Make your way to Rawson Square in downtown Nassau roughly 15 minutes before your scheduled start time. After you’ve registered with the race director, you’ll be divided into teams of three to six people and receive a map marked with 40 points of interest. See the Itinerary
for a sample list of places marked on the map.
Get a full briefing from the race director on the rules of the scavenger hunt, and then come up with an awesome team name to intimidate your competitors. You’ll also want to make sure at least one member of your team has a digital camera or camera-ready smartphone.
Once all teams are ready and you’ve been given the green light, set off to begin the hunt. You have 1.5 hours to visit as many of the sites on the map as possible. The order in which you hit the sites isn’t important, but your team must stay together throughout and you must answer a question or complete a challenge at each site to acquire points.
The scavenger hunt finishes at Pompey Square, where all of the teams’ score are tallied. If your team has secured the most points and followed the rules along the way, you’ll nab the prize. But if you break the rules, another team will swoop in and claim the prize.
The rules include:
- Don’t leave the starting location until you’ve received instruction from the race director
- Teams arriving more than 15 minutes late to the hunt forfeit their right to the prize
- Obey all traffic laws and do not commit any crimes to complete the challenges (remember, it’s just a game)
- Teams that arrive after the 1.5-hour time period concludes receive a 5-point deduction for every minute late
