Wetzel County Relay For Life Scavenger Hunt Is Detailed

By Staff | Jun 16, 2010

The Wetzel Chronicle Relay for Life Team is hosting a scavenger hunt to raise funds for the relay. If you have never been on a scavenger hunt, you have missed out on a fun event.

The event is set for June 17 at 5:30 p.m. The object of the hunt is to collect as many items as possible from a list that will be available at West Virginia Community College on the day of the event. There will be 20 to 40 objects on the list and bonus points will be awarded for special challenges.

A digital camera will be required for each car with team participants.

The teams are to return to WVNCC no later than 7 p.m.

All items on the list can be found in the New Martinsville area. No one will view this list before the event. Speed is of the essence. One strategy is to have a designated driver, while others rush to get the object.

The list will have the approval of Wetzel County Sheriff James Hoskins and New Martinsville Police Chief Tim Cecil.

Bruce Crawford, sports editor of the Wetzel Chronicle, will check all pictures to be sure they are of the requested object.

There is a $10 fee for each car carrying team members or for an individual wanting to get into the hunt. All members of a team must ride in a single vehicle only.

Some nice prizes have been donated for the winners, including Pittsburgh Pirate tickets and Kennywood Park tickets.

The event will not only be fun, it will raise money for a worthy cause. This event is in memory of the late Judy Hill, a Wetzel Chronicle columnist, who died from complications of cancer.

For more information or to contribute toward the hunt call Crawford at the newspaper office, 304-455-3300.
