Our First Scavenger Hunt was AWESOME!
I don’t even know where to begin. I am still reveling with happiness over how it turned out.
Let me start by saying that while there was a bit of confusion in the communication of the event. I apologize. We were trying to collaborate with Spectra Art Gallery to take advantage of all of the activities going on in Downtown Kennewick that day. I think I may have overloaded the event. Haha! All I can do is laugh, learn from it, and hope everyone had fun.
Let me start by saying that I have been wanting to have a scavenger hunt since I saw the newest version of Disney’s Freaky Friday. (I can admit that I love musicals and the Disney channel.) It just took a bit to figure out how to do it. But now…. I can’t wait to do more of them. It was so fun coming up with the clues and working with the businesses. (Thank you Jared and Garry.) And yes, we did do it over beers. Once the hunt began, I learned how to track, approve the finds and message all of the participants. It sure kept me busy but I have some great pictures.
The winners won a beautifully gaudy trophy that we built. Thanks to Jared and Amber Bamber and their artistic abilities, not only does it have color, glitter and a lighter, but the addition of a shot glass is a touch of class. This trophy will be passed down for many hunts to come.
While I will not tell you who the winners were, they did give permission to attach their photo. They nailed all of the clues, well, except one. But no one got that one correct. Admittedly it was a very hard clue. Who would think that their actually was a brick that said Goddess on it by a fish spewing water?
This would not have been possible without a lot of help. So here go the shout outs.
-Spectra Art Gallery for working with us.
-Vanna Oh! for the the entertainment. Go grease lighting!
-Christa for helping build and move a stage. I can’t even list everything else you did.
-Chef Jessie for running the grill and keeping everyone fed.
-Jared and Garry for helping bring this crazy idea to life.
-The businesses that stayed open a few extra minutes so we could invade their stores.
-And last but not least, all of the folks who braved this crazy event.
So that’s it for now! I will be writing an article in next month’s Tumbleweird but in the meantime events have been put on hold for a bit. We will start them back up in September so that we can all get out this summer. If you have an idea for an event, no matter how crazy, just email me. Let’s see what we can do.
