Where:Begins inside the Independence Visitor Center, 599 Market Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States, 19106
Join us on Sunday, March 8th, for the 70th Full Moon Rallye. The walking rallye will begin just inside the Independence Visitor Center (6th and Market - enter the Market Street doors and look for us on the right side). Instructions will be given out at 12:30pm and the rallye begins at 1pm. Teams will have four hours to walk around the area following instructions and looking for answers to clues before finishing at Iron Hill Center City. A rallye is basically a scavenger hunt on foot. Each team (of 2 people) is given a list of directions that they must follow to navigate through the course (e.g. Turn left at Wawa, or proceed straight until you come to a statue of Shakespeare). Along the way, the teams have to find answers to questions (e.g. Where do you find a $1.99 Super Hoagie?, or Who built the Shakespeare statue?). There are different types of questions with different point values (the harder ones are worth more). The team that answers the most questions correctly wins! The course is designed to be walked in less than two hours, so there should be no need to hurry - unless you are going way too slow. Along the way, your team may also have to buy certain items (called retrievables) to prove you were at a location, or to be used later in the rallye. You do not need to know the area! Registration is for a team of two. Each team should bring a pen/pencil, clipboard, $5 (in case you need to get something on the course) and a cellphone. This rallye will again benefit the Idiopathic Ridiculopathy Consortium, whose mission is to bring classic absurdist theatre to an international audience in the Philadelphia region. These rarely-produced, renowned plays explore and illuminate human purpose and meaning, promoting reflection about the human condition in a contemporary world.
