It is free to play – all you need is a team and a willingness to explore your city!
The first step is to pick up a scorecard which you can download by clicking here or pick one up at City Hall. This is how keep track of the clues you’ve found and the points you’ve earned.
Next step is to gather your team. Teams can be up to five people and teams are encouraged to safely connect with your neighbors.
Searching for Clues:
Clues will be distributed through the City’s facebook page, twitter account and posted at City Hall and Ferndale Library. You can also find them here if you scroll down. The first clue will be released Friday. July 2nd, and then after that it is every Tuesday and Friday until July 20th (6 clues in total).
The clues will lead you to large banners hidden around town. Most of them are in Ferndale Parks, but not all of them. The envelopes are on banners that look like this:
Inside the white box is a word scramble. Copy this into your scorecard to solve the riddle of why the cows escaped!
Exploring Your City:
There is so much more you can do to participate and win points for your team. On your scorecard, under “Explore Your City,” there are a number of other activities you can do. They can be accomplished individually or as a team, whichever you prefer. All the activities require you to record something on the scorecard – and more details on each activity are on the backside of your scorecard.

All scorecards are due by 4 pm on Tuesday, July 27th. Winners to be announced Friday, July 30th.

The Great Ferndale Frontier Folly is designed to get people outside moving around and enjoying our city, but as you can imagine, all these things involve a little risk. Please be safe and use good judgement when exploring and interacting with others. Participants play at their own risk.
Thank you again to all of our community partners for participating and to the Parks, Recreation and Trails Advisory Board for helping organize all this.
