Amsterdam Scavenger Hunt – 3 July

Hello everyone! As you all know, the association battles have all been online till now. However, with the arrival of the new academic year, it’s time to spice things up. So, STORM and NSA welcome you all to the Amsterdam Scavenger Hunt! You will be given a Scavenger kit which will contain the locations you need to visit. Once at the objective, you’ll meet up with one of our members and answer a question. Correct answers result in you getting one step closer to the victory. This is a team activity consisting of 4 members. Consequently, a team with more members will have a higher chance to find all the clues within the prescribed time. So, find as many members from your association as you can and sign up now!
