You can have as few as 2 and as many as 8 people.

Once I have my ticket how do I register my team?

Tickets are sold individually. After you have your ticket you may register your team by clicking here. You only need one to register the team once.

Do I have to buy my ticket in advance?

No, but the cost of purchasing tickets at the door will be $15, and you won't have as many chances to win our giveaways. The earlier you buy your ticket the better your chances of winning stuff!

What do I get for my ticket?

A whole day of fun with current and future friends! But also you'll have exclusive drink specials at all the bars with your wristband and you get tickets to win amazing prizes like a Go-Pro camera, John Mayer tickets, a Chromebook, yard games, and lots of other great stuff! Teams that rack up the most points also get $150 in gift cards to local bars & restaurants!

Do I have to show up with my whole team?

It's helpful if you arrive together, but if not, just make sure that everyone knows who your team captain is.

Costumes? Do I have to dress up?

Not at all. But this is movie themed, and there is a prize for the team with the best costume. Lots of people will be dressed up so feel free to get a little crazy with it!

What if it rains?

This event is rain or shine! Our last scavenger crawl was during a cold and rainy day and people still had a great time!

What does “photo-based scavenger hunt” mean?

When you check in, your team will get the list of “gems” which you will earn points for photographing and uploading to your team's profile page. You don't have to find all the gems to win, and some gems are worth more than others.

What's all this uploading of pictures about?

The only way we can efficiently verify all the things that all the teams are taking pictures of, and award points, is to have you upload them to your team's profile page.

How do I upload photos and where do I upload them?

Once your team is registered through this site, you will have a profile page that you and anyone on your team can log into, and it will have an upload portal that easily interfaces with your phone.

What kinds of things are we going to have to find?

We won't reveal the list until 1pm on July 29, so as to prevent any diligent dannies from doing their homework in advance, but to give you a sense of what the checklist might look like, here are some examples: “A girl with a tattoo that has handwritten script”, “a green fire hydrant”, “two people making out”. Get the idea? And your team has to have at least half the team in the picture.

What do we win?

There are prize packages with gift cards and other prizes from our sponsors for the top three teams, as well as Best Team Costume
