Discover Foster – Scavenger Hunt

Saturday - October 18, 2014 - beginning at 9:00 am


The Foster Preservation Society is sponsoring a Foster scavenger hunt to locate sites throughout Town using GPS coordinates.  A reward will go to those who find all of the locations.


We are not sending anyone into the forest or down a cart path.  You can use the GPS in your auto, a hand held unit or a smart phone with GPS capability.  While all locations are along a road, you may have to look around for the clue.  Everything will be spelled out on the entry form.  The idea is to see Foster.


There will be ten selected locations, with nine being given out at the beginning of your tour and the tenth being dependent on clues gathered at the first nine locations.  Upon completion, return your entry to the designated location and it will be entered in a drawing for a $100 cash prize.


Entry is simple, stop at the Town House at the start of the event, beginning at 9:00 a.m. October 18, 2014, and purchase an entry and a Tee Shirt for $25.  The shirts retail for $15 making the actual entry fee $10.  Follow the provided GPS coordinates in any order you wish, picking up the clue for the final destination and taking a photo of a member of the team/individual wearing the tee shirt, or with the shirt staged for the photo, with the site as background.  Return the entry form before 4:00 p.m. to the designated location.


Pack a lunch and have a picnic or stop at one of Foster’s restaurants for lunch, enjoy the fall air and travel at a leisurely pace. This is not a race…
