Teams are starting to form and the fun is about to begin for the annual Variety Scavenger Hunt, taking place Saturday, Feb. 10 at the Westwind Pub.
“This year is our 29th year,” said Joe Roodbol, one of the organizers. “Next year will be the big one—30 years. I’ve done it every year,” he said.
Teams must be small enough to fit into one vehicle, Roodbol said. The hunt will take teams all over the Alberni Valley following clues. The winning team will be presented with the Irv Wilson Memorial Trophy, named for one of the original group members that started the scavenger hunt in 1989.
The scavenger hunt starts at noon on Feb. 10 at the Westwind. Teams must pre-register. Team pledge sheets are available at the pub on Cherry Creek Road. Proceeds go toward Variety the Children’s Charity.
After the hunt, prizes, food and dancing will take place at the Westwind.
