A Puzzling Reason to Live in Old MV

A scavenger hunt for the ages. All ages. The second Get a Clue in Old Mountain View was held on Saturday, April 27th 2024 from 1pm-3pm. 

Sleuthers started their mysterious journey at Mercy-Bush park. Two challenges of varying difficulty were laid forth — Scooby-Doo and Sherlock. Solving 12 puzzles from their phones, neighbors took pictures around the hood of their “answers” and checked out to win a prize. 

Nearly 75 adults and 60+ kid sleuthers attended. The puzzles were no match for some, while others were left puzzled.

Did someone say prizes?

Prizes ranged from tasty spy cookies, access to the mystery box, gift cards, Old MTV gear, or a deep dive into the what seems to be an endless treasure chest. A bonus prize was a free drawing for a pre-owned video game system.

Spy cookies donated by The Compassionate Crumb, local plant based bakery.
Books Inc gift cards donated by Hula Networks, local business owner, who focus on design, install and support the network infrastructure.

No Spoilers: The prizes may have vanished, but the game is still afoot. Puzzles available online until May 10. Visit omvna.org to play.


Non-edible prizes are up-cycled new or like new items donated by neighbors or businesses. If you have a puzzle/game themed prize for next years theme, contact social@omvna.org.
