Event description
This week-long scavenger hunt will bring adventure and fun as you and your team scour central Calgary for answers!

About this event

TEAM

Each team should consist of 2-4 adults (age 15 and above). Please choose teammates in accordance with provincial Covid guidelines, being mindful of close contact rules. One-person teams are allowed, but not recommended. Each team must have means to move around central Calgary. Participants must be respectful of the yyseek Rules (below). Participants can be any age, but be advised that clues were designed with adults in mind. Teams may need internet to solve and locate clues. Please arrange internet access accordingly. Teams will create a team name.

COST

Each team will pay $30 to register, $15 of which will be given to Calgary Food Bank. We recognize that Covid19 has presented many financial difficulties; if you are low-income, contact yyseekinfo@gmail.com for an alternate arrangement.

TIMELINE

Teams receive the Hunt List at 10am July 4 and can complete clues on their own timeline throughout the week. You must submit answers before 10pm July 10. There is no advantage to submitting earlier in the week, so long as you submit before the deadline.

SETTING

Teams will move throughout central Calgary to complete clues.

TASKS

Each team will receive a yyseek Hunt List when their time begins, which will direct participants through central Calgary. Answers will all be found outdoors and will not require you to touch or handle anything. Teams can attempt as many tasks as they choose and can simply ignore any remaining tasks. yyseek is not laid out in a linear treasure hunt fashion, so teams must create their own strategy. The Hunt List must be returned to yyseekinfo@gmail.com with your answers.

PRIZES

Prizes are generously donated by local Calgary businesses and include an experience, product, or gift card from Trolley 5, Kent of Inglewood, Social Cut & Shave, and Caffe Beano. More to come. Prizes will be awarded among the top teams based on point earnings. Judges will divide prizes in the unlikely event of a tie for first place.

NOTE

This one-time event is created and run by a local Calgarian with the goal of providing a community-building event that gives voices and support to Calgary local businesses and Calgary Food Bank.
