    Join AWRA Florida for a fun, informative and interactive evening of Community, Conversation and Connections while searching for clues at Disney Springs - recently transformed and expanded from its previous days as Downtown Disney. Our home based will be the floating dock of The Boathouse - complete with retro dream boats, from Vintage American Amphicars to romantic Italian Water Taxies.

    This will be a great opportunity to re-connect with old friends, meet new ones and enjoy central Florida's beautiful November weather.

    The scavenger hunt is a walking event, but you can also choose to stay at The Boathouse and network, eat, drink and relax. Form your own scavenger hunt team or we can help form one for you. Prizes will be awarded to the winning team(s).

    The event is sponsored by AWRA Florida and is not included in the annual conference registration fee. The event fee includes transportation to and from Disney Springs from the conference hotel, heavy appetizers (plenty for dinner) and 1 free drink. Cost is $35 (by Oct. 24); $40 (after Oct. 24).

    All proceeds from this event will support AWRA Florida's Education Program, which annually awards scholarships and grants to students and teachers.
