Game of Bones - Minute to Win It!
Time & Location
About the Event
We are back for our first quarter in 2021 - new games and a new chance to be our quarterly scent work champion and win $50. All searches will be conducted outdoors with plenty of room for social distancing.
In February, you will have a MINUTE TO WIN IT! 5 searches with 1-2 hides in each area. Search areas may consist of exterior elements, containers, or vehicles (or a combo). Competitors have 1 minute in each area to find all of the hides before moving on to the next search area.
Can't find all the hides in 1 minute? No problem, you can keep any points earned and continue on to the next area to try again. As a bonus, we will have a self-serve practice area set up that you can enjoy while you are waiting for your turn.
Staggered start times: Choose to arrive at 10:00 a.m. or 11:00 a.m. and leave when you are done.
Quarterly Scent Work League: Every 3 months, the top scoring Level 1 dog and the top scoring Level 2 dog from all 3 events will receive a $50 cash prize. Each event has 100 points (300 points total for the quarter). Points are earned by correctly calling hides in each search area. 5 points will be deducted for each false alert by you and each elimination by your dog. The more events you participate in, the better your odds are of being crowned top dog! Scent Work Standings will be posted on the Game of Bones’ Facebook page so you can keep track of the results.
