to play and discover clues placed all over Cary.
6th Annual Cary Scavenger Hunt
The adventure started at the Page-Walker Arts & History Center.
Breakfast was provided by The Richards’ Advantage McDonald’s, Toast Cafe, Edible Arrangements, Relay Foods and Once in a Blue Moon Cafe.
A record number of teams signed up in advance to play and checked-in with us by 9:30. They were then given their clue books and began to strategize to use their time wisely. All teams had to return by 1:30 pm to have their scores tallied.
Due to predicted inclement weather Saturday for afternoon, we made a move to hold our finish-line festivities inside Cary’s Town Hall right next door.
Hilarious Team Photos
For the first time ever, teams uploaded photos from the field to a secure email address. We have some hilarious photos to share of their adventures.
When teams came back to Town Hall, a party awaited them included 24 booths filled with food and fun to keep them busy while their scores were tallied by our esteemed celebrity judges.
Then, we announced our winners. The three 1st place teams were:
Plenty of Fun
Regardless of whether teams won or lost, there was plenty of fun for all.
Many of our sponsors donated fun raffle prizes that included tickets to Cary Invasion games and opening nights at the Cary Players theater productions, a two-night stay at the Mayton Inn, jewelry from Stonehaven Jewelers and much more.
If you would like to see the the scores of all who competed, visit the official scoreboard on the Scavenger Hunt website. We will be announcing plans for the 2016 Cary Scavenger Hunt soon when we have a date set. Who knows – maybe your team will be a winner next year!
