Hello to all of our teams, sponsors and supporters,
We are excited to have the event occur on Saturday Oct 16, 2021. The event will run from 11:00am - 3:00pm with a new set of clues released for each prize location each hour.
With 50+ prize locations and over $2,000 in prizes to be found, put your knowledge of our community to the test while supporting local business and raising money for a great cause.
The Great Kelowna Scavenger Hunt presented by Urban Elegance homes and hosted by Elevation Outdoors and the BC Wine, Cider and Spirits Festival is a day long event to support some of the many businesses impacted by Covid-19 while also raising funds for Elevation Outdoors and the Rotary Club of Kelowna Morningside in their efforts to make a positive impact in our community. Participants will receive clues to help them find the prizes that will be scattered all across the Downtown area. First group to find the locations wins the prize for that spot.
How it all works.
The Great Kelowna Scavenger Hunt presented by Urban Elegance Homes, and hosted by Elevation Outdoors and the BC Wine, Cider and Spirits Festival is a day long event to support some of the many businesses impacted by Covid-19 while raising funds for
Elevation Outdoors and the Rotary Club of Kelowna Morningside.
The Great Kelowna Scavenger Hunt impacts the community in a number of positive ways. With the way the event is set up, the impact is quickly felt beyond the positive impact on Elevation Outdoors. With 1/3 of all the money raised being invested back into our local business community through the purchase of GC for prizes there is a direct benefit to those businesses, in 2020, this event raised a total of $12,993.00, $3900.00 of which was used to purchase gift cards from locally owned and operated businesses.
How will I find the prizes?
Sign up as a solo player, or grab your crew, your kids or your co-workers and register as a team.
On Saturday Oct 16th all teams that have checked in and verified their vaccination status(as required by the Province of BC) will receive an email with the first round of clues at 11:00 a.m. to help you locate the prize locations. As the day goes by additional clues will be released, making it a bit easier each time to find the remaining prizes.
Unravel the clues to find the locations. The first group to arrive will find a "Great Kelowna Scavenger Hunt" icon. Grab to icon, snap a photo of you and your team at the spot, text it to us right away to verify the time you were there and we will hook you up with the prize for that location.
Prizes will range from $25 - $200 in value, so all you have to do is find 1-2 locations before everyone else, and its like you get a fun day of supporting your community for free!
Where will the prizes be?
Location markers will be hidden, with 3 different clues to help you find them through out the day. With the prize boundaries being Knox Mountain to the North, Gordon Dr to the East, and the Highway as Southern boundary it will allow participants to ditch their cars and get some exercise while looking for prizes!
Once you find the prize marker you will need to snap a photo of you/your group with it in the location and text it to our team. Once we receive the photo we will let you know what you have won.
As locations are confirmed to be found we will update the clue sheet to indicate what has been located so teams are not spending time hunting for what is no longer available. In 2021 we will also have a location marker indicating you have found the right location even after the prize has been won.
How is the event responding to Covid-19 concerns?
As this event was created as a way to help our community rally together as a response to the negative impacts of Covid-19, we are also working hard to ensure that the participants can participate in a safe manner as well.
As mandated by the Provincial Health Guidelines as this event has over 100 persons participating we are required to check the vaccination status of all participants on the day of the event. To do this we will need all team members names in advance, and on the morning of Sat Oct 16th each person needs to come check in with your Vaccine Passport prior to the event starting. This is not our choice, and is a mandatory step we have to take in order to host the event, so please be kind and respectful to our staff and volunteers that are helping make this possible.
Below you can see some of the many steps we will be taking to ensure we can all get out and have some fun, while ensuring our good friend Dr. Bonnie Henry's guidelines are being adhered to.
