The Municipality of Highlands East is the Geocaching Capital of Canada. On Saturday May 12th this incredible beautiful corner of the Haliburton Highlands will serve as the starting point for Tupper’s Amazing Race around the world of Nursery Rhymes.
Rub-A-Dub-Dub, join 3 men in a tub and embark on a physically gruelling adventure that will push you to your absolute limit. There will be obstacles to overcome and tasks that you may be hesitant to complete. At the end of each leg there will be a pitstop. The last team to arrive… may be eliminated.
If you make it to the final leg and are first to cross the finishing line you will win:
A year of travel for two at your own expense.
A pair of 2018 toy cars.
Gas for life from Heinz
½ a Million dollars or ½ of the total Amazing Race entry fees
(whichever is the lesser of the two amounts)
AND bragging rights as the winner of Tupper’s Amazing Nursery Rhyme Race
Meet and Greet Event with Refreshments and Muffins 10:00-11:00
Register your team for the race before 11:00
Then Hickory Dickory Dock,
Race starts at 11:00 O’Clock
(Plan on racing for the remainder of the day)
Saturday May 12, 2018
Fun for all ages
Meet 'n' Greet Event 10:00 - 11:00 at the Lloyd Watson Memorial Centre
Race entry fee: $5.00 per participant, 16 and older (½ goes toward covering expenses, the other ½ goes to the winning team)
Race starts 11:00 sharp
A pencil and paper might come in handy
This is an all-day event, dress for the weather and, as Wee Willie Winkie suggest, get a good night’s sleep beforehand
Any size team is acceptable, but we recommend 2-4 adults per team to ensure everyone has fun participating.
Log your “Will Attend” at GC7K5X4 and indicate how many will be on your team and their geocaching names.
Hi Race Participants
My "gruelling"(wink, wink,) race is based mainly in the "Downtown Core" of Wilberforce. No deep bush tromping, so even if the bugs are out by May 12th you won't have to fight off too many of them.
Looking forward to seeing everyone in May,
