all of the hard work that your participants have put in to
finishing your hunt, do what you can to make sure you reward
them in some way at the end of the hunt. There are lots of
ways to accomplish this (not all of which cost money.) However,
you choose to reward your adventurers, just be sure to do
so in whatever matter is appropriate and in ways you are able.
are some suggestions for 'beefing up' the ending to your hunt:
you've incorporated a storyline of ANY kind to your hunt,
bring about some sort of resolution to the story itself. Depending
the storyline you are using, consider having the lost item
they are searching for present at the last location or a volunteer
dressed up like the person they are searching for (again,
depending on your own storyline.) This can also be accomplished
by writing out an ending to your 'story' and handing them
out to the participants (or simply make them available) at
the final location of the hunt.
Consider providing small, token gifts to all of the teams
(consider whether to provide all the teams with one or just
the ones that complete the hunt successfully.) These could
be "You Made It" t-shirts or mugs, or simply a small
bag of candy. For the more budget conscious, consider printed
Provide food or some sort of refreshment at the final location.
Remember, your adventurers will have been running and/or racing
during the entire time of the hunt. Some light refreshments
will be a VERY welcoming as they arrive at the final destination
to the hunt.
Consider having a dramatic ending to your story
on the storyline you are using. This could take the form of
a final sword fight between two characters, a dramatic defeat
by a villain, etc. Use your imagination, but make it exciting.
