Rules and Registration
The grand prize for our Amazing Race will be a Nexus 7. 2nd and 3rd place prizes will also be given. You must be present for Easter worship service at Little Jewel's Learning Center (4117 E. Oakland, Bloomington) on Sunday, March 31 at 10:30 a.m. in order to receive prizes.
RULES: The event will be Saturday, March 30, 2013 from 11:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. We will take registrations through Wednesday, March 27 and require a minimum of eight teams for "The Amazing Race" to occur, with a maximum of sixteen teams allowed. You must be 18 or older to particpate and no one already connected with Network Christian Church can compete. Once 16 teams have registered a waiting list will be created in the order of registrations received in case anyone needs to drop out. By participating you recognize that neither Network Christian or any of our participating partners are liable for any accidents or injuries that may occur during the race. By registering here you agree to these terms.
DETAILS: The race will begin at Rollingbrook Park (1002 N. Hershey Rd, Bloomington) at 11 a.m. and will take you to 8 different locations where you will ahve to complete 8 callenges by 4 p.m. Once we start at Rollingbrook you will receive a clue that will lead to your first challenge site. At this point teams will be staggered by teams of two so that not all teams are at the same sites at the same time for management purposes. Once arriving at your challenge site you must check in with a representative of Network Christian to receive your challenge. The winner will be determined not by the overall time of start to finish, but by the accumulated time it takes to complete all 8 tasks once on site in order to prevent "racing" from one location to another. Each site will have someone from Network Christian who will record the time it takes to complete that particular task. Once the race ends we will add up the times and the winners will be named and prizes given the next day during our church service at Little Jewel's Learning Center (4117 E. Oakland), which begins at 10:30 a.m.. YOU MUST BE PRESENT TO WIN.
If you are unable to complete a task you will be assessed a 20 minute penalty. Also, if you struggle with a clue you may "buy" a tip for 5 minutes of time. However, you may also earn time by bringing to the start of the race donated nonperishable items for a local food pantry which we will collect. This of course is optional, but you may bring up to a maximum of 20 items per team; each item will credit you with 15 seconds for a maxium of 5 minutes to your credit, which will then be subtracted off your total accumlated time. Upon completion of each task we will have you sign off on the amount of time it took you to complete the challenge and all times will made available on Sunday when the winners are announced. By registering here you agree to these terms.
