|TTIA's Travel & Tourism College I Spy Denton|
Tuesday, June 19th. I Spy Denton. Game on!
Join us the evening of Tuesday, June 19th for a unique digital "game" that will allow you to experience downtown Denton in an entirely new way. I Spy Denton, produced by Aria and TTIA, is a team-oriented activity that will force you to complete tasks and challenges and interact with the environment around you. Our pre-selected teams will create a photo-story as they walk around downtown Denton, visiting different restaurants, pubs and venues.
The basic idea goes something like this –
You will be assigned to one of several teams that is tasked with moving around Denton, visiting different locations, all the while taking photos of words you see around town – store posters, traffic signs, menus, bar advertisements, whatever you see – and at the end of the evening coming together with your teammates to create a sentence using photos of the words you took. Each photo should only contain 1-2 words, so you’ll have to work together to come up with a complete thought. Think of it as a collective collage – like cutting out individual letters from a magazine to form a word.
The team with the most creative sentence wins. It’s that simple.
Here’s a breakdown of the event schedule:
6:00pm – Dine-Around begins. Choose your favorite restaurant(s) around the Square for dinner. Be aware as you’re on your way to and from the restaurant you can begin snapping photos for I Spy Denton.
7:00pm – Pub Crawl begins. All participants for I Spy Denton should meet in front of the Courthouse on the Square to join their team and receive their first instructions. Each team captain will be handed their team’s first clue, which will send teams to particular locations around the Square. All teams will be given unique clues that will take them to different locations throughout downtown.
7:00-9:30pm – Pub Crawl continues. Each team will complete tasks or challenges at particular venues, and once completed, will receive instructions on which venue to go to next and information on their next challenge. Remember to take photos of printed words as you travel from venue to venue!
9:30pm – All teams should gather back at the Courthouse on the Square lawn for judges’ assessment and declaration of the Grand Prize winner(s)!
Using Instagram and Twitter, I Spy Denton will show participants ways social media can be used to create new experiences for destinations. Above all, it will be a spectacularly fun, competitive activity for all TTIA Travel and Tourism College attendees. May the odds be ever in your favor.
