Boat and Float Scavenger Hunt
Friday, July 19
10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.

Back by Popular Demand: "Boat and Float Scavenger Hunt"

We're thrilled to announce the return of the "Boat and Float Scavenger Hunt" on Friday, July 19 at 10 am! Plan to join us until 2 pm, as our boat captain will ensure we make the most of our time together.
During the scavenger hunt, teams of 5-8 people will work together to solve clues and capture photos as proof of their finds. After the hunt, we'll gather to float, relax, and enjoy the lake.
Remember to pack your lunch, beverages (alcohol is allowed), towels, and sunscreen for a day filled with adventure. Plus, don't miss out on the chance to win exciting prizes!
Get ready for a day of camaraderie, competition, and unforgettable memories. We can't wait to see you there!

Anyone wishing to participate should email by Friday, July 12.

Please provide the following information:

  • Names of people planning to attend
  • If you would like to volunteer to drive your own boat. Please provide a cell phone number the captain of the boat.
  • If you would like to select and organize your own team, or if you would prefer, we assign you a team or add to your team.
  • Each boat will need a team captain to help keep things organized and assign jobs, like one person to keep track of the list, one person to take pictures, one person to hand out beer (just kiddin', I know that's a two person job).

We'll have fun, fun, fun till her daddy takes the speed boat away!
