Memories that Matter Employee Scavenger Hunt

About the Game - June 1st - September 1st

Are you ready to get out and explore your new home and surrounding area? Our local year round team has created a game that will get you out exploring little "gnome secrets" throughout the valley. We’ll be awarding prizes for the top three teams overall, but even if you aren’t competing for the overall title there are opportunities to score cash and prizes along the way.

The game will go live Wednesday, June 1st and run through September 1st. Individuals and teams (not to exceed 4) may join at any time throughout the season. Be strategic when creating your team as there will be different categories based around hiking, creativity and trivia. It may also help to have a team member with transportation. This year we are releasing all the missions up front with all the same points and a few opportunities to win cash and prizes through additional missions throughout the year.


1st Place: $800 cash prize

2nd Place: $500 cash prize

3rd Place: $300 cash prize

The game is managed through an App called GooseChase, and requires a smartphone or tablet device. If you do not have a device or transportation (which will help with many missions) you can team up with others to combine resources. You are also free to be a “team of one” if you prefer to go it alone. Instructions for how to get started can be found below.

Good luck, and while playing please Have Fun, but don’t forget to Be Safe (stay on trails, carry bear spray, don’t approach wildlife, don’t hike alone), and Do Right (no cheating).

Rules and guidelines

  • Participation is optional and voluntary.

  • You are free to be a team of one, but group teams are not to exceed a maximum of 4 players (When creating your team consider including hikers for the more strenuous hiking challenges, creatives, and trivia buffs as there will be challenges in all of these categories. Might also help to have someone with transportation.)

  • Submitted photos will be audited periodically and may be dismissed if we feel the mission they were submitted for was not completed.

  • For photo submissions we ask that you create a team mascot/logo/symbol to be visible in each photo (even if you draw it and hold it up on a sign), or if you happen to forget any of these things make sure the photo is taken with holding double peace signs up for 2022. If these are not included in the photo we will ask you to resubmit with the appropriate symbols.

  • Participation must not interfere with regularly scheduled work duties.

  • Prizes will only be awarded to active employees in good standing.

  • While all employees are welcome and encouraged to play, senior leadership will be excluded from receiving prizes.

  • Have Fun, but don’t forget to Be Safe (stay on trails, carry bear spray, don’t approach wildlife, don’t hike alone), and Do Right (no cheating).
