It’s described as a ‘lively, interactive experience;” one in which teams of two or four people compete in “diabolical challenges” throughout the community. Last year 100 people met at the Fort Wayne Bike Depot and from there traveled to an ice arena to try the sport of curling, moved on to archery, segways, pitching, shot some hoops with the Fort Wayne Mad Ants mascot, solved a puzzle in a skyscraper then headed back to the river to kayak. An Adventure Quest bash is held at the end of the day for all teams and volunteers.
When asked why should people consider competing, event organizer Stephen Hilker replied, “Why not break out of the routine events?” He continues, “I have managed events for over 10 years and have never seen an event where more people had fun!”
The 2014 Adventure Quest will be held on Friday, June 27. Space for teams is limited. It costs $125 for a team of two, and $250 for a team of four people. It’s for a good cause. Proceeds help bring more programming for Allen County children through Junior Achievement of Northern Indiana.
