Scavenger hunt for Festivals!

    Some friends of mine were talking about doing this a while back, and I thought it would be a fun idea. In no way am I making fun of hippies, dreads, or music lovers. I love them all. I'm going to be at Wakarusa in June, but I also hope to have this ready for people at roo.

    Heres how it works. I'll provide a list that I will post and have printed copies of at waka. You then take the list around the fest for however long it is surching for everything on the list. It would be best to have a Digital, or polaroid camera to document each item you find. Most will not be things you can bring back with you. Film would have to be procesed if you use disposable cameras.

    Examples of things you will be looking for

    1. A hippie chick hula hooping and blowing bubbles at the same time.

    2. Someone passed out in front of a stage while a band is playing.

    3. A Juggler in action.

    4. A naked person or persons in a public area. extra points for more then one

    5. Unauthorized vendor selling posters of both Jimi Hendrix and Jerry Garcia.

    6. Two dreadlocked festers laying on the grass making out.

    7. A tie die(or is it tye dye) flag at a camp site.

    Each item will have a points value and high score(or 1st complete list) will win a prize. No staging of photos or using of friends please. Honesty will play a big part in this game. If you see a guy juggling take a picture, or ask him to juggle for you. Don't walk around asking people if they know how to juggle. Don't ask people to get naked, even if it sounds like more fun then the hunt.

    I need help!!!! I would love to pull this off, but I need things for people to find that would not cost them money. Post suggestions on things or events to find. If you have any rules you think would fit, please post them. Last but not least, how about some ideas for prizes.

    I would love to give away one big prize to the winner, and smaller prizes to anyone who finishes the list. Maybe even a small prize for anyone who works on it the whole weekend and turns it in Sunday. I would hate for anyone not to get something out of this. What could I give you that would make you work on the list and not give up? I don't think anyone will finish it early in the fest, so don't limit your prize suggestions to things to use there.I WILL ONLY BE GIVING PRIZES AWAY AT WAKARUSA, not at roo if the list is used there.

    Anyone want to sponsor this game by giving prizes? If you own a business or make crafts this might be a small way to get your name out there. Any web designers interested in posting all the pictures after the fest, drop me a line.

    I'll post my cell number for people to find me at the Wakarusa for list and turning in list for prizes. thats the e-mail and my name is Bob. Talk to me people.

    PS this might be posted in more then one spot, but I will check them all. No need to post in more then one.

    Great idea Bob! If I was going to Wakarusa I would be way down for this, but as I'm not I can't really. But I really like the idea of having a shavanger hunt at feties, that could be a lot of fun. I think you should add a bunch more things though, make the list like 50 things. I dont know, great idea though!!

    The list might be 100 things when I'm done. I hope to get a lot of people on the forums posting things to add.

    This post is here to let people know about it and to make the list. I can't come up with everything myself. Help me out with things you see at every fest, or odd things you saw once at a fest.

    Well, I thought more people would help me add things to the list, but it looks like this is going to die.

    Last chance effort here, anyone want to give me some ideas?

    I can't take credit for the idea, but I did make the list. 2 Friends of mine who are now in a band together called Mars Retreval Unit(MRU) were talking about it at the Langerado Fest in Hollywood when we were there. I thought they were on to somthing, so I made a list. Its going to be so much fun looking at the pictures people get.

    Please take the list and run with it. Make changes, add things, whatever. I'll post on here how it goes at the fest this weekend. Tell you the good and bad.

    Thank you to everyone who helped with ideas and support.
