TIMELINE

Teams receive the Hunt List at 10am July 3 and can complete clues on their own timeline throughout the week. Hunting can be done at your own pace and at any time of the day, as all answers are found outdoors in public spaces. You must submit answers before 10pm July 9. There is no advantage to submitting earlier in the week, so long as you submit before the deadline.

TEAM

Each team should consist of 2-4 adults (age 15 and above). 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. Teams will create a team name.

COST

Each team will pay $40 to register, $20 of which will be given to Calgary Food Bank. If cost is a barrier, we will happily accommodate; please contact yyseekinfo@gmail.com.

SETTING

Teams will move throughout central Calgary to complete clues. See below for a visual.

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.

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.
