|Horcrux Scavenger Hunt
||10/21/17 to 10/21/17
Do you love Harry Potter? Enjoy solving mysteries? Need to get in some more exercise and steps? Want bragging rights with your friends, family and co-workers?
Then come join the most amazing scavenger hunt ever!
The Horcrux Scavenger Hunt will send you on a journey to solve clues and find the hidden horcruxes around the Hazel Ruby McQuain Amphitheater and trail areas [no need to cross any roads during the hunt]. You will also have other related items on your list to find, and some bonus points you can earn through some crazy activities. The idea is to have fun, get in a little walking, and see who is up for the challenge! We will be raising money for a nonprofit that helps empower teen girls and women, and we will also be doing some good around the community while we have fun.
There will also be a Hogwart's Costume Contest [$5 entry] with prizes and a Pumpkin Contest [$5 entry] with prizes for those who want to participate. Come dressed as your favorite character, and bring an already carved pumpkin if you want to participate in the Pumpkin Contest [costumes and pumpkins not necessary to participate in Scavenger Hunt]. These contests will happen right before the Scavenger Hunt begins. Our special judges, Adam Etris and Mike Susa of the "That Wasn't Bad" podcast will select our winners, and then we're off for the Scavenger Hunt! And we have a few surprises in store!
WHAT TO DO:
1) Register as individuals, and then put together a team! Give your team a name. You just register here as individuals, and as you check in that night at the event, you can tell us what team you are on. [we recommend 6 or less people on a team to make it manageable; but no hard and fast rules on that]
2) Invite all your friends and all their friends...and maybe those Facebook "friends" that seem super cool but you don't actually know that well.
3) Raise money that will change lives, right here in West Virginia. [watch for emails about this easy way to earn extra points]
4) HAVE A BLAST, and try to WIN!
SCAVENGER HUNT PRIZES:
1st place Team: Restaurant and Starbucks Gift card, plus a remote control wand for EACH team member!
2nd place: Restaurant Gift card for each team member
3rd Place: Starbucks Gift card for each team member
******Don't miss out! You can earn an extra 200 points for your team [the same points as finding one of the horcruxes!] if you follow the directions in the email you receive sometime after registration [or get started now by following the directions here]. This could make a significant difference in your score! If you want to get started, go to this link on 99pledges.com:
Scroll to the bottom and click on "add participant." Then set up your TEAM NAME [don't set up as an individual] and start sharing the fundraiser on Facebook, Twitter, and via email. There are buttons to do so. Try to raise $100 for Libera to earn extra points for your team at the Scavenger Hunt!
There will be Food and Drink at the end for all Scavenger Hunt participants with wristbands, including Butter Beer! Swag bags for every participant.
Parking: there is very limited parking at the amphitheater, but there are two parking garages right along the trail: Wharf Street Garage and Waterfront Place Garage. Plan to park in these.

RULES: [we wouldn't want you to be disqualified!]
Teams will be required to take a number of photos during the Hunt to win points. Make sure your team has a couple of fully charged phones with you to take photos to show the judges.
Remember no cars, bikes, skates, scooters, or other transportation allowed during the Hunt. Wheelchairs and other mobility devices are permitted. If you have a disability and require any additional accommodations, please reach out to email@example.com so we can make sure you have access to everything you need.
Even though your dog is the cutest dog on the planet, he's not allowed at The Horcrux Scavenger Hunt (this goes for all pets). Service animals only.
Each member of your team needs to check in individually where they will be given a wristband and a bag of goodies. You must wear your wristband during the event.
Only team members who are checked in by 5:00pm will be able to compete. If you are running late, we invite you to join us for the wrap-up food and drinks at 7:30pm (you'll still get your bag of goodies and enjoy your free food and butter beer).
All team members need to be present for the duration of the hunt (5:00pm-7:30pm) so that they appear in all photos. Only teams with the same members present in all photos are eligible for prizes! You must be present when prizes are announced at 8:00pm to win.
Anyone caught defacing property, hampering other teams, or destroying or removing horcruxes will be disqualified.
All judges decisions on winners will be final. Judges will check photos and scores and announce winners after scores are confirmed.
P.S. If you need any assistance, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re happy to help!
All proceeds stay in West Virginia to benefit teen girls and women through Libera, a 501(c)3 nonprofit www.liberawv.com
