Homecoming VIP Challenge

Attention Sharks!

#SharksHC14 is upon us and we want you to have the best Bash experience yet. This year, the Homecoming Committee has put together a photo challenge for an amazing prize--a limo ride to the Homecoming Bash and your very own VIP section with your friends!

Here’s how it works:

  1. Download the GooseChase iPhone or Android app.
  2. Sign up for a team username (up to 10 team members may login under the same account).
  3. Join the game by searching for "#SharksHC14 VIP Challenge" from within the app (click the search button and enter the game name).
  4. Start completing missions when the game is started!

Each mission has a name, description and point value. Photo proof is required to receive points for a mission. Just select the mission you want to complete from the mission list, take a picture with the phone's camera and press the submit button. You'll receive the points right away, but remember that all photos are subject to review. This means that you can lose those points at any time if the photo doesn’t match the assigned task.

The results of the challenge will be announced at SEA Thursday on November 13 taking place at the Library Quad from noon-1:00 p.m.

Happy hunting!
