  • Scavenger Hunt '09

    and We're back.. with lots of fun, surprises and a few more challenges that are like nothing we've done before (non-life threatening)

    We'll be setting up early to kick things off as soon as the doors open this year, and I HIGHLY suggest that anyone that wants to have a team put together get signed in early!

    We've gone a few different routes in the past with the Scav-hunt. From technical to just plain stupid and I feel it's time to make a return to where it started. With that in mind, the new theme and drive will bring a completely different style of event. Everything is planned to allow anyone to play. All you need is a team and the ability to out-think the judges.... for the most part.. No real driving required... can't buy your way to the win... hell, we're not even requiring ALL of your self-respect as an entrance fee this time around.

    There will be plenty of prizes again (quite a bit more than we have had in the past) and I will be talking to the powers that be to ensure that the winners get a little something special to replace the feeling of loss where your dignity use to be.

    See you at the table,
    Siv

    Though fishing at the Bellagio was a great item :)

    What would be great is a projector playing a loop of all the submissions that were video'd. I'm positive people would stop to watch, sorta like the fun videos on wall of sheep. Should be pretty easy to set up too.

        Welcome back Siv and everyone else. :-)

        Forum for Scavenger hunt activated. Thread relocated to Scavenger Hunt forum for DC17. Redirection link exists in the old location of this thread, and will remain there for 1 month, to point people to this thread's new location and home.

        Pinguino, Tacitus and you (Siviak) added back as Forum Contest/Event Leaders/Organizers for this Scavenger Hunt forum. (Same as last year. You can open/close, stick/unstick, split, and apply similar changes to threads.)

        Got URL? Do you have a submission form for suggestions? Let me know and I can update the forum description.

        Good luck with your contest, and good luck to participants.

          Make sure you put "Buy an Inkarnit CD and/or shirt" from GM1 on the list. ;-)
          You're either on my side or else you're in the way.

            Maybe we should have a secret item at the Toxic BBQ.

              excellent ideas everyone.

              As of right now I am unsure if we have a submissions page, so, I would ask anyone with ideas for the scavenger hunt list to email directly to ScavHunt@Siviak.org... please, don't send naked pictures of your mom.. she sends plenty on her own.

                The description of this event in the forums still has the url from last year:
                http://www.hackerhouse.org/hunt

                It appears that the domain was sold. Do you have another? Is it ok if I purge the URL in the description for this event?

                Thanks!

                    Okay. I added your submission email for suggestions on things to add to the list this year:

                      Hello All!

                      Had great fun in the scavenger hunt. Unfortunately, my name "sally" was included in the winners list with the hackbus team on the scavenger hunt

                      I'd also like to get a hold of Siviak to get some goodies

                      thanks Siviak
                      it was awesome!

                        So what team were you on instead?

                            So your original post was supposed to be "unfortunately my name was NOT included on the hack bus teram", got it. Ok, I have relayed this info to Siviak. He does remember something about this, a woman who helped out the first day of their hunt. Can you PM me your info for him? Or you can send it to Scavlist@gmail.com along with any comments or ideas for next year! Thanks!

                              You are so right, I meant to say NOT. My bad. I'll send you the info.
