The Grail Hunt is a scavenger hunt open to all who have raced at least one race in the Cross Crusade series in the same calendar year. The Grail Hunt starts Aug. 25, 2013, and concludes the date of the CC Series Awards Ceremony. The Grail Hunt is conducted on public property in and around Portland with the possible exception of one prize in Hood River and one prize in Bend.
Hunters will look for (13) Orange 20th Anniversary ICONS, which will be placed in plain sight. Clues to the locations of the Icons will be posted on the Cross Crusade's Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter accounts and will be posted on the Cross Crusade web site. You will know the Icon when you see it: it is a bright orange painted CC Cross with the number 20.
Within 100 meters of each icon a Relic OR THE HOLY GRAIL is hidden in plain sight. Relics have the CC Cross on them. Only Ryan Weaver has found the Grail. He says it is GOLD. Empty beer bottles are NOT relics.
Retrieve the Relic or the GRAIL. Report the code written on it to:
Kevin Blair (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Rick Potestio (email@example.com).
Put the words "Grail Hunt Relic" in the subject line.
One Relic will be hidden at each of four of the cyclocross races that precede the CC Series
Finders of the first 4 Relics will be awarded a 2013 Cross Crusade Season Pass. Finders of the remaining 8 Relics will be awarded a 2014 Cross crusade Season Pass. Finder of the HOLY GRAIL will be awarded a GRAND PRIZE: a round trip air ticket to the 2014 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS OF CYCLOCROSS in hoogerheide, Netherlands.
IF THE HOLY GRAIL IS NOT FOUND, then a GRAND PRIZE LOTTERY will award the trip to one of the 12 Relic finders by drawing their name from a pint glass at the Awards Ceremony.
