Due the likelihood of heavy, El Nino enhanced rains in February, the 2016 Chinese New Year Treasure Hunt is being postponed until September, during the Chinatown Autumn Moon Festival, when we expect the weather to be more conducive to clue-solving. More details will be posted here in the coming months.

Get your threads/conceptual art projects ready for the Best Dressed costume contest and your cameras ready for the Photo contest. You could WIN FABULOUS PRIZES (... well, at least honor, glory and bragging rights).
You must bring your tickets WITH YOU to the Hunt!
Helpful but optional items:
Everyone gets a detailed map of the playing area, and every team receives an alphabetic street index. You’re encouraged to bring your own maps, guidebooks or reference works to aid in solving clues. We will not be updating the iPhone app this year.
While familiarity with San Francisco geography is an advantage, the ability to collaboratively solve a puzzle and work as a team are more important.
