Cary Scavenger Hunt: This Year’s Strategy

cary scavenger huntCary , NC – As the Cary Scavenger Hunt draws near, we’re spending a great deal of time mapping out the town creating intriguing or puzzling clues.Each year, our teams amaze us with how many locations they manage to find and how high they score. Get a hint on this year’s strategy and 10% off registration through July 31.

Each Year We Change Strategies

Every year we revise our Cary Scavenger Hunt strategy and try to make the race tougher.

The first year we gave our 31 teams 6 hours to find 56 clues. But the winning teams found everything! We decided that 6 hours was too long, and reduced the time to 4 hours. The second year it was was 101 degrees and the winners managed again to find everything in four hours. Year three, we increased the overall number of clues to 60.

Our family team last year, conquered it all with a winning score of over 2000 points!

Cary Scavenger Hunt 2013 Strategy

This year’s strategy could be called “four corners.” 70 clues will literally take you to the 4 corners of Cary.

Our town has a far western edge that’s in Chatham County – we’ve got clues out there. We have a very far eastern side off Hillsborough Street, the hunt will take you out there. Harrison Avenue heads North to Umstead Park- you’ll go there too. Go way to the south and you’ll find several winning clues there as well.

Remember: the farther the clue, the more valuable the points. Teams will strategize to figure out how they can get the most points quickly.

Here’s a clue that will get you to a new location in town, one you just might think is in Apex:

 Many people think Cary has only 3 public high schools.  Can you name the 4th? Visit the home of the Mustangs and take a photo to prove it.  This clue will be worth 325 points!

Do a little research and see if you know where you can find the Mustangs. Then drive over there and see if you can find a mustang to prove you were there! You could be on your way to winning….

Sponsors Are Important in the Hunt Too

Our sponsors also play an important role in the Cary Scavenger Hunt. Without them, the Hunt couldn’t take place. Pay attention to these guys, cause you may earn some points along the way.

We’d also like to thank some additional businesses who have come on board to be our event sponsors since our first event announcement:

    Might want to think again about the question regarding the number of high schools. Don’t forget to count private schools.
