Survive Silver Spring Summer 2012
« on: March 26, 2012, 12:52:50 PM »
Survive Takoma Silver Spring is a race/chase through the streests of Takoma Park and Silver Spring that begins at dusk. Participants will hit 6 checkpoints before finishing.

We'll hand out maps and ribbons from 7:30 till 8:15ish, and we'll release the players at dusk (around 8:30). Players that get to checkpoints early won't get their maps signed.

Your goal is to reach the final checkpoint first with a complete manifest and without being caught by Chasers. You may walk, run, crawl, jump or hop.


* If you arrive at a checkpoint after the checkpoint has closed, you may ask a stranger to sign your manifest.
* Your ribbon must be worn visibly on the upper arm at all times. Hiding your ribbon is considered cheating, and is punishable by death.
At each checkpoint you must find an Agent to sign your manifest. These Agents will instruct you on how to identify the Agent at the next checkpoint, and gift you with drink and possible food.
If you treat them nicely they might treat you even more nicely....

If you are caught (tagged), remove your player ribbon and give it to the Chaser who got you. Put on your chaser ribbon. Your goal now is to catch other players.

The chaser with the most player ribbons will get the CHASER award, while players or team that finished 1st, 2nd, and 3rd will also get medals.

Invite anyone and everyone you think would have fun playing.

If you want to be a photographer or volunteer to run a checkpoint, or help with set up or have me at

This year there will be monetary prizes and a required entrance fee donation  (TBA) but this way there will be enough money to cover supplies and some prize money (any extra will be donated to a charitable cause).

ATTENTION: there is a way to turn back into a player...but we aren't telling you what it is...
