This quest will take you through some of Virginia's great historic landmarks and institutions, as well as its lesser known banjo filled areas, while testing your physical and mental limits. Brilliant codes, ciphers, clues and puzzles await! The winning team will receive the mother of all trophies - the Golden Gnome, a timeless testament to glory and genius and now named in tribute to a man who exemplified both qualities, the late Dr. Randy Pittman.
This Stanley Cup of brilliance will have your team name engraved upon it for all of time. The price includes admission to all locations, a great party with drinks the first night and an even better party with drinks the second night! Additional details will be provided shortly! Space is limited so reserve now.
Your team can sign up to race at either the beginner/intermediate level or at the advanced level. A Golden Gnome Pittman Cup will be given out to both the beginner/intermediate winning team and to the advanced winning team. Not sure about which level to signup for? Teams who have played each of the past eight years will be signing up for the advanced level. Normal folks will be signing up for the beginner/intermediate.
