Scavenger Hunt at the Air & Space Museum!

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

UPDATE #4: There are still 14 spots left, so you may claim a spot by arriving early with exact cash. Also, there are usually 6 no-shows for this event, so you just might be able to join us. 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 Ave. entrance. Just a reminder, I'll be the one with the red kayak / ACK flag (12" x 12" in size)! Please account for Metro, traffic, and parking delays, and please arrive on time!

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 10 early bird spots left and the price will increase from $20 to $25 when the early bird spots are gone or by Sun. Aug. 17th (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. Aug. 10th. So make payment to *truly* lock in your spot (see the "Payment Instructions" section of the event posting). If you've already made payment, the Paypal email you received is confirmation that we've received your payment (no need to email me asking for ticket confirmation). I hope to see you there!

It's time for the next scavenger hunt!

We'll meet up at the Air & Space Museum (Independence Ave entrance) at 2pm. Please be ON TIME! We will check in, get the teams together, distribute hunt materials, and review rules and guidelines. At 2:30pm, the teams disperse 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 40 paid sign-ups, or those who pay by Sun. Aug. 17th (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! To make payment, please follow the steps in the "Payment Instructions" section of the event posting.

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.

I hope to see you there!

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 displayed 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

Since we paid in advance for this event, all sales are final unless the event is canceled or rescheduled. If the event is canceled, you will receive a full refund. If the event is rescheduled, an UPDATE will be posted at the top of the event posting, and the UPDATE will also be sent as an email to the yes RSVPs. A full refund will be given to those that let us know within 3 calendar days of the UPDATE email if you are unable to make the new date. No refunds will be given after that time. Thanks for understanding. =)

Ticket Resell

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 have the seller only send the organizer an email through their Meetup profile (do not comment in the comment box of the event posting) letting us know the full name and Meetup profile URL (if a member) of the person taking your spot. You must let us know by the RSVP close time of 11am on the day of the event.

Special Needs

If you have any special needs (e.g. wheelchair, dietary for events with food included, etc.), let us know in advance (a week or more before the event) and we will do our best to accommodate. If you let us know the day of the event, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to accommodate. Thank you for understanding and we appreciate the courtesy of a heads up!

    If part of the hunt is for the Bell X-1, I can point it out, but will need some help taking it down from the ceiling.

    I'll be coming alone as well, but I'm looking forward to meeting new people. Glad to hear I'm not the only one venturing out by myself.

  • Natalie w.

    I will be solo too - and I have the same view - staying at home is not that much fun. If you like I can meet you outside and we can go in together K? Let me know - it should be fun

    August 22

    • K Chandler S.

      I would like that very much! Lets coordinate over email if you are OK with that [masked]

      August 22

  • K Chandler S.

    I will be going alone. Is that the case with others? Truth be told not a fan of going places by myself but if I dont, then I will never go any where.

    1 · August 22

    • Dave

      Yup, heading in solo, but hope to meet some new friends during the hunt!

      August 22

    • K Chandler S.

      August 22

  • Geneb373

    I took my first steps in a little motel room across from the Oshkosh Airport at the EAA Fly In many years ago. I love this museum! It is the site of some of my fondest memories of my childhood with my dad. Cannot wait to participate in this event! I love this place!
