It’s that time of year again and we have started planning the Gumball Rally for 2019!
For those of you wondering what the Gumball Rally is, think of it like a scavenger hunt of sorts. Instead of finding things, you’ll be completing tasks (and documenting them) for points. These tasks can range from really simple to extremely embarrassing, The more difficult the task is, the higher the point value it is. This list is TOP SECRET and will be presented to you on the day of the event.
We will meet at 9:45 AM in front of the Starbucks in American village. The race will officially start at 10AM. This year, if you are late, one point will be deducted for every minute you are late between the meet up time and the starting time. Capiche?!
The event will run until 5 PM when all teams have to reconvene at the end of the day.
You will compete in groups of at least 2, and a maximum of 4 people. Each team is only allowed ONE car and ONE designated driver. Please come up with a group name and a team uniform (refer to event picture above). If you’d like to participate but can’t find a team, please message me and I’ll do my best to find you one! The cost to enter will be 1000 yen per person. Each team will play for a charity (more details to be announced later). All proceeds from the rally will be donated to the winning team’s charity. To win the game, a team simply has to rack up the highest number of points by completing as many tasks as you can. Like I said, every task has different point values, so it’s up to you and your strategic skills to make the most of it in a limited time frame.
To submit proof of task completions:
- Every time you complete a challenge, document it by taking a video/photo of it and post it to your team Facebook, in real time
- Label each upload with the item number (from the list you’ll receive on the day),
- Note if you think you’ve qualified for any bonus points on offer (this helps us tally points and not miss your bonuses).
No submissions will be accepted after 5 pm.
So come out and support a great cause and have some awesome fun!!!!!
