Winelands: ‘Amazing Race II’ at the V&A Waterfront
Dec 10 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm
Winelands: 'Amazing Race II' at the V&A Waterfront

In February this year, four intrepid Winelands’ teams set off on an ‘Amazing Race’ around the V&A Waterfront, attacking HintHunt’s ‘Wheely, Wheely, Good’ challenge.

On Saturday 10 December, at 13h00, we’re going to attempt their ‘Street Arts’ challenge, navigating a scenic route around iconic landmarks whilst completing tasks and challenges.

Get your team together (3-4 people) and go head-to-head with other members – you’ll need to make strategic decisions to stay ahead of your opponents!

The distance traversed will be 2.5km, and the game should take approximately one-and-a-half hours. You will need one charged smartphone and approx 50mb data per team.

Mensa Winelands is partially subsidising this excursion – members pay R100pp. Guests are welcome, and pay R150pp.

Give your team a name, and book with the Winelands Secretary. If you don’t have a team, we’ll allocate you to one!
