Venetian Night Lite – August 1, 2020 – Scavenger Hunt

July 21, 2020

What is the North Point Marina Scavenger Hunt?

It’s an easy & fun game in which teams of 2 – 4 participants walking, boating, hiking, biking or driving around the marina, earn points by finding treasures, collecting stuff and taking pictures of their team doing the fun (and sometimes wacky) things that are listed on North Point Marina’s Scavenger Hunt List. There will be loads of great prizes PLUS! All the money raised will benefit Safe Harbor Humane Society.

Why teams?
Teammates increase your chances to earn points. Team members can help by solving clues that lead to hidden treasures, collecting stuff, and doing the funny things listed on the Scavenger Hunt List–all of which earn you points. The more points you get, the better your chances of winning great prizes.

What do you need? You will need
• Some fun friends
• A way to travel around the marina – feet, bike, boat or car
• A cell phone with a camera OR a way to take digital pictures during the day (we gotta see you having fun!)

How do you play?
• At noon on Saturday, August 1st you will pick up North
Point Marina’s official Scavenger Hunt List which will tell
you what to do. The list is divided between things your
team will need to collect and fun things your team will do.
Sometimes the list will tell you to take a picture of your
team doing fun things. You earn points for each thing you
collect and do and the more points you get the better your
chances to win great prizes!

You collect and do the stuff on the Scavenger Hunt List in ANY
ORDER you choose. Each team sets their own course with the
goal of getting the most points and having fun!
