Friday Night Light Rail Pub Crawl & Scavenger Hunt

Get ready for the first ever TYCAWest Phoenix Light Rail Pub Crawl & Scavenger Hunt on Friday, Oct, 13th. We can’t give away too much information, but here’s the gist of this fun event. 19th Avenue/Dunlap is a station on the Metro light rail line in Phoenix, Arizona. This station is 0.8 miles from the Sheraton Crescent Hotel. If that’s a far walk for you, there’s an Irish pub half way there. Stop. Take a break. Once you get there, the Scavenger Hunt begins. You and your team of no fewer than 3 people (5 max) will snap photo proof of each or as many as you can locate of the scavenger hunt items and post them in the Goosechase app. Your team will earn one point for checking in, locating, doing and posting photo evidence for each item. You can earn an additional 2-3 points for creativity for how you “participated” or recorded the item.These points are not automatically awarded.

Example: Scavenger item – All team members on the Light Rail. Snap a photo/video of your crew, tag it, and post to Goosechase = 1 point. Now if the photo/video shows all team members doing handstands on the seats on the Light Rail = 3 points! (I don’t think you can get arrested for that). So you can win by moving really fast around the Pub Crawl area and capturing all the Scavenger hunt items OR you can take a more leisurely approach and be more creative about how you capture the few items you find. Either approach can win!

I’ll give you a hint. The goal is NOT to find all the items. The goal is to have fun. More information, including the Scavenger Hunt list will be posted the day of the event (Friday, Oct. 13th, 2017).
