Rules and Logistical
Teams of 2-4 are given a list of tasks to accomplish during a four hour timeframe. Tasks involve collecting certain items, answering unique trivia and photographing the team with as many targets as possible. The name of the game is not so much speed but strategy as each task has a different point value allocated to them. Each team has to decide if they want to go for a high volume of tasks or try and go for the higher valued tasks for bigger points. The winner is the team with the most points at the end of the day!
The Object of the Game:
Photograph your team members with as many targets on the list as you can.
Collect as many of the items as you can.
Answer as many questions as you can.
The targets category consists of people, places, things and situations that your team must be photographed in. Remember whenever it doesn’t give a specific number of teammates, the more team members, the better. In the event of a tie the winner will be determined by the amount of team members in the photos.
The Interpretive section is a list of words or phrases that your team may interpret in any number of ways. Don’t forget creativity counts. A bonus will be given to the top 3 of each.
The items category consists of items that you do not need to take pictures of but you need to bring back to Home Base with you. We’ve tried to make most of the items free but a few you may need to spend a few loonies on if you choose to do them. I.e.… best garage sale find for a $1.
Your team will probably want to take a break somewhere along the way, lunch or patio, so there is a sheet of questions that you can answer for points as well. Just like before, the harder the question, the more points.
Teams can collect donations for Rotary’s Purple Pinkie Campaign to eradicate Polio. It costs as little as $1 to immunize two children from polio.
All of the proceeds will be donated to Polio Plus, and will be matched 2 to 1 by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, making your $1 now $3. See more below.
Points will be awarded to the top 3 teams for the most funds collected.
You have a list of targets for each team with point values assigned. Point values are predetermined by the judge/s and often range between 1 and 50 points per target with the more difficult targets receiving more points. Remember, you have roughly 6 hours, it may seem like a lot of time, but the day will go quickly. Please, no items or photos from your homes will be allowed.
Teams of 4 are registered in advance. During the rally the whole team must stay together. Teams may lose points if they separate as most tasks involve pictures where the whole team is meant to be together.
Awards and Prizes:
There are trophies that the teams can show off for the rest of the evening and of course bragging rights.
Cameras and Photo Processing:
We are in the digital age so it is a safe bet that most people would have a digital camera or a phone with a decent camera. We ask that you use a device that can utilize an SD\SDHC card. If you only have another format, please ensure that you have the proper computer USB cable to transfer the photos for the judging. Each team is limited to 25 photos. Ensure that only 25 photos are on the card by deleting unwanted ones. If there are more the 25 photos, only the first 25 will count. Once teams come back to home base, we will gather the pictures taken on a laptop and commence judging. One person from each team will need to verify what tasks are in each photo.
Damage or Harm:
Please take no risks to your personal safety during this hunt. Don’t do anything illegal, damage any property or harm any animals or people in order to complete your mission.
You are absolutely required to have fun while participating in this event.
About Purple Pinkie:
Polio has no cure. It is a crippling and potentially fatal disease, and children under the age of five are at the greatest risk. While there is no cure, there is prevention. For as little as 60 cents, a child can be protected against this crippling disease for life. The primary goal of the Purple Pinkie Project is to twofold -- to raise the funds needed to eradicate Polio, and raise awareness about the seriousness of this disease, and how we can prevent it. Polio has been eradicated in all but four countries. If Polio isn't eradicated, the world will continue to live under the threat of this crippling disease.
What is the significance of the Purple Pinkie?
When a child is vaccinated, they colour their pinkie finger nail purple, so they can tell that the child has already been vaccinated. This way they do not receive a double dose.
