Fleeceworks Rolex KY 3 Day Scavenger Hunt
Sunday, April 23, 2017—Are you headed to Rolex? Is your shopping route planned? Is this a girlfriend getaway, a once in a lifetime trip to see the world’s top eventers, or maybe even an aspirational look at your future riding career?
No matter what brings your to RK3DE, Judy McSwain and Fleeceworks (Booth 117), along with Eventing Nation, are ready to make your Rolex experience even better. Get a team together for the second annual Fleeceworks Rolex Three Day Scavenger Hunt! The grand prize is a clinic at your facility with professional eventer Tamie Smith of Next Level Eventing. Each day of Rolex, you’ll have trivia questions to answer and “to-do’s” that can only happen at Rolex!
How Do I Enter?
Get your team together! Teams of not less than 2 and no more than 4 people must register to compete in the Fleeceworks RK3DE Scavenger Hunt. Now this isn’t going to be easy. But it will be fun and guarantees you a unique Rolex experience! Name your team (let’s keep it PG folks). Be creative. Email your team members' names (and individual email addresses) and team name to Elizabeth Howell (Elizabeth@sheridesipay.com) starting RIGHT NOW and no later than Thursday, April 28 at 5 p.m. EST. Or send a Facebook IM to Fleeceworks with the info. We'll then assign you a hashtag to use on Instagram so that you can post your entries. Elizabeth will email you a complete list of rules and requirements.
What Do I Do When I Get to Rolex?
Well, there will be two types of tasks—daily trivia questions and then a list of Scavenger Hunt To-Do’s. Come to the Fleeceworks booth (117) to collect your daily trivia questions and tasks from Judy. Turn your written answers in to Judy or Elizabeth at the booth. This MUST be completed each day of Rolex competition. Turn your finished sheet in once completed after answering the last trivia question Sunday morning.
Be prepared for trivia questions that cover:
Historic moments of Rolex.
Career achievements of Rolex horses and riders.
Questions about Fleeceworks saddle pads, natural fabrics and Tamie Smith’s ride Fleeceworks Royal aka “Rory.”
For example, some of last year’s questions included:
Who was the first horse to win the Rolex Kentucky 4 star and how much did he cost?
How many mares have won the Rolex Kentucky 4 star?
What was the only fence from the 1968 World Championships that was left on the course for the inagural RK3D 4 star?
And then, you’ll have a few, ahem, tasks to complete.
The Scavenger Hunt Task List
Your team has been accepted to the hunt. You’re ready. Come to the Fleeceworks booth, 117, to receive the task list that must be completed to successfully finish your team’s entry. Complete each item on the checklist and then post your results on Instagram or Facebook with the hashtag #RK3DEHUNT17.
Some of these things will be easy, such as “Follow Fleeceworks on Facebook and Instagram.”
Some may be a little more, shall we say….challenging? Possibilities include:
“Take a photo of a Rolex rider,” or “Get a sick selfie in the Land Rover Extreme Stable Experience booth,” or “Film a mannequin video of your team in action at Rolex.”
How Do I Earn Extra Entries?
You can earn additional entries by completing additional tasks that will be assigned each day. Possibilities include things like: “Take a selfie with any Rolex horse,” and receive an extra entry.
“Take a selfie with a Fleeceworks rider at the Fleeceworks autograph signing, Saturday after cross country in the Fleeceworks booth,” earn one extra entry. You’ll receive a complete list when you check in with Judy.
How Will the Winning Team be Chosen?
All teams who turn in completed checklists by the end of competition on Sunday morning and have had their entries verified by Fleeceworks, will be entered into the drawing to determine the winning team. Bonus entries will be added. Winner will be announced the week after Rolex by Fleeceworks and Eventing Nation.
Do I Have to be at Rolex to Participate?
Yes. But, we will be running online promotions and specials during the week of Rolex, so be sure to visit our Facebook and Instagram pages for details!
