Los Angeles Scavenger Hunt: 11/11/19


Join Us for our Community Scavenger Hunt!

Are you traveling to Los Angeles for the Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness 10th Annual Dear Jack Foundation benefit concert and wondering what you’re going to do before doors on 11/11? Join your AMITW and Dear Jack community on a lyric-inspired scavenger hunt in Venice Beach. We’ll provide the clues and you provide the proof.

Individuals and teams who locate all the clues will receive bragging rights as well as a special edition Eleven Los Angeles collectors pin – the first pin of a series we will create annually for those who complete the scavenger hunt.

Scavenger Hunt Date: Sunday, 11/11/19

Scavenger Hunt Location: Venice Beach (Los Angeles, CA)

Start Time: 10:00AM PST

End Time: 2:00PM PST

Game Name: Dear Jack 2019 Scavenger Hunt

Suggested Donation: The Dear Jack Foundation covers all fees associated with hosting the annual scavenger hunt. While we never plan to make this community activity “pay to play,” to help us cover the cost of participation, a $5 donation per scavenger hunt team member is greatly appreciated.



This year, we’ll be using the GOOSE CHASE App to track your hunt progress and give you the clues you need to find your destinations! Please download the App and create your account before you begin the scavenger hunt.


Open the app and choose to play as a guest, or register for a personal account with a Facebook account or email, and a username & password of your choice. (Don’t worry, we’ll never post to your Facebook account without your permission!). Once logged in, click the magnifying glass icon and search for Dear Jack 2019 Scavenger Hunt. Select your game from the list and click “Select Team & Join Game”. If your game organizer and/or a team member instructed you to join a particular team, do so. If you’re the first from your team to download GooseChase, create your team.

You will not be able to unlock challenges until 10:00am (PST) on November 11th, 2019. The challenges will close at 2:00pm (PST) the same day.

Scavenger Hunt Rules and Tips:

  • The scavenger hunt will take place during the day on 11/11. You can work in teams (max 4 members) and will be able to set up your team via the GooseChase app.

  • There are 8 locations within an approximately 1-mile area in Venice Beach that you will need to visit. All challenges will be available upon the start of the scavenger hunt. While in order on the app, you do not have to complete the clues in a specific order (but it’s more fun!). However, you MUST save the last clue, “K” as your final destination to get your prize.

  • Each of the 8 missions has a corresponding clue and challenge – knowing your Andrew McMahon lyrics will definitely help! This is NOT a competition. Every team that completes all of the challenges and arrives at the final destination by 2 pm on 11/11 will receive their prize (while supplies last, more prize details below).

  • Fun Along the Way: Some of the mission locations have offered deals to our participants. Check each clue to see if there is an extra offer!

    Final Clue / Destination: While you do not have to complete all clues in order, you must save the final “K” clue as your last stop. This is where you will receive your prize!

    Remember: Challenges must be submitted using the GooseChase app. We also want you to share on social media using the hashtag: #Hunt4DJF

    Last Stop: The last stop is at a location that has food and drinks. A DJF representative will be on site from 10:00am – 2:00pm, so stop in, say hello, grab a snack and get your prize (while supplies last)!

    Prize for Completion of the Challenge: Individuals or teams that complete the Los Angeles Scavenger Hunt Challenge and arrive at the final location between 10am and 2pm, will receive an Eleven Los Angeles collectors pin (while supplies last). You are required to meet the DJF representative at the final location in order to get your pin. The Los Angeles Scavenger Hunt Challenge must be completed no later than 2pm PST on 11/11/19.
