Can You Win The Bridge Day Scavenger Hunt?

UPDATE: Subaru Bridge Day Scavenger Hunt Rules are now available. It depends: are you going to Bridge Day (the largest 1 day event in West Virginia)?

If so, there's a chance.

Here's the rundown- Subaru (our awesome flagship sponsor) is hosting a scavenger hunt -that's right, a scavenger hunt- on the bridge.  It's open to all BASE jumpers, rappellers, funnel cake eaters, official t-shirt wearers, and pretty much anybody that comes to Bridge Day.

What's the prize, you ask?  Try $1000 cash.

Cool, huh? 2nd place gets $500. 3rd gets $250 dollars. All you have to do is make it to bridge day, have a cell phone that you can text from, and be willing and able to have a little fun.  Seriously.  That's it.

It's going to work like this:

  • The Subaru folks will hide 5 (and only 5) codes at different places around the bridge.
  • You'll get a clue that describes where you'll find the first code.
  • When you find code #1 and text it in, you'll get a clue for code #2.
  • If you're the first person to text in all five codes, you win.

You can sign up by going to the Official Bridge Day website and entering your name and phone number over in the sidebar.  The first clue goes out to everyone on the list at 11 a.m., Saturday, October 16th, 2010 (that's Bridge Day, y'all).

So, what do you think?  Do you have what it takes to, um, text some stuff?  If so, Subaru and Bridge Day are ready to join you for some fun.

Come get your scavenger hunt on, everyone.  See you there.

UPDATE:  The scavenger hunt is limited to the first 2oo applicants.  Better hurry :-)
