On September 24th, Hal-Con Sci-Fi Fantasy Association will be hosting its first scavenger hunt. Called The Great Hal-Con Geek Quest, the event, which benefits Kids Help Phone, will take teams all over downtown Halifax where they will participate in a series of quests that will test their knowledge of Hal-Con, of Halifax, and in some cases will even test their senses of humour!
Teams will compete against each other to score the most points in a limited period of time. All quests will require photo and video evidence to document their completion with many of them being shared to social media. Teams are encouraged to use their wits to come up with the best image – creativity and ingenuity will earn extra points!
Team registration begins on August 15th and will run until September 17th or until fifty teams are registered. The registration fee is $20 per team of three to five players and each team member must be nineteen years of age or older. Prizes will be awarded to the top two scoring groups, and there will also be a prize for the team displaying the best team spirit. If twenty teams are registered, each participant will be entered in a draw for two weekend passes to Hal-Con’s 2016 convention and if thirty teams are registered there will be be an additional draw for a pair of Warp Speed Passes to the event.
