$500 ROC Transit Day Treasure Hunt

Thursday, June 11th, 2015

ROC Transit Day Treasure Hunt [PHOTO: John Derycke, Derycke Motorsports Photography]
By Mike Governale

Last year, as part of ROC Transit Day external link, we planned a city-wide treasure hunt where teams followed a series of clues (for over 19 miles) to be the first to find a $500 cash prize at the end. The only catch: No motor vehicles. All teams were required to use public transit, walk, or bike. (it’s in the rules!)

This year (Thursday, June 18) we’re doing it again. It’s completely free to enter, but you must pre-register here external link before June 17. Right now we only have 6 teams signed up, so your odds would be pretty good; as long as you have a good working knowledge of Rochester.

Still not sure if you’ve got the right stuff? Take a look at the clues from LAST year and see how well you’d fare…

pssst… Flash Mob!

Monday, May 25th, 2015

On Thursday, June 18, at exactly 9:07a.m. we're going to start the biggest spontaneous dance party ever to take place in downtown Rochester. For the exact location and to learn the dance moves, watch the video. [IMAGE: ReconnectRochester.org]
By Mike Governale

Have you ever done something so crazy you started to question your own sanity? A few weeks ago a little voice inside my head said, “DUDE, you should totally organize a flash mob!” Most sane people would have chuckled to themselves and ignored the voice. Not me. I listened to it.

So now here I am, asking you to join me for what could be the most insane (yet wildly entertaining) 5 minutes that downtown Rochester has seen in quite a while. If you’re feeling a little bit crazy, the details are after the jump…
