Starting and ending at the Truckee Meadows Parks Foundation (TMPF) office in Idlewild Park (50 Cowan Drive), registered teams ($50 a team - 5 people per team, extra team members are $10/person) will be handed a long list of clues at 8 am and be sent on their way to explore their parks and accrue as many points as possible. Clues will vary from "easy" to "extremely difficult" which may require some research. Each clue will have a different point value and extra points will be given for certain clues. In order to gain points for a clue, a team must find the item/place and take a picture with every team member in the photo (minus the photographer, unless they prefer selfies!). The team must then tag the photo appropriately (#clue number, #quailquest, #teamname) and post it to Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or email it to TMPF. Photos can also be submitted through a digital camera memory card at the end of the day. There will be meet-ups throughout the day at various parks as well! The TMPF team will be at the office monitoring tweets and posts, maintaining a live track of all the scores. Teams will also keep a written log to serve as a backup scorecard.

 

The Hunt ends at 5pm when teams will return to the TMPF office. The picnic will begin followed shortly by the award ceremony! There will be food trucks, beverages (free beer!), and live bands at the picnic. The team with the most points will win the grand prize, with second and third place prizes as well. Smaller prizes will be awarded for fun categories such as best team costumes and best team name. 

 

Example clue: 

This building was a gift from our neighboring state in 1927 to commerate the completion of the Transcontinental highway.
