PERTH, WESTERN AUSTRALIA, 2nd September 2013 – Over a thousand teams will take to the city streets next month for the annual Rotary Ramble.
My Booking Manager, a leading online event registration management system, announced today it has been selected by Rotary Ramble Pty Ltd to manage the online entries for the annual event.
Rotary Ramble is Perth’s very own treasure hunt crossed with the ‘Amazing Race’. Teams will be vying for the thousands of dollars’ worth of prizes up for grabs. In search of clues from over 60 checkpoints, teams of two to six people tackle challenges, riddles and puzzles at some of Perth’s quirkiest hidden locations as well as its best known landmarks.
The My Booking Manager system caters for group and family bookings, as well as the ability for individuals to create their own teams. The system also allows people to make online donations against their favourite team as a way to earn extra points.
While the event is all about getting out and having fun with friends and family while raising money for charity, technology plays an important role in the event. Now in its third year, this year’s event will see the introduction of a mobile phone app that teams will use to “play the game”.
“This year marks an exciting year for the event where we are partnering with specialist service providers to bring the event to a new leading edge level”, according to Mark Horwood, Event Director of Rotary Ramble. “The world has moved on from our previous text messaging technology that was used in our games system of past events” said Mr Horwood. “We’ve taken our experience over the last two years and designed a unique system that now takes advantage of smart phone technology. Our partner SimplyApps has been commissioned to implement and manage the mobile phone app, while our online booking partner My Booking Manager is managing all the online entries and donations.”
The Rotary Ramble 2013 will be held Sunday October 20th 2013. The event raises funds for Telethon, Australian Rotary Health, The Amanda Young Foundation and other charities. Discussions with other fund raising organisations to replicate the success of the event in other cities are also in hand.
