City Announces Scavenger Hunt Winners

Hamilton – August 17, 2021

The City of Hamilton is excited to announce the winners of its City Scavenger Hunt which took place over the weekend.

A total of 40 teams took part in the hunts on Friday, August 13 and Saturday, August 14 with two hunts on each day.

The hunt took participants all around the City from the Cathedral on Church Street to Marks & Spencer on Reid Street and over to Wesley Square; it saw people doing karaoke with a live string quartet under the bandstand at Victoria Park, sampling drinks and guessing their ingredients at Brew, threading necklaces at David Rose Studio, snapping selfies with city artwork and playing cricket in Queen Elizabeth Park!

The overall winning team with the fastest time is “4 Maskateers” who completed the hunt (including finishing all missions and guessing all the clues) in 51 minutes. They won an electric bike.

The first-place winner for Friday’s hunts is “Da JaJa JeJe Kakhi RoRo Yan1” who won four 43” TVs.

The second-place winner for Friday’s hunts is “Island Tigers” who won four Vouchers courtesy of One Communications.

The third-place winner for Friday’s hunts is “Holla-Holla” who won four Wireless Bluetooth Speakers.

The first-place winner for Saturday’s hunts is “4 Maskateers” who won four Samsung Tablets.

The second-place winner for Saturday’s hunts is “Just Mooching Around” who won four Travel Vouchers.

The third-place winner for Saturday’s hunts is “The Laws” who won a dinner experience courtesy of Island Restaurant Group.

The City’s Senior Events & Marketing Coordinator Allison Tucker said, “We are absolutely thrilled with the success of the City’s Scavenger Hunt. It garnered so much interest and it was really fun to watch everyone having such a blast! The energy and enthusiasm of participants were outstanding; some teams even had specially made scavenger hunt t-shirts! It was interesting to note that the makeup of the groups was so varied – there were groups of friends, work colleagues, families, couples – and everyone took the hunt at their own pace with some running from spot to spot as fast as they could with others using the hunt as an opportunity to socialize!

“Saturday’s hunt was geared more towards children and families, and I heard that the little ones really enjoyed getting the magical wizard’s autograph at one of the stops!

“We were pleased to be able to bring this unique, fun and engaging experience to the people of Bermuda and will definitely look to feature another scavenger hunt in our events line-up next year.”

One of the hunt’s missions was to purchase (using the gift card provided) as many non-perishable items as they could beginning with a certain alphabet letter found in their ‘swag bag’. The collected items will be donated to the Salvation Army NSC.; a total of $400 worth of non-perishable goods were collected from the event.

Ms Tucker said: “We wanted to give back to the community; COVID-19 has been really hard for our businesses and island residents. This is one of the reasons we required teams to present a receipt with a minimum value of $25.00 from any City business between June 23rd- August 13th on arrival at the start of the hunt to be eligible to take part. We are pleased to announce that the total value of receipts collected for this event was just under $3,000.”

The event was COVID compliant and was organized to be as contactless as possible.

The City would like to thank our event sponsors One Communications and Bacardi Group Ltd for their collaboration on such a fun event for Bermuda.
