Welcome to the GoCaz Adventure Challenge!  Below are some rules and tips to help you on your journey.

When will the GoCaz Adventure Challenge begin? The Challenge will be live beginning on July 1 and will be available through September 6, 2021.

What is the GoCaz Adventure Challenge?  An active adventure that will guide you through the hills and valleys of Cazenovia!  You will be challenged by clues and riddles to solve, and you may discover some unexpected local history hiding in plain sight!  You will solve clues leading you to 11 sites almost entirely accessible via 20 plus miles of trails and sidewalks (in the Village of Cazenovia).  There is also a bonus site at the end which requires transportation by car or bike.

How much does it cost?  The GoCaz Adventure Challenge is free, thanks to the Cazenovia Area Community Development Association (CACDA) and our generous sponsors!

What do I need?  The challenge requires a mobile phone with a data plan.  You will also need mobile phone access to your email to be provided with a link that allows you to begin, pause and continue the challenge whenever you like.  For questions regarding the GoCaz Adventure Challenge, please contact info@gocaz.com.

How does it work?  You will be provided with clues that you will solve to figure out which site to visit next.  At each site, you will work to solve a riddle to get the clue to the next site.  For added adventure, you can hike or bike the trails to get from site to site and we will provide you with suggestions along the way.  You can also check out GoCaz.com to view the local trail system.

How long does it take?  The time it takes to complete the challenge will depend on how long you linger at each site.  We encourage you to visit and explore!  The challenge could be completed in one (very long) day if you are fast.  But there is no rush!  You can begin whenever you like starting on July 1 and you have until September 6 to complete the challenge.  You can pause and come back to continue your journey as many times as you like. 

How do I win?  Each individual who completes the GoCaz Adventure Challenge will be entered into a drawing for a $1,000 cash prize.  If you enter as a team, each individual on the team will be entered into the drawing.  For each bonus you complete you will receive an additional entry into the drawing (these include bonus photo ops and one bonus location).  The winner will be selected after the challenge is complete on September 6, 2021.

How do I begin?  Starting July 1st, 2021, you can register at GoCaz.com to begin your adventure!

Helpful Hints:

If you get stuck on a clue or riddle, there are no rules against asking for help! Stop in at a local business or the library. They may or may not be able to help but you might learn some interesting local facts! Searching the internet is also allowed.

Please note that if you think you have an answer to a clue or riddle, and you enter it and nothing happens, that means your answer is incorrect.  When you enter a correct answer, you automatically can view the next clue, or can view the "Next" button to move on.

Also, if you want to pause and continue later, you won't be able to leave a blank field.  Instead, either enter any wrong answer, solve the current clue or riddle or go back to the prior page.  When you choose "Pause & continue later," you will get an email with a link to continue your adventure challenge.

Good luck!
