Halloween Techno Zombie Geo Cache Hunt! Blog Post – October 4, 2017

Ooooooooh! this is going to be fun! LOL!  We are super busy behind the scenes, with routing the game (6 routes this year), gathering pieces and props and materials, printing up the passport booklets, sorting buckets and goodybags and of course having pre-halloween fun scaring the daylights out of each other every so often. LOL!  If you haven’t bought your ticket yet, please do so in advance of the event since we are expecting it to be a little busier this year.  You can purchase them at this URL

We have some wonderful new sponsors on board and would like to give a special shout out to Billy’s Pancake House in Palatine, Noah’s Hair Salon in Palatine, and Vini’s Pizza in Palatine.  Thank you so very much for joining us in the zombie game!

In case you haven’t heard, we have added zombies to this year’s event.  We are still accepting registrations to be a zombie.  You can contact us at hallowentechnozombie2025@gmail.com if you would like to be a volunteer zombie and join us in having one heck of a great time!  Be sure to include your name, email address, phone number, age and a current photo.

Remember, the game takes place between 9am and 7pm on Saturday, October 28th..  You don’t need to be there the entire length of time.  We will assign the locations and times on Thursday October 26th at the orientation session. Thanks!

Till then, I hope you all have a great autumn!  Peace

Halloween Techno Zombie Geo Cache Hunt! Blog Post – June 27, 2017

The zombies are beginning to crawl from their caves!  This Saturday you can see them in the Palatine Parade at 11 am, July 1st. Come watch and grab a chance at a goody bag from the Chamber of Commerce.

 

The routes for the 3rd Annual Halloween Techno Zombie Geo Cache Hunt! ni Palatine are coming together quickly for October 28th!

Welcome to Glow Inc.! A sponsor for this year’s game!  We look forward to having you visit and play with us!

Thank you to Smart Gadget Fix – The official Training Sponsor for the Hunt!  If you would like some free lessons on how to track GPS coordinates on your cellphone to play the game… visit Smart Gadget Fix in Palatine and they can help.

Welcome Pita Pita!  A new sponsor this year!  Those falafels are awesome!  I won’t call them Zombie turds because they taste so good!.. but my imagination does tend to wander once in a while LOL! We LOVE YOUR FOOD!

Welcome Vini’s Pizza! Thank you for sponsoring our Crew/Team event work night/party. Your pizza’s rock and help keep us from succumbing to being zombies ourselves 🙂

We have a lot of businesses and organizations already signed up to participate.  We are always open to having more.  There is still space.  If you would like your business to be a location on the hunt, please contact us at halloweentechnozombie2015 {@} gmail {.} com

We have hung a stack of posters at GreekFest this year in Palatine.  Last weekend the event attracted 15,000 people.  I hope you all get a chance to come and play in the game this year. Greekfest is an awesome time every year.   Music, dancing, entertainment, vendors, and the most delicious Greek Food anywhere! It takes place annually at St. Nectarios Church in Palatine.  We could hear the music all the way to the office. We were hoping it wouldn’t awaken too many zombies this early in the season yet.  But they are crawling out.  Hope to see you all at the parade on Saturday!  Peace!

It’ Coming!……

The behind the scenes magic has begun. Webs knitted together to form the infrastructure, the routings, the tracking, and the clues. Businesses and sponsors are already joining the hunt for this year. Players have been patiently waiting, and inquiring about when ticket sales begin…… soon… soon….soon.

I am filling the cauldron with all the necessary ingredients to make this years game extra fun.

OBTW….. if you’re a bicyclist….. I would like to invite you especially to join the hunt on your bike. There are special zombie routes just for you!

Lol!! (Wicked laugh)

Tune in for more…. soon….soon…

Cool Game!!!!

haloweentechno-square-rectangleThe game this year is really shaping up to be a lot of fun!  I have to tell you that this is the only event where you get to go into local participating business and play with them for 1 day of the year! where they won’t try to sell you anything or try to lure you into  signing up or registering for anything!  AND the players get to vote on which business had the funniest, scariest and most memorable experience.  Where else can you do that?! AND get in for free to the various fun venues in town all on one day for one low ticket price!

AND if you  bring a food item for donation to the Palatine Food Pantry, you get extra bonus points towards your game and the prizes.

Thank you to our wonderful sponsors for helping us keep the ticket prices low and making it more affordable for families, groups of friends, teams and business to participate!
