Do you have what it takes to complete the Quest? SMCR Dragon Quest is a scavenger hunt for puzzle pieces at locations around Calvert and St. Mary’s Counties. Chariot teams will have the opportunity to win prizes while trying to decipher clues to determine where to find their next puzzle piece. Each chariot team will be asked to complete a “challenge” at each stop to gain the puzzle piece and next clue. The Quest will not be timed; it is not a race.
What’s a chariot team? A chariot team is comprised of one motor vehicle or “chariot” filled with your social-distance-friendly crew. Teams are encouraged to dress up according to a team theme and to decorate their chariot! There will be prizes awarded for creativity, so really think about your team theme.
What are the registration fees? Each chariot rider, age 16 and above, pays a $25 registration fee to participate. Children ride free! To be eligible for prizes, each chariot team will be encouraged to raise at least an additional $100 to benefit SMCR. After registering, SMCR will build a customized fundraiser page for your team. Additional prizes will be awarded based on the amount of funds raised.
What are the prizes? Each team that raises the minimum $100* will be eligible for the 3rd place prize of $250! Each team that raises $300+* will be eligible for the 2nd place prize of $500! Each team that raises $500+* will be eligible for the top prize of $1000! Superlative prizes will be awarded in categories such as “Best Dressed Chariot Team” and “Best Chariot Decorations” among others! The chariot team which raises the most money will receive an award of $250! *Amount does not include registration fees.
What organization does the event support? Southern Maryland Community Resources (SMCR, Inc.) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that creates programs and events for individuals with developmental differences. SMCR promotes inclusive social, recreational, and educational opportunities in which these individuals can contribute their unique gifts and develop their potential.
