The annual Northeastern Husky Hunt, sponsored by the Resident Student Association, is now open for teams to register. Dubbed “Husky Hunt 2012: Knights of the Husky Hunt,” it will feature 50 teams, each with twelve members, running through the streets of Boston searching for clues and competing in challenges. It is generally regarded as one of the most intense events to be enjoyed here at Northeastern, and is on every huskie’s list of “10 Things To Do Before You Graduate.”
The Hunt will run for 24 hours starting on Nov. 2nd at 7 PM, so teams looking to sign up will need to make sure they have a high endurance and have friendships that can withstand such an event. Additionally, because over 100 teams apply and only 50 can be accepted, all of the teams will be sent a quiz they must complete in order to get in to the actual hunt, so mental acuity is a factor as well. However, after all of the toil and trouble, the winning teams in past years have been given Kindle Fires, Roundtrip JetBlue tickets, and other top notch prizes.
The event is entirely free, and teams can register here: http://www.rsa.neu.edu/wordpress/huskyhunt
