RTA's Search the City Scavenger Hunt
Saturday, June 15, 2013 from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM (EDT)

On Saturday June 15, 2013, RTA’s Search the City Scavenger Hunt will celebrate our city’s unique culture, highlighting the tradition that has shaped our identity and the innovation that will shape our future. The idea is a scavenger hunt that explores our great city with stops to the east like Lakeview Cemetery and Shaker Square and to the west in Ohio City and everywhere in between. Most importantly, we will be demonstrating to Clevelanders and outsiders alike, that our city is one rich in diversity, activity and culture- everything we love about Cleveland that’s easily accessible on transit.
Each participant will receive a starter kit, which will include a map of the city, trip plans, timetables, and RTA All Day passes. The focus of this event is to keep it green and show how easy it is to visit the great locations in this city via public transportation.
Participants will assemble at 10:00am for a golf scramble-like start, at one of twelve challenge locations. They will then progress through the event one station at a time, each following the same path with a different starting point, until all challenges are completed, no later than 5:00pm. Teams will then meet at Progressive Field to celebrate completion of the hunt at the Rally Alley located on Erie Street, just outside the ballpark. The Rally Alley is a great location for pre-game fun. Each Search the City participant will also receive a ticket to that night’s game vs. the Washington Nationals. It’s also an AC/DC fireworks night!
Challenges vary between mental and physical events. Creativity is what it’s all about and finding ways to show off different areas of town that might not be on your radar, even as a native Clevelander.
Prizes will be awarded for our first, second and third place teams. First place will receive $250 in cash as well as have their Tribe game tickets upgraded to the Social Media Suite. Second place will receive $125 in cash and third place will receive $75 in cash. Other prizes will be awarded for teams with the “Most spirit”, “Most Cleveland”, “Greenest commute”, etc. Chances to win Indians memorabilia and prizes will occur at the Rally Alley.
More details will be available on the RTA Facebook page, www.facebook.com/rideRTA in preparation for the event.
