REDDING – KIXE’s CYBERCHASE Saturdays continues at Turtle Bay on July 24 and 31. During these Saturdays from 10:30am-3:30pm we will offer face painting, cool games, scavenger hunts and prizes, including a limited number of Cyberchase DVDS! Families are encouraged to play and rate unique math games created by local kids. On Saturday, July 24, the Shasta Family YMCA and on July 31, the Redding Children’s Library will have a booth and provide free activities for children to add to our Cyberchase fun! To date, more than 200 guests have taken part in Cyberchase Saturdays and helped rate the games of KIXE’s first top presenters. Each person who rates a game receives a free raffle entry for a night at the Travelodge in Redding and a free family dinner at Angelo’s and other top prizes. Everyone can vote online for their favorite games to help determine the Grand Prize winner, who will receive a year family membership to Turtle Bay, a three-month family pass to the Shasta Family YMCA, a free night’s stay at Redding’s Travelodge, a family pass to Lake Shasta Caverns, dinner at Angelo’s Pizza Parlor, a family Need 2 Speed Package, a family day pass to Party ExtraordinAIR Pass, day passes to Waterworks Park, Oasis Fun Center, Prime Cinemas, Shasta Lanes and more! Voting takes place online through July 31 at www.kixe.org. Participants may vote for one game a day, per e-mail address.
