Saturday, May 1 at 10AM through Sunday, May 2 at 5PM

Join the SOPAC Scavenger Hunt on a quest to beat the clock! Complete missions, earn points and take the lead to victory. Missions range from text, photo, or location-based instructions for you to complete at your own pace during the weekend of May 1-2.

How to Play

Once you’ve purchased your tickets, download the free GooseChase mobile app found on Android Google Play or iPhone App Store. You’ll be able to access the game on GooseChase on Saturday, May 1, 2021 anytime after 10AM. Missions must be completed by Sunday, May 2, 2021 at 5PM. Additional instructions for access and setup will be emailed to ticket buyers prior to May 1.

On GooseChase, you’ll be able to access the game on Saturday, May 1, 2021 anytime after 10AM. Missions must be completed by Sunday, May 2, 2021 at 5PM.

Once the game has started, you’ll be presented with missions you can complete by submitting a photo/video, text, or GPS check-in. To complete the mission, select it from the list and hit the “Snap Evidence” button.

Make sure to complete missions accurately! If the mission states to post a photo with a dog, and you post a photo with a dog displayed on a computer, you might lose points! We want the game to be fair, but also a fun challenge. If you go above and beyond with your post and take a photo with 10 dogs, you might get bonus points!

You’ll be able to keep track of how you’re doing with the leaderboard. Notifications from SOPAC will come through the GooseChase app as new missions become available over the course of the game.
