Corporate Teams: Represent Your Company

hunt

Cary, NC — Every year, CaryCitizen comes up with new twists for our annual event, the Cary Scavenger Hunt. Last year, we added live electronic scoring. This year, it’s Corporate Teams!

Represent Your Company

This year, we’ve added a new team Category to the Hunt: Corporate Teams. Companies can sponsor one, two or three teams of employees who compete on behalf of their business. These teams will sport special shirts that have their company’s logo screen printed on the back.

The Cary Scavenger Hunt has always been an awesome team-building event. Teams of four must strategize. They quickly look through our clue book of questions, figure out where they can get the most points and then map out a plan of action.

The best teams work well together. Someone is a great navigator, someone drives and another member figures out the clues. One keeps track of the photos. It’s Team Building at its finest.

Sign Up 1-3 Teams

How can a company sign-up to sponsor a team? Can more than one team compete?

Visit our sign-up page, and you’ll see three Corporate sponsorship levels:

  • 1 Team – $100
  • 2 teams – $175
  • or 3 teams – $225

Have a company representative visit our Eventbrite page to fill out the registration and provide a company contact person and payment. If you prefer, contact CaryCitizen directly to arrange all the particulars by emailing Lindsey Chester.

Registration includes teams of four people who will all sport special Cary Scavenger Hunt event T-shirts with your company logo on the back.

Come up with a fun name for that particular Team. For example, the “Lenovo Loonies” or the “Cisco Crazies.” CaryCitizen will contact corporate team registrants to receive a digital copy of the company logo for reproduction.

We may even add a special page to our website listing all the Corporate sponsors – a nice little piece of PR for your company. We already have three corporate teams signed up! A past team representing Allen Tate Realty Cary-Searstone had so much fun last year that they eagerly signed up three teams to compete this year!

Raffle drawings mean anyone can wcome away a winner!

Win Big

Not only will your company employees have a day filled with team building, they might win big! First place teams will win big event trophies and $250 cash! 2nd and 3rd place teams will win trophies too! The finish area includes food and activities (just like a race), and, also, free raffle prize drawings, meaning that anyone can win something.

Our Grand Prize raffle this year is a Sweet Escape two-night stay at Downtown Cary’s new Mayton Inn, including dinner at Veranda and drinks in their bar. Another raffle prize is jewelry from Stonehaven Jewelers. Others will include massages, gift cards and more.

You don’t need to be an expert on Cary to Win!

Only 4 Weeks Til The Scavenger Hunt!

Cary, NC- You gotta be in it to win it! The Cary Scavenger Hunt is just 4 weeks away and that means, its time to register and guarantee that your team will be wearing our fun event t-shirts while competing!  We are dropping hints on our facebook page– look there and you may have several answers ready before you even have a cluebook in hand!

Cheaper than a Movie Date

Registration costs only $49.99 per team of 4 people. You won’t need to spend ANY  additional money that day, unless you need to fill up your tank. The day includes your lunch, prizes, t-shirts, and lots of memories and a fun festival at the finish area. It’s cheaper than sending your family to the movies! And more memorable! Can you even tell me the last movie you saw and what the plot was?

You will learn all about Cary and yourselves during the day.

What you should know: Even if you think you don’t have enough points to win, the day is filled with fun, and there is a prize for our team with the absolute LOWEST score! Winners will receive trophies and prizes which this year includes CASH!

Its a Party

The day begins at 9 at the Page-Walker when you check in, and all teams must return by 1:30 to have their scores tallied. At the finish we have a party planned with food, crafts and entertainment. If you’re hungry, Tijuana Flats, Another Broken Egg, Smoothie King, Chick Fil A Waverly and Great Harvest Bread Co will feed you. Tired? We’ve scheduled performances by the International Ballet Academy, Concert Singers of Cary, Tiger Rock Martial Arts and the Cary Y Superskippers to help you chill out. The Cary Creative Center will be working on crafts with the kids. Our winners will be announced around 3:00.

SO What are you waiting for? Check out the event website and sign up today- you could still be entered to drive a FIAT for the day and save yourselves a tankful of gas! Register before September 9 to guarantee that everyone on your team gets to wear one of our great event T shirts!
