Rocky Mountain Mystery Writers of America Nevermore CAR RALLY-SCAVENGER HUNT.
(It will drive you wild!)
What is a CAR RALLY-SCAVENGER HUNT?
Do you like to toss the GPS out your window? Can you pass every gas station without once asking for directions? Does the open road shout “adventure” to you?
The RMMWA road rally combines speed (within posted limits) with a test of your ability to follow instructions, solve clues, observe landmarks, and prove your site visits. In other words, this is a race made for mystery writers.
FIRST: We’ll meet at the Philip S. Miller library in Castle Rock. Specifically, gather round the bandstand there. See photo to left.
NEXT: We’ll assign up to four team members to a car. If you want to be a driver, please let us know. While you may ride with your BFF, we also hope to mix people up in order to make new friends.
FOLLOWING ALONG: You and your team will be given a kit of clues that will take you around Castle Rock until you end up at our “secret” meeting place.
LAST: We’ll party down, share tales of the road, award prizes, and partake of food. Should be a great time for all.
DATE: Saturday, August 13
TIME: 1:00 p.m. (party starts at 3:00)
PLACE: Meet at the bandstand outside the Philip S. Miller Library
100 S. Wilcox Street, Castle Rock, Colorado
PRICE: $15 per person.
IMPORTANT: If you get carsick and just want to party down, register for the party ONLY ($10/person), and we’ll send you the top secret instructions to the party site. Then we’ll see you there at 3 p.m.
PARTICIPANTS: You may want to bring some or all of the following: smartphone, dictionary, measuring tape, thinking cap, hammer, screwdriver. Just sayin’.
