The event will take place on Saturday, April 27th at 2:30 p.m. at Black Rock in Roscoe Village. Each team will have to answer clues and complete tasks that are thrown at them along the way. Oh, and it’s a digital scavenger-hunt, so participants will have to bring a digital camera along to document each step they complete!
