Full Moon Rallye 68 Scavenger Hunt
Join us on Saturday, July 20th, for the 68th Full Moon Rallye. The walking rallye will begin on the front steps of Hamilton's Mansion in the middle of The Woodlands (http://woodlandsphila.org/ 4000 Woodland Avenue). Teams will have four hours to walk around the area following instructions and looking for answers to clues before finishing at City Tap University City.
A rallye is basically a scavenger hunt on foot. Each team (of 2 people) is given a list of directions that they must follow to navigate through the course (e.g. Turn left at Wawa, or proceed straight until you come to a statue of Shakespeare). Along the way, the teams have to find answers to questions (e.g. Where do you find a $1.99 Super Hoagie?, or Who built the Shakespeare statue?). There are different types of questions with different point values (the harder ones are worth more). The team that answers the most questions correctly wins! The course is designed to be walked in less than two hours, so there should be no need to hurry - unless you are going way too slow. Along the way, your team may also have to buy certain items (called retrievables) to prove you were at a location, or to be used later in the rallye. You do not need to know the area!
Registration is for a team of two.
Each team should bring a pen/pencil, clipboard, $5 (in case you need to get something on the course) and a cellphone.
This rallye will again benefit the Idiopathic Ridiculopathy Consortium, whose mission is to bring classic absurdist theatre to an international audience in the Philadelphia region. These rarely-produced, renowned plays explore and illuminate human purpose and meaning, promoting reflection about the human condition in a contemporary world.
