Are you looking for something to fill the void between the holidays and Seafood and Wine Festival? The Newport Rec Center has just the thing! The 2nd annual Super Awesome Scavenger Hunt in Newport (SASHIN for short) is January 24th – 27th.
A team meet and greet along with scavenger hunt overview kicks off the event on Jan 24th at the Newport Recreation Center. The list goes live at the end of the evening. Then teams will have until the end of Jan 27th to get as many tasks accomplished as possible! An awards get together to view the best submissions will be Feb 7th.
This is not your typical scavenger hunt. Last year’s task list included challenges like looking for ghosts at the local lighthouses, creating a sock memorial for lost sock mates, building the ultimate driftwood sculpture, filming Oregon Coast Slug Wranglers out looking for slugs, exploring our local State Parks, creating seaweed evening wear, and more. This year’s list will be just as varied, silly, and fun! Be prepared for acts of kindness, silliness, and creativity. Exercise your brain with riddles and challenges.
This event is all ages, but at least 2 people on the team must be 18 or older. There are prizes! If your team comes out victorious, you could all enjoy a dinner courtesy of Rogue Brewing, and you’ll get to invite your 50 closest friends for a pool party at the Newport Aquatic Center. Rogue is also sponsoring a special prize for one of the tasks, but you’ll have to join and wait for the task list to go live to find out what it is!
Join in teams of four, cost is $50 per team. Tickets and information are available on Eventbrite https://bit.ly/2BS2H0C Registration closes Jan 18th! Keep updated by liking the SASHIN Facebook page! Questions? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
