Thank you to everyone who participated in the Puzzle Hunt!!

The turnout was amazing.  We had 31 groups that participated in the challenge.

The fastest time came in at 52 minutes. The top 13 groups all finished in 90 minutes or less.  And we had one group that had to leave for an 8pm softball game and came back to finish at 10:43pm.

We would love any feedback that you have about the event (good or bad) to help us build more of these events in the future.

Anyone who did not receive their prize, please reach out via facebook or email and we’ll get your prize to you.

Thank you everyone!!

p.s. Anyone who wasn’t able to play on Thursday can still play.  We’ll leave the clues up through Saturday.

Covid-19 Guidance

As teams will be going to the same locations, I would recommend taking a picture of the clue at the location, and then moving away from it to maintain social distancing.

Masks are encouraged, but not required.  The entire competition will take place outdoors, and social distancing will be possible, so masking isn’t required.

Clues on the signs will be visual only, so you won’t need to touch the sign at all.
