Lapeer Chamber to host inaugural Photo Road Rally

LAPEER — Mark your calendar now for Saturday, Sept. 30 for a new event sponsored by the Lapeer Area Chamber of Commerce — a Photo Road Rally!

For more than 30 years, various groups and organizations hosted a Treasure Hunt in Lapeer. The Chamber has decided to take this event, change it up by making it a Photo Road Rally.

Unlike other treasure hunts, teams will compete to win cash prizes, racing against the clock to get as many photos as possible in the allotted time. Each photo will have something specific that is required to be in it along with at least three of the team members. Two-man teams will require both team members be in the photo. A selfie-stick may be helpful.

Teams will be required to reach a specific point total based on their photo collection. Some photos will have a higher point value than others. Teams will be given a list of photo clues to choose from.

Cash prizes for first, second and third place will be awarded (amount for each place based on total number of entrants). The evening also includes a 50/50 drawing, silent auction and dinner. Cash bar will be available.

The Road Rally is a community event, open to the public. Gather your family/friends and co-workers and get registered for a night of competitive fun. Pre-Registration is $25 per person (team of 2-4) through Sept. 21. Teams and individuals can register up to and the day of the event, but after Sept. 21, there is no refund and the cost increases to $30 per person. Participants who don’t have a team of two-four can register the day of the event we will partner them with others to make up teams.

“We’re really looking forward to this event. It’s going to be great fun. This is just one of three new community events we are planning,” said Neda Payne, executive director of the Lapeer Area Chamber of Commerce. “The next one will be a Disney Princess Party in November and in the spring of next year we are working on our own Friday Food Truck Festival right here in Lapeer.”

Registration for the Sept. 30 event begins at 5 p.m., and the Rally runs 6-8 p.m. The Rally will begin and end at the Lapeer Area Elks Lodge, 200 E. Nepessing St. in Lapeer.

If interested in participating individually or as a team, registration forms and information can be found on the Chamber’s website www.lapeerareachamber.org, or call the Chamber office at 810-664-6641.
