Sarasota’s most unique downtown scavenger hunt is back! The 2nd Annual Q Dash Scavenger Hunt, hosted by the Sarasota Young Professionals Group, will take place on Saturday, March 3, 2018, from 2-5 p.m. Teams of four will compete to decode clues and find landmarks throughout downtown Sarasota and earn points by posting on social media.
Wondering if you should join in on the fun? Here are 5 reasons why you’ll regret not signing up:
Compete for a Grand Prize package…and bragging rights.
Teams earn points by decoding clues and discovering landmarks throughout the city. When teams find a correct landmark, they will post a photo on social media, which alerts our Q Dash judges to add points to their total score. The team with the most points will win a Grand Prize package of goodies from local businesses and organizations, including Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium, Escape Countdown, Bookstore1, Penzey’s Spices, and more! Even if you don’t win the Grand Prize, there are still opportunities to win prizes with the Judge’s Choice for Most Creative Photo, Best Team Costume, and Best Wrong Answer.
It’s a cheap, fun way to get your team out of the office and do some real team-building.
Looking to re-energize your staff and help them connect outside the office walls? The Q Dash is a wonderful team-building experience! Learn about your staff’s areas of strength and how they work together to solve problems in a new context, all while having FUN!
Being new to Sarasota can be an advantage.
You might wonder it life-long Sarasotans will be more likely to find the landmarks, but that simply isn’t true. Q Dash Co-Chair, Andrea Knies, says “Having a diverse team really makes a big difference. Newcomers to the area will have fresh eyes, and spot things that those who grew up here easily overlook.”
Discover a side of downtown you didn’t know.
The Q Dash is all about noticing. One of the common themes we heard from our participants last year was that they noticed interesting buildings, public art, and other quirky landmarks that they hadn’t before; even after walking past them hundreds of times. In the year since our first Q Dash Scavenger Hunt, we’ve added lots of new landmarks and expanded the bonus menu—keeping even the most seasoned Sarasotans on their toes!
