[News] 2008 Valentines Scavenger Hunt

    A small crowd gathered around the new gazebo at the yew waterfalls this morning, all waiting for some sign that the hunt was going to begin.
    The numbers were few, many Oceanians still sleeping off a big night, but there were still enough for some competition.
    In the midst of chatter, a new voice was heard,
    "Hello everyone!"
    It was Adida one of the live event members.

    After a quick meet and greet she filled us in on what the scavenger hunt was all about...

    After that was all said and done, she placed a pink chest on the steps full of, you guessed it!
    Pink pouches!
    Inside were 2 books. One which you wrote your name into and the other giving you a list of the items you needed to collect.

    As soon as people grabbed their bags they took off to get the items and here is the result.

    The first 5 people in with the goods were, MR Blue, Chief Y, Tarkus Darkly, Cymoril and AutOMAtiC upDAtE, who each received a rose in a vase inscribed with ‘2008 Valentines Hunt Champion’

    Thanks for the great report, Kat! The event was fun, though also very short!

    I'm just so thrilled they did a live event! I thought the days of those were gone for good, since the EM program was canned.

    I also have to say it was VERY well organised. Pretty much fool-proof, which I liked. The fact that the same person couldn't have entered twice, items couldn't be stolen, they first five to drop the correct entries were in, you couldn't remove or edit stuff. Just well planned on the whole, and Adida made good use of the resources she had to make it as fair as she could.

    I'm looking forward to any future live events! [​IMG]
