Adventure Scavenger Roadrally; South Mountain

Big Hill Ciderworks

About this event


Registration fees

Registration: $25 per car


Adventure Scavenger Roadrally; The South Mountain Edition is designed to provide an scenic drive through the countryside while enjoying a Scavenger Hunt. This "Roadrally" is a social event and is not based on accurate time and distance - in fact, each team picks their own route and is able to maximize points the way that suits each team the best. Scoring is based on the ability of the team to use clues to find target locations, while leaving enough time to finding their own way to the finish location in the allotted time frame. Each team will be provided with a packet of rules and instructions. There will be two classes, Polaroid and Instagram. The Polaroid class will get instructions on how to turn in there pictures for scoring. If your team chooses the Instagram class. There will be instructions on how to post pictures on instagram to mark way-points and collect points. Someone on your team needs an instagram account for your team to get points! This is a great opportunity to get younger family members involved in a driving activity. This event will take place rain or shine. Only extreme weather conditions warrant cancellation.

A Road Rally is not a race! OBEY ALL TRAFFIC LAWS. The roads are challenging, sharp curves, steep climbs, small towns with pedestrians and wildlife crossings all combined with an unknown route. The driver and navigator must work together to stay alert while looking for clues. Speed does not improve the score. Bring water for the team, and fuel up when you can there isn't any sweep's up to the team to make it back

This is a GTA/Social Road Rally. There are no points towards any championship. 

There are many variations of Road Rally—this is a "social" rally, which does not require participants to track time and accurate distance. Instead, each vehicle has a navigator who will read directions and figure out the best route, and the driver will follow the instructions. The goal is to drive and find the best route to maximize points. At the end of the rally, there will be a small award ceremony where winners will be announced.

The intention is to have a pleasant Sunday drive, following the speed limits and all local laws. Enjoy yourself, enjoy the view and spot some random stuff.

  1. Instagram class
