I would like to make it clear that Tre.ventures are NOT "treasure hunts".
A "treasure hunt" is usually the following - ONE clue leading to ONE location with ONE winner that can sometimes take months or years to find. Everyone else that participates, gets nothing and never get to feel the satisfaction of solving anything. The treasure is usually hidden at the location which leaves the risk of a someone finding it randomly. There are all sorts of legal issues of taking something that has been hidden on public property. And then there are the "treasure hunts" that never finish or deliver what they promise, which also gives the term a bad name and why people ask - is this a scam?
A Bad Pirate Tre.venture is NONE of those things - on purpose ! There is also NOTHING buried, so please don't disturb things while on your adventure.
A Bad Pirate Tre.venture WILL:
- Only last a week or two, local to your area.
- It will involve multiple clues and locations.
- Everyone will solve some clues and get that personal satisfaction.
- Prizes will be won by the first TEN people to solve all the clues.
- All placement prizes WILL be awarded.
- There are even prizes you can win along the way.
- The prizes are not hidden at the locations - prizes will be shipped directly to you.
- Only those that purchase a Hunt Key can win a prize, period !
In essence it's simply an outdoor adventure. The prizes are a bonus. The real treasure is the quality time spent outdoors with family and friends while the problems of the world fade away temporarily.
I hope this has cleared up any confusion. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
