    Catskills finally had their turn at the "The Valentine's Day Scavenger Hunt" ,on the 20th of Feb, and many people showed up to take part. The event took place at the new Yew Waterfalls Garden that is a beautiful and tranquil place to visit.

    Adida did not disappoint the waiting crowd as she appeared on the gazebo in a giant pink explosion that covered the area. Dressed all in pink, astride a pink mount too. She looked quite fetching and was a sight not to be missed.
    She quickly explained the rules, and stated that the scavenger hunt items she had listed in the book had not been used before on any other shard. Then she showed the prize that the first five people to complete the quest could win. A single flower in a vase marked "2008 Valentine Hunt Champion"
    She followed that by placing on the ground a pink chest, full of pink bags that everyone taking part in the events was suppose to take one of. In the pink bags there was two books. The first book you signed, so when you turned in your bag Adida would know who it belonged to. The second book had the list of items that the contestants were to gather and bring back to the gazebo to be placed in a second box. (the second box was not placed till 5 minutes after the first one was. To make sure everyone had a fair chance of winning.) The first 5 players to gather the wanted items and place their bags in the second box were declared the winners.
    As soon as everyone had grabbed their bag and looked at the list, there was a mad rush from the area, as people went forth to gather the items and try to beat everyone else back to win the contest. Adida made small conversation with the few of us who remained behind, while waited to see who would win this mad race, and in record time people started returning to place their filled bags in the second chest she had placed.

    Once Adida had the first 5 bags in the chest she excused herself to ensure that no new characters, or previous winners from other shards owned one of the winning bags. When she was done verifying that everything was fine she returned and announced the winners, and they were:

    Fahrenheit, A Dark Angel, Sionell, Jenna and Mordoc

    Congratulations to these winners for being faster then everyone else at the scavenger hunt.

    Adida then said her goodbyes and left us with a huge pink heart shaped explosion around her. Say what you will about her, but she does has have her own style.


    All in all it was a fast but fun event. Lets hope for more in the near future.
