In 1916, Prohibition became law in Alberta. The taps were turned off and bottles poured out on a Friday night and the era of the Alberta RUMRUNNERS began. Thought to have originated in the United States, RUMRUNNERS were known for smuggling rum from the Carribean to the speakeasies in Florida and the southern States during Prohibition. Carribean Rum was a low profit spirit and inevitably the RUMRUNNERS began to include English Gin, Canadian Whiskey and French Champagne on their quest to imbibe the thirsty.
On a Friday night 101 years later, we're turning the taps on, opening the bottles up and challenging you to find your inner RUMRUNNER! Scavenge downtown Red Deer with your team or on your own in a quest to beat the rest in becoming a RUMRUNNER. Great prizes and even greater fun!
Registration includes: event warm up, full list of missions, sociables, entry into a prize draw, official after party admission and all kinds of compromising fun.
The top 3 teams, as determined by the judges, will be rewarded. Completing the hunt gets you free entry into the official RUMRUNNER after party where you'll get to brag endlessly about your heroic feats while tossing in to win more great prizes.
