Attention teams,
The team captains will receive notification of some crucial information on April 19. The information will be posted on the blog. Team captains are responsible for letting the team members know to read the blog.

The info you should expect to receive on April 19 includes:

  • Starting location of the scavenger hunt
  • Things your team needs to bring to the hunt
  • Official rules
  • Liability waiver (to be signed the day of the event)

Anything else will be told on a need to know basis. And unless you’re on the planning committee you definitely do not need to know before the event. :-)
