Scavenger Hunt at the Air & Space Museum!

*** It's a great day for a scavenger hunt!  See you there! ***

UPDATE #4: If you were unable to secure a spot for this hunt online, you have the option of "flying standby." There are usually 8 no-shows for this event, so you just might be able to get on board. Make sure to come early with exact cash.

UPDATE #3: I will be outside in front of the National Air & Space Museum at the Independence Avenue entrance. Look for the red flag!  Please account for traffic and Metro delays, and please arrive on time! An email with this UPDATE has been sent to the YES RSVPs.

UPDATE #2: The early-bird price has ended and the ticket price is now $25. Looking forward to seeing you there!

UPDATE #1: There are 9 early bird spots left and the price will increase from $20 to $25 when the early bird spots are gone or before Sat. Jan 11th (whichever comes first). To be fair to those who want to join in and are ready to make payment, I'll be removing those that haven't paid by Sun. Jan. 5th. So make payment to *truly* lock in your spot. I hope to see you there!

It's time for the next scavenger hunt!

We'll meet up at the National Air & Space Museum at 2pm. Please be ON TIME! From 2 - 2:30pm, we will check in, get the teams together, distribute hunt materials, and review rules and guidelines.

At 2:30pm the teams disburse and begin the 2-hour hunt! Teams will have until 4:30pm to decipher the clues and solve the riddles. The hunt will take you through numerous exhibits, collections, and artifacts.

At 4:30pm we will collect the results, score each team, and announce the winner. Fandango gift certificates will be awarded to each member of the winning team!

Following the hunt, we will adjourn to a nearby spot for food, drinks, and a recap of the afternoon!

We've got an early bird special for this event of only $20 (the price of 2 cocktails at many lounges / clubs)! The first 50 paid sign-ups, or those who pay before Sat. Jan. 11th (whichever comes first) get the early bird price! After that, the ticket price will go to $25. This event sells out quick, so make sure to reserve your spot, and get the early bird special!

Please note your ticket price goes towards the contracting company we hire to devise the scavenger hunt package, to include questions, answer key, and rules, as well as prizes for the winning team. Any remainder goes towards our Meetup group fees and expenses.

Also please know that your RSVP is not guaranteed unless we receive payment. When you pay, your online receipt is confirmation that we have received your payment.

Hope to see you there!

- J.T.

Metro and Parking

The closest Metro is L’Enfant Plaza (Blue / Orange / Green / Yellow lines). Exit Maryland Avenue / Smithsonian. We suggest Metro / cabbing if you can. We also recommend using wmata.com for travel planning. Don't forget to account for Metro, traffic, and parking delays. If you are driving, you will need to find street parking or a garage.

Suggested Items to Bring

Comfortable shoes 
WATER!

Payment Instructions (Paypal account not required):

Please follow the instructions below for making payment (if payment by smartphone doesn't work, please try your computer). Payment at the door will be permitted only should the event not sell out. Most of our events do sell out, so we recommend you secure your spot online early. If you make payment for less than the current ticketed price without prior correspondence, your RSVP will be removed.

1. Select "Yes" under "Will you attend?"

2. Enter the number of guests coming and click "Finish RSVP"

3. Click "Pay Now" at the top of the event posting near the ticket price per person

4. Verify correct dollar amount for number of people you're paying for, click "Pay Now" button

5. If you don't have a Paypal account, click "Pay with a Debit or Credit Card"

6. If you have a Paypal account, simply log in, and pay as you normally would via Paypal

Event Check-in

We will have a master list of all those that have paid. It’s not required, but I recommend printing out your payment confirmation as a backup. When you check-in, your RSVP will be listed under the name of the Paypal or credit card account used to make payment. Typically, this is your LEGAL name as shown on your driver's license. Sometimes, it may be under a company name if you set up your Paypal or credit card account that way. If you are not sure what it is, please take a moment to log into your Paypal account (it will say "Welcome, [your account name]" at the top) or your credit card account to find out. If you are RSVP'd under someone else's payment, please use that name for check-in.

Refund Policy & Ticket Resell

Since we paid in advance for this event, all sales are final unless the event is cancelled or rescheduled. Similar to a concert ticket or a football game ticket, you are free to sell your ticket to someone else if you are unable to attend. I suggest posting in the comment box for the event, that you have a ticket for sale. Work out payment between yourselves, and send us an email letting us know the full name and Meetup profile URL (if a member) of the person taking your spot. Thanks for understanding. =)

    Scavenger hunt enjoyable as always. Looks like they changed and added some stuff in the museum. Will have to go back and look at some of the exhibits in more detail.

    Here but I don't see a red flag? Where is everyone?

    January 18, 2014

    • Barnett H.

      Hope you eventually found the group. J.T. usually has the group gather at the entrance that doesn't face the National Mall. So in this case, the Independence Ave. entrance and not the Mall entrance.

    It was a freezing wait outside until we organized but I really liked those in my group and it was fun as long as you stayed on your toes. We also had a great team name-Wolf of Independence Ave. I look forward to the next scavenger hunt, hopefully at the Museum of American History-the concentration of my Bachelor's and Master's.

Your organizer's refund policy for Scavenger Hunt at the Air & Space Museum!

Refunds offered if:

  • the Meetup is cancelled
  • the Meetup is rescheduled

Additional notes: Since we paid in advance for this event, all sales are final unless the event is cancelled or rescheduled. Similar to a concert ticket, you are free to sell your ticket to someone else if you cannot attend. Send us an email with who will take your spot.

Payments you make go to the organizer, not to Meetup. You must make refund requests to the organizer.

Regardless of the refund policy set by the organizer, Meetup may issue refunds on an organizer's behalf if we determine that Meetup's Payment Policies have been violated.
