Ho Ho Ho Holidays! Join The Civic’s Winter Scavenger Hunt

School’s out and people are getting ready for the holidays.  This is a great time to get together with family and friends.  Here at The Civic, we thought we might suggest a fun game to play together over the holidays.

Join our Winter Scavenger Hunt!  When you post your photos and videos to Facebook, every item will earn you points, with the top three scores winning prizes!

What, did you say prizes

Well, of course! The three top scores will win gift certificates for two to enjoy a movie, popcorn and drinks on us! All entries through January 1, 2019 at midnight will be considered as part of the tally.

Here’s how to do it:

  1. Take your photo or video.
  2. Post to Facebook @NelsonCTS with hashtags #CivicScavengers AND #100, #200, #500 or #1000, depending on the category you are fulfilling. (Important: You need to hashtag the points value to get it!)

A few important notes:

  • Don’t annoy anyone and please ask people first if you can take their pictures. Let’s keep it fun and friendly out there!
  • Keep it clean.  Posting images or videos that are demeaning or inappropriate will get you disqualified. (See the first note!)
  • Individual or team competitors are both permitted.  This might be more fun with a friend. 😉
