Gem City Social Sports’ next Dayton Strong Bar Crawl and Scavenger Hunt is set for 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. this Saturday, Nov. 2.
Nathan Omlor, a founder of the company established in 2016 to bring young adults into the city for sports and social activities, said the crawl is meant to support Oregon District businesses still recovering from the Aug. 4 mass shootings.
“We are just trying to bring people back together and back downtown,” he said.
Omlor said some questioned how soon people would go back to the nightlife center where a gunman murdered nine and injured dozens before being killed by police.
“There is no reason you should not go down to the Oregon District,” Omlor said.
Registration is $25 per person on Gem City Social Sports’ website.
Part of the proceeds will be donated to the Dayton Oregon District Tragedy Fund established by the Dayton Foundation, Omlor said.
He said $900 was raised for the fund during the last bar crawl two months ago.
Participants will compete as part of three teams selected at registration.
Clues and trivia will be sent to participants’ phones as part of the three-hour event that includes stops at bars around the district for drink specials.
Those who registered before Oct. 25 will get a custom Dayton Strong T-shirt.
Registration closes Friday, Nov. 1.
A prize package will be awarded to players of the winning team based on points awarded.
