Fernie Rotary Summer Scramble

The Fernie Rotary Summer Scramble is here! This summer long event is a fantastic activity for the whole family to enjoy. Each week will feature 10 new clues: 5 focused on the trails, and 5 focused within City Limits. Purchase 5 guesses for $10. You can mix your guesses between the City Ramble clues, and the Trail Scramble clues. The clues, and locations, will be a mixture of easy- moderate- difficult each week. To submit your guess, you must correctly answer the riddle for the clue, then capture a photo of yourself, or household team, at the location. Your photo must clearly show the location.

Each week, your correct entries will be entered into a Grand Prize Draw. The Grand Prize for each category will be a $500 gift certificate to the Fernie business(es) of your choosing. The more people participate, the more prizes will be available! There will also be Snap Prizes randomly assigned to clues. The first person to correctly identify and submit an answer to the Snap Prize clue will be the winner.

Fill out the form below to register yourself, or a household team.
