PIRATE’S CODE – RULES FOR 2019 RACE FOR TREASURE

1. All treasure must be collected from a Pirate Ship (sailboat).  Crew may leave their Pirate Ship to collect treasure, however, no treasure may be collected until after the official start of the Race for Treasure andthe Pirate Ship has launched from KSC.

2. A lady pirate or youth pirate must captain the Pirate Ship for at least one leg of the Race for Treasure (a minimum of 5 minutes at the helm of the Pirate Ship).  If the Pirate Ship does not have a female pirate or a youth pirate aboard, the Pirate Ship must do 3 complete turns during the Race for Treasure, but no later than 3:00 p.m.

3. Time Limit – The Race for Treasure will last no longer than 2.5 hours.

4. Each Pirate Ship is to collect as much treasure as possible and return to KSC prior to the expiration of the time limit.  Treasure should be logged upon return to KSC Hideout no later than 4:30 p.m.

5. Each Pirate Ship may only take 1 treasure block from each hidden treasure location.  There are a limited number of treasure blocks in each treasure location, so there is no guarantee that all Pirate Ships will find a treasure block even if they correctly identify where X marks the spot.

6. Thievery is permissible, so long as no one loses an eye or a leg!

7. All pirates who fail to unearth any treasure must walk the plank!
