Teams are gearing up for the inaugural Door County Treasure Hunt to be held Sept. 30. Registration is still open for the event that will send teams out looking for clues and accumulating points for prizes. The Treasure Hunt is presented by Write On, Door County to raise funds for the organization’s programs that inspire writing and reading and bring people together through stories.
“This is the beginning of a tradition,” said Write On, Executive Director Jerod Santek. “A lot of effort has gone into planning interactive and fun challenges. We believe people will come back year after year to compete in what will become a favorite Door County event.”
Teams will spend the day working through a booklet of clues, which will take them to various places across the northern section of the county. (Next year’s hunt will focus on the county’s southern half.) The event is not timed, and teams can work at their own pace as they explore locations related to history, nature, food, art and other treasures of the county.
A light supper and music at Sawyer Farms in Egg Harbor will finish off the event as teams gather for the final tallying of points. High scorers will win cash prizes of $1,000, $500, and $250.
Registration for the event is open at doorcountytreasurehunt.com, where additional event information is available. Families, co-workers, and friends are encouraged to participate. A team can be made up of two to five people, all traveling in one car with one clue booklet. All ages are welcome.
