Robert Groenewald won the first scavenger hunt which took place at Dunes Mall. He emerged victorious after collecting 76 points.

Points were scored according to which position the contestants finished in seven different games. Amongst others the games included trivia questions and competitors also had to estimate the price of items in shops.

Groenewald walked away with a voucher from CNA worth N$1 500 and said he was thrilled to have won.

“I chose to take part because it is a fun event. I wanted to have a good time and win some money. They have a good selection of books at CNA for my children.”

Mavera Beukes was second with 67 points ahead of third-placed Damian Neumbo, who gathered 61 points. Both won vouchers worth N$250 from CNA. Elenore Beukes was the fourth-placed contestant with 57 points.

The top four contestants also received a goodie bag from Spec Savers.

Ivana Beukes finished fifth with 45 points. All five contestants also won a bag from Dunes Mall.

The event was organised by Connect People to People in conjunction with the mall. The event itself consisted of seven games with five contestants participating.

According to Dave Hammond of Connect People to People they formed a partnership with the Dunes Mall management.

“Our job is to create events that draw people to the mall. We did the colour run at the end of December last year. This time the idea was the back to school theme targeting parents and children doing shopping.”

CNA was the title sponsor.

The five contestants were selected after a scavenger hunt was run in the mall for 15 days. Contestants had to go into each shop to collect a stamp from the shop. Shop owners asked them to do something in order to get the stamp.

Contestant’s names were thrown into a big draw and the five finalists were drawn on Friday evening and contacted to take part in the final rally on Saturday,” he said.

According to Hammond, the event was a success given that it was hosted for the first time.

“It was good to see the contestant’s families and supporters running around and smiling. Every person got a prize and they really enjoyed themselves. They learned a lot about what Dunes Mall has to offer and specifically what shops like Spec Savers and CNA are all about.”

Hammond said there is a possibility of making the scavenger hunt an annual event, depending on how discussions go between Connect People to People and Dunes Mall’s management.

He thanked all the sponsors that made the event possible as well as the contestants that took part.
