Queensland Federation of Aquarium Societies

Invites you to participate in the;

“Great Treasure Hunt”

Saturday 20th April 2013.

The “Great Treasure Hunt” is all about having fun and enjoying the company of other aquarium enthusiasts.

You will be traveling to a number of different aquariums shops, both north and south of the city. For lunch there will be a sausage sizzle in a park where there will also be some activities. Finishing off the day everyone will meet at a final destination for BBQ dinner and presentation of prizes.

PRIZES ? Yes there will be prizes, lots of them, around $1000.00 worth.

There will be prizes awarded for all sorts of things including; the person with most items collected off the list, the most correct answers and heaps of others.

Each of the shops you will visit has kindly donated at least one prize.

There will be two groups those starting on the north side of Brisbane and those starting on the south side of Brisbane. Each group will start at the location furthest out and work their way in to a central location for lunch. After lunch each group will swap sides of town and travel to the furthest location out, then work their way back to a different location for the presentation and dinner.

At every location you will be asked to complete an activity to obtain your next instruction envelope. Each envelope contains directions to follow that will tell you how to get to your next location. You should read these carefully before setting off to the next location.

This is a Treasure hunt and you will need to collect some items along the way. The list of items you need to collect is enclosed in the first instruction envelope. This can be obtained after completing the activity at the first location. There will be at least one item you need to collect at every location you visit.

You can travel by yourself but it is recommended to work as a group of at least two (2), it is up to you. Along the way your instructions will contain some simple questions, which you will need to record on an answer sheet, so read the questions carefully and watch out for the answers.

While traveling around we have allowed enough time for you to spend at least 30minutes at each shop so take your time and have a good look around. You never know you may find that Treasure you have been looking for.

Traveling time between each location will vary from 15 minutes to about 30 minutes. At no stage will you asked to travel on any toll roads.

The starting time is up to you but if you start any later than 10:00am you will not be able to spend time having a good look in each shop and you may miss lunch as it will only be available between 12:30 noon and 2:00pm in the park. The BBQ dinner will start at 6.30pm and be followed by the prize presentations.

This is NOT a race so PLEASE do not speed.

If you are interested and wish to participate just email gday@firstclassaccounts.com before 11.00pm on the 6th April, giving your name and your suburb and how many will be in your group for catering purposes.

You will receive your first set on instructions by return email on Friday night 19th April.
