Thursday, October 12, 2017Chamber Challenge Cup

The Amazing Chamber Chase

The Amazing Chamber Chase

We are planning a team scavenger hunt in Downtown Parkersburg.

 

Join us at Bicentennial Park for a fun, outdoor team activity in Downtown Parkersburg

 

Gather a team of at least 4 co-workers, friends, family - maybe you might want to dress alike or in fun costumes?? (Each team must have at least 2 adults over the age of 18)

 

At 5:45pm, you and your 3+ teammates will receive a list of clues to decipher and locations to find in Downtown Parkersburg. (Yes, cell phones are permitted! Actually you’ll need at least one cell phone to document the clues and selfies - see below)

 

The entire team must go to each location where you will have to take a selfie and compete in a small activity (fun easy things like a ring toss, draw something, sing a song…)

 

One teammate will need to be the timekeeper because ALL teams/ALL teammates must report back to Bicentennial Park at 7:30pm PROMPT with as many clues/activities that you’ve completed! (This is NOT a timed race - in fact we encourage you to walk and enjoy yourselves, just be back by 7:30pm!!)

 

At 7:30pm we will enjoy refreshments in the tent at the Blennerhassett Hotel and award prizes! (One drink ticket per adult; cash bar available.)

 

The route is less than 2 miles. Water will be provided, plus some clue locations have been kind enough to offer restrooms if needed.

 

Cost: $25 per team of 4 (additional teammates are $5/person)

Register: On-line registration at

http://events.constantcontact.com/register/event?llr=n5aoz5cab&oeidk=a07eenk3cu0380c1d5c

 

Volunteers also needed!  

Not interested in being on a team but you want to take part in this fun event?  We absolutely need your help!  We need approximately 20 volunteers to set up, man the clue/activity stations (will need cell phone for this assignment) and to help at intersections to keep our teams safe in traffic (you will get to wear a cool neon yellow vest!)

Please email us to volunteer.
