cityHUNT is proud to partner with TEAM CHALLENGE to present…

the West Village Bohemian Grand Prix!

Saturday, July 16 @ 4:30 PM

[a fundraiser to help fight Crohn’s and Colitis]

Writers, painters, playwrights, musicians, thinkers, drinkers and revolutionaries have long called the West Village home. Join us as we abandon inhibition and barrel through the gorgeously tangled boulevards of this storied neighborhood. Carpe Diem, friends! Carpe Diem! Here’s what you’re supporting: Team Challenge is the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation’s endurance training and fundraising program. We are dedicated to running/walking 13.1 miles in efforts to raise awareness and funds for a cure of IBD. IBD consist of Crohn’s and Ulcerative Colitis, two chronic and often debilitating digestive diseases that impact 1.4 million Americans. The funds we raise through Team Challenge directly benefit the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation (CCFA) in support of it’s mission to find a cure and improve the quality of life for those affected by these diseases. By participating in this game, played upon one of the most spectacular game boards in history, you are helping to support Team Challenge in their important mission to help find a cure for Crohn’s and Colitis Disease. High five yourself! You’re doing good by having fun! Nice.

Here’s how it worksIn teams of 2 to 4, you will go forth into one of New York’s splendid neighborhoods, racing through the boulevards and back alleys as you solve clues, puzzles, complete challenges and dares, photographing the hilarious lunacy as you go. There will be too many tasks to complete within the allotted time and, while this is a race and the first three teams to check in will receive bonus points, that doesn’t guarantee victory. Cleverness, creativity, strategy and boldness will most assuredly rack up the greatest number of points and win the day.

Yes. Spiderman DOES wear a fanny pack

WHERE: Kenny’s Castaways, 157 Bleecker Street (Corner of Bleecker and Thompson) WHEN: Check in begins at 4:30 pm on July 16th. The Hunt begins at 5:30 pm (ON THE DOT!) and lasts a maximum of three hours. Teams that do not check in at the final location with a cityHUNT guide by 8:30 (ON THE DOT!) will be docked 100 points which will be devastating to your chances of victory. HOW MUCH: The entry fee for this Urban Adventure is $40 per person. Teams will be composed of two to four participants. Pay securely by clicking the Pay Pal button below. TEAMS: Buying a ticket for the hunt enables you, individually, to participate in the hunt. But this is a team competition. The teams are from 2 to 4 people. Make sure everyone has bought a ticket (they’ll be on our checklist when you arrive to register) and tell us at that time who is on your team. We also highly recommend selecting a sweet team name. The Lightning Bolt Unicorns, for instance. Or how’s about The Fastidious Busy-Bodies? No, no! The Morbidly Obese Kittens! Well, whatever you decide… 20 extremely subjective points will be awarded to the best team name. WHAT TO WEAR: Be comfortable. Wear supportive shoes as you’ll be covering some ground. Team costumes / uniforms are highly recommended and are worth up to 30 bonus points based on creativity, ludicrousness and general radicalness. If it’s hot, bring a water bottle. Passing out from heat exhaustion is NOT allowed. WHAT TO BRING: A smart phone is recommended for the hunt (as well as everyday life in NYC). You will need to take pictures to prove you have completed tasks, will need to look up historical information and will need to have a map to find challenge locations. Otherwise you will need to bring a digital camera, a map, compass, and an encyclopedic knowledge of the history of the West Village. WHAT TO BE: Prepared. For anything. Because anything could happen.

Life is short... Freak out on a firetruck!

Little hint to win the event: DON'T FALL OUT OF HOT AIR BALLOONS!

Do something right in the world (and have a heck of an evening!)
