Get Ready Goosechase is returning in 2022 with participants of all ages to form a team to take part in the scavenger hunt competition.
The Bundaberg Regional Council initiative aims to teach members of the community about disaster hazards and emergency situations through an interactive scavenger hunt.
Council’s Disaster Management portfolio spokesperson Cr Greg Barnes said last year’s event was only open to school students but in 2022, everyone was encouraged to take part.
“This year the competition is open to groups of all ages so there is no excuse not to get the entire family involved and have some fun, especially during the school holidays!” Cr Barnes said.
“Teams will compete against each other, with new missions added, with a number of great prizes to be won and lots of fun to be had.”
Prizes will be up for grabs in each location with special giveaways and challenges also occurring, so teams do not have to be the top point scorer to win a prize.
Missions will require teams to submit photos or videos, answer questions or go to selected sites using a free app called Goosechase.
All those under 18 years old need parental consent, while you must be over 13 to download the GooseChase app.
Those under 13 are still encouraged to be part of the competition, as long as the team member with the app is over 13.
Teams are required to register a team captain and a name, which all individual members will use to register via the website here.
Teams are encouraged to register by 20 June so that they can collect their race kits before the game officially starts, but late registration will be taken until 27 June.
You can register a team in more than one location, but please note that each location is a separate game and points from different locations are not tallied together.
The free scavenger hunt kicks off on Saturday 25 June with three separate games running in Bundaberg, Childers and Gin Gin until Sunday 10 July.
The Community Resilience program has been fully funded by the National Bushfire Recovery Agency under the Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements.
