Local knowledge could lead you to treasure
Thursday, 13th May, 2010
Fancy yourself as an expert on local knowledge? Then the “Jazzy Treasure Hunt via Car” could be just the thing for you.
The treasure hunt will begin on Sunday at 1:30pm and go for about three hours. It starts and finishes at the Centre for Community on Beryl Street. Teams of up to five people are invited to take part and each will be given a set of instructions and clues that will take them around Broken Hill to some well-known places and some places that they never knew existed.
“There hasn’t been a community treasure hunt like this for many years,” said the Chairman of the Outback and All that Jazz Committee, Ann Rogers. “So we’ve made sure our event is family friendly and sure to challenge the people who have lived here all their lives.” First prize is a hamper for the team with the most correct answers.
“Each team member of the winning car will get to share in the prize, so if there’s five people in the car, that’s $100 worth of goodies per person” said Ms Rogers.Included in the prize pack are CDs, hair products, soft furnishings, dinner vouchers and City Trader shopping vouchers. “So get your team together and send in your entry form and fees and get ready for an afternoon of friendly competition” said Ms Rogers.
The treasure hunt is being held as a fundraiser for the Outback and All That Jazz festival. A barbecue dinner, where the winners will be announced, will be held at 4:30pm at the Centre for Community. Entry to the treasure hunt costs $25 per car and $10 per person for the BBQ dinner.
