Think ‘Amazing Race’ crossed with ‘Tic Toc’ and ‘Treasure hunts’ wrapped up in a show theme and you are coming close to the FUN of the 'Let the Shows Go On!' GooseChase.

This Goosechase brings everyone together for family friendly fun that will have you laughing, active, creative and connected and if you are just a little bit competitive then you are in for some extra FUN and PRIZES!

Hours of entertainment and fun to connect the whole family. It’s for all ages… Yes! Even the teenage zombies have fun and you can invite the grandparents (or the grandparents can invite you!)

Play as a team of any size. Be anywhere in the world and still come together as a team!

Easy to Play just buy your team ticket, download an app onto your device, find the game and you’re away and chasing! 

The theme of this game takes you on a journey to connect you with 11 NSW rural/regional communities and their agricultural shows from Oberon to Baradine, just north west of Coonabarabran and the Warrumbungle Dark Sky Park.

Agricultural Shows are a highlight event for many rural communities across Australia. Sadly volunteers who run these shows are facing many challenges and some are having to make the difficult decision to not run in 2021, whilst others are stepping up to these big challenges to enable them to happen.

The Dark Sky Innovations team feel passionate about enabling rural communities to THRIVE!

A team ticket is just $25 and for every team ticket sold we will donate $5. See 123TIX.com.au for tickets.

“Our audacious goal is to have 2200 teams to sign up so we can donate $11,000… that’s $1000 for each of the 11 shows in Group 12 Castlereagh to help there shows go on in 2022.”

We will link game missions with your business… See our Sponsors page for the options and details. We want to assist small and larger rural businesses through active collaboration within the game.

 

All you need to do is review the options to see which one best suits you, send us some quick details via a Sponsor survey and then let our team do the rest. 

 

We are also seeking sponsors who live outside the Group 12 region who, like us, feel passionate about supporting rural and regional communities to THRIVE!!!

Let the Shows Go On! Calling for Sponsor

There were a variety of brilliant entries and we especially loved this one... the Mission challenge was ‘Calling a Winner! 

"Take a video of your team member with the best announcer's voice calling the arrival of a new round of drinks" This was a corker of an entry by the 'Dodgems' team.

Playing the game is the best way to see the potential.
