The Fab 4, adult team winners of the 2016 Cary Scavenger Hunt

Cary, NC- The 7th annual Cary Scavenger Hunt took place on Saturday, September 17th at the Page-Walker Arts & History Center. It was our biggest Hunt ever with 69 teams registered to compete on a beautiful sunny day.

A total of 13,517 points could be earned before adding in bonus points. Bonus points were awarded bringing donations at morning Check-In to the following: Kramden Institute for used electronics, Dorcas Ministries for non-perishable food, and Operation Eagle for brand new mens white crew socks.

There were more extra points possible is teams visited all of our 20 event clue-level sponsors. 500 bonus points were earned for that extra work! 

Teams competed in three categories:

  • Corporate Teams
  • Family Teams
  • Adult Teams

We used a new phone-based app (called the 2016 Cary Scavenger Hunt) that could be found in the Apple and Google Play app stores. After overcoming a few programming snafus, everyone was able to log their team answers in the app and be scored during the afternoon by our celebrity judges.

That said, we did have a slight error in announcing our initial winners. There was a scoring glitch that caused our staff to misread some of the winners. Everyone will keep all of their cash and trophies and we will make additional monetary awards to all teams that deserve them.
