photo scavenger hunt

This scavenger hunt was a photo scavenger hunt - you had to get photos of each goal. Of course, for this, we needed a digital camera which I borrowed from my friend Matt. So, I have them for you now!

We had four hours to get as many points as possible.

1. Where did Barry Sanders play football? (Hint: you have two choices) - Take a picture of one of them. (10 points)
(Barry Sanders grew up in Wichita.)

a) the field he played in as a kid


b) he attended North High


2. There are "Plane Crazy" sculptures throughought Wichita (approximately 30). You get 5 points for every one you can photograph standing next to or sitting on (without breaking).
We only got one - 5 pts each wasn't enough to bother with.


3. BTK is back in the news.
(BTK was a serial killer in Wichita in the 70's. He was never caught. He recently made news by, after 20 years of silence, sending a letter (which the Wichita PD verified was actually from him) to a local TV station a few months ago. Nothing has happened since then.)
Remember all the press about the houses involved where the crimes occurred? You get 5 points for every BTK hours you find (clear address needed).

a) 1311 S. Hydraulic




b) 2404 W. 13th


c) 803 N. Edgemoor



d) 843 S. Pershing


e) something on East 13th had been torn down.

BONUS POINTS!!! - 100 Bonus Points if you get someone you don't know to hold a sign that says "Hi - I'm BTK". 100,000 Bonus Points if it actually is BTK!

We freaked this kid out. He almost bolted when I asked him to hold a knife to my throat while we took the picture.


4. Get a fireman to let you "dress-up" in his gear (must include hat, boots, and coat) - 20 points



5. Take a picture of someone that looks like George Bush (monkeys don't count) - 10 points
We didn't get this one.
Take a picture of someone who looks like John Kerry (horses don't count) - 10 points
We didn't get this one either, even though people with Bush or Kerry masks on would have counted.

BONUS POINTS - 50 Bonus Points if you get either of them to hold a "Hi - I'm Bush/Kerry" sign. 10,000 Bonus points if it's actually them.

6. WITHOUT BEING ARRESTED - get a picture of one of your team members handcuffed in the back of a police car - 30 points
I KNEW no one else would get this one!





YIKES - That cop is my ex girlfriend!

7. There have been numerous "circle/roundabout" intersections installed in our city over the past few years. 10 points for EACH one you can photograph with your car in it.
Everyone agreed there were three.

a) Douglas, near McLean


b) South Riverside Park


c) East Riverside Park


8. Take a Picture of someone that looks like Osama Bin Laden - 20 Points
we didn't get this one.

BONUS POINTS - 1,000 Points if you get them to hold a sign saying "Hi - I'm Osama (death to America)". 1,000,000 points if it actually is Osama!

9. Take a picture of a dinosaur skeleton - 25 points
we didn't get this one.

10. How much are Tomatoes per lb at the Farm and Art Market? - Get a picture - 10 points.
We didn't get this one.

11. EXTRA SPECIAL OPPORTUNITY - Deduct 2 points from ANY competitor's score for EVERY PAPER PLATE you bring back (we'll explain later - your plates will not be returned). NO LIMIT on total point deduction.
We didn't bother.

12. Take a picture of a team member "groping" a lawn gnome at a store - 20 points. In someone's yard - 50 points.
We LOOKED and LOOKED and LOOKED for a yard with a gnome and could not find one!

13. EXTRA SPECIAL OPPORTUNITY - Deduct 5 points from ANY competitor's score for EVERY AA battery you bring back. Limit 5 per car. Your batteries will not be returned.
We did this.

14. EXTRA SPECIAL OPPORTUNITY - Bring me a "zoom zoom" sticker - Deduct 10 points from ANY competitor's score. Limit 1 sticker per car.
Dammit! I just gave them away at the monthly meeting the day before! And the dealership was closed.

15. Find a corn maze - get a picture. 25 points.



16. Find a pumpkin - bring it to me. Deduct 20 points off ANY opponent's score.
We did this.

17. We're still in search of the elusive "mullet" - get a picture - 20 points. If the Camaro is included in the picture - 50 points.
We didn't get this one.

18. Get a picture of a team member sitting in the car under a semi's tractor trailer - 20 points.


19. Take a picture of a team member running around on the field at a kid's soccer game - 20 points.

We ran away with the victory with a final score of 175, where the other people had like 50 and 25 and stuff. :-)
