Annual Event in the Great Smoky Mountains
Everybody’s probably been on a scavenger hunt, but have you ever been on one in the Great Smoky Mountains? The 4th Annual Great Smoky Mountains Scavenger Hunt takes place March 3, beginning at the Great Smoky Mountains Institute at Tremont.
The hunt covers most of the park, using roads and official trails to access particular areas, and teams are required to answer questions to earn points. Some questions require research to answer. Questions are worth different point values depending upon the level of difficulty. The Scavenger Hunt team with the most points wins prizes. You can have as many people on your team as you like, provided everyone can fit into a single vehicle. As it is illegal to remove items from the park, one digital camera with a flash memory card will be required per team.
The event will take place over a 24-hour period with teams receiving their hunt questions via e-mail by 4:30 p.m. on Friday, March 2. Answers are due back at Tremont no later than 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 3. A light dinner will be served while tallying takes place. Advance registration required. This event is limited to 200 participants so register early! Cost per team: $50
