Event Details

The evil plans by the “Flame Thrower” and his monster gang to destroy Hong Kong’s country parks were defeated at Tai Tong last year by a collective effort from our powerful Eco-Rangers!  Yet, the “Plastic Trasher” is determined to take over the world this year with its ever spreading plastic wastes scattering across our oceans and natural landscapes.

The “Plastic Trasher” takes many forms and it has been invading our daily lives in supermarkets, fast food chains, beverage shops as well as household flats across HK.  Plastic attacks are swift yet damaging, its plastic “bullets” (bottles) are 100% deadly for nature and threatening the lives of all creatures.  It could also evolve into microbeads, which are able to enter human bodies and inflict physiological damages.

The effects of the plastic attacks have grown far beyond our trash bins and the landfills and have been spreading into the oceans and country parks.  We need to assemble Eco-Rangers once again to hunt down all the monsters, stop their damaging evil plans as well as protecting our natural landscapes for the sake of all living creatures!

How to Play

“Plastic Trasher” is now hanging around and waiting for a chance to invade the country parks! If we don’t stop it immediately, all creatures in the world will live with plastic rubbish forever and ever! Eco-rangers (participants) must use the compass and map provided by the headquarters to track it down and look for ways to defeat it within a 2-hour limit, in order to save the environment.

Scoring Method:

  Hunter
“Plastic Trasher” and its gang are hiding in Hok Tau right now! Hunters must collect seals (special check points) scattered in the designated area and make use of them to hunt down the monsters. Claim the throne by defeating the most monsters!
 
  Other categories
Points will be awarded according to the number of “Plastic Trasher” check points visited as an orienteering competition.
 

The team which earns the highest score within the given time limit wins. Teams that exceed the given time limit will have their score deducted accordingly. Should there be a tie with more than one team having the same score, the team with the shorter time wins.
