DECEMBER 19 & 20, 2020
Gambit’s 40th Anniversary Scavenger Hunt presented by The Sazerac House
is a 2-day, do-it-at-your-own pace “New Orleans spirited” adventure that will be hosted the weekend of December 19 & 20, 2020.
Your participation in Gambit’s 40th Anniversary Scavenger Hunt helps support local journalism. Deadline to sign up: Dec. 16
How to play:
1. Register and organize your team members. Each team can have 1 to 4 players (Gambit Supporting Members play for free). Non-Gambit Member teams can register to play for $20. All participants must be 21.
2. Name your team and designate an “object” that will accompany you on your hunt.
3. On the morning of Dec. 19, 2020 you will receive a clue book via email and the scavenger hunt rules. Solve the clues and take a photo with your “object” to prove you were there. All photos must include your “object” (example: your favorite copy of Gambit or your lucky Drew Brees bobble head). All but one member of your team must be in your submitted photos—no dividing and conquering. You do not need to solve every clue or visit every location. Do as much as you can, to earn the most points.
4. All photos must be submitted via Dropbox (instructions to follow) by 11:59 pm on Sun., Dec. 20.
5. Points will be tallied and winners will be announced on Mon., Dec. 21 and the team with the most points* will win $1,000 and a Sazerac House mixology bar kit (shaker, jigger, spoon and strainer).
2nd place team participants will each win a one year museum membership to an “Art for all institution” of the winners choice (Ogden, CAC, NOMA, Children’s Museum, or Botanical Gardens) courtesy of the Helis Foundation.
The third place team will win gift card to Central City BBQ.
Additional prizes will be awarded to the 4th, and 5th highest scoring teams. *In the event of a tie, a drawing for prize levels will be held.
