Scopes Scavenger Hunt: Can You Find It?

DAYTON, Tenn. – Can you find it?

Back for its second year, the Spring City Leo Club, youth branch of the Spring City Lions Club, will sponsor the Scopes Scavenger Hunt, challenging participants to figure out “what happened here” at a number of places related to the 1925 Scopes trial.

LEO Club members invite teams of four each to sign up for the hunt at the Rhea County Courthouse beginning Saturday, July 16, at 9:30 a.m. Prizes will be awarded to each team member for the top three teams.

Beginning at the courthouse, each team will be given clues to guide them to the “next” site of the hunt. Winning teams will be determined by the number of correct answers and other criteria given at registration.

“We have had a lot of fun getting ready for this year’s scavenger hunt,” incoming Spring City Leo Club President C.J. Sneed said.

“The teams that participated last year had a good time, and we all learned a lot about our community. This is an event that that youth and adults alike will enjoy.”
