BMWCSA Scavenger Hunt 2021

June 7 @ 8:00 am - June 28 @ 5:00 pm

The BMW Club of Southern Alberta is excited to announce our first-ever scenic scavenger hunt, a fun, safe and refreshing opportunity to experience the Joy of Driving.  You will get to explore your area, showcase your ride, and most importantly do it safely! This is an individual and not a group activity so there are no Covid restriction issues.

Test your knowledge of local and regional points of interest. Twenty locations are described by clues.  First, decipher the clues, then between June 7 to June 28, travel to some or all of the sites.  This is a opportunity to enjoy your favorite ride as you visit desired spots and explore new attractions.

To participate in the scavenger hunt please email a photo of your car (does not have to be a BMW) at each location you visit between June 7 and 28, 2021.   The deadline for submissions is 11:59 PM end of day Monday, June 28. Email as often as you like with one or with multiple locations.

We plan to use some of the photos in upcoming newsletters and prefer pictures of your car and locations only, without persons appearing in the image, as we do not have signed consent from anyone to use their image.   If you wish to send in submissions, but do not want to have your photo(s) used in our newsletter please clearly indicate DO NOT USE PHOTO in the text of your email.  Again, any photo that includes people will count as a valid entry, but cannot be used in our newsletter.

• Send submissions to events@bmwcsa.ca

• In the Subject line enter BMWCSA SCAVENGER HUNT 2021

• For each photo submission, please make sure the monument or attraction can be easily identified so we can qualify the entry.

• In the text field

o Include your name, membership number and a contact number.

o Include the name of the location

o If you do not want your photo used in our newsletter indicate DO NOT USE PHOTO in the text.

Photos with people will qualify as a submission, but cannot be used in our newsletter.

As an added incentive, there will be prizes for the three members who correctly decipher the most clues and visit the most locations on the list. Earliest entry breaks any tie. Prizes will be announced in an upcoming newsletter and will be awarded at the Annual Summer Barbeque.   The winners’ names will be included in the announcement.
