Rotary Club launches Fernie wide scavenger hunt

The City Ramble Trail Scramble encourages participants to explore Fernie’s trails and streets

The Rotary Club of Fernie launched a summer long scavenger hunt on July 1. The City Ramble Trail Scramble is a family friendly event that runs until September 7, inviting locals to explore the streets and trails of Fernie.

Each Wednesday, the Rotary Club releases 10 clues corresponding to locations within Fernie, with clues varying in difficulty each week.

To submit guesses, participants must take selfies at each location, either emailing the Rotary Club their guess, or posting their photos to social media. Five guesses can be purchased for $10.

“This is a fundraiser for the Fernie Rotary Club to support projects in the community throughout the year,” said Aysha Haines, treasurer of the Rotary Club of Fernie. “Rotary was looking to create an event that locals and visitors alike could participate in and have fun exploring all that Fernie has to offer, both in and around town, and out on the trails.”

Each week, two locations will be randomly selected for prizes, with the first to guess correctly winning the prize. Every correct guess earns an entry into a grand prize draw to win a $500 gift card to a Fernie business of the winner’s choosing.
