Photo Scavenger Hunt - Denton Downtown square

 T.D. Hathcock has asked to run a Scavenger Hunt event. 

So this is his time to shine! Go have fun - and by the way - Prizes will be given! 

I am proposing Saturday 2/15 9am. Downtown square Denton, start at the steps of the courthouse. 

Photo Scavenger Hunt, here's how it works: 

1.) 10 categories of photos.
2.) Post one photo for each category, all photos for judging must be posted by Tuesday 2/18 , it's OK if you don't do them all. 
3.) Label the photo so we know which category it is for. 
4.) No photo can be for more than one category. 
5.) After all the photos are posted, we all comment on the ones that get our votes. 
6.) We each get one vote per category, votes will be tallied by Thursday 2/20. 
7.) The winner is the one who gets the most votes total. Overall winner gets a $25 gift card to Arlington Camera.

8.) The winner also get to choose the date and location for the next Photo Scavenger hunt. 
9.) You can just make this a 'photo walk' if you want. You don't have to compete. Simply don't label photos you post. 
10.) That reminds me - don't waste your votes on photos that aren't labeled because they wont be counted.

I'll print several copies of the category list and pass them out that morning (for those that want them). 

1)  Macro/ Close-up  

2)  Street Portrait  

3)  Brilliant  

4)  Architecture  

5)  Sweet  

 6)  Beverage

7)  Strength

8)  The letter “D”

9)  Brick

10) Western

·  Post only one photo for each category, all photos for judging must be posted by Tuesday 2/18 , it's OK if you don't have a photo for all Categories. 

·  Label the photo so we know which category it is for. 

·  After all the photos are posted, we all comment on the ones that get our votes. 

·  We each get one vote per category; votes will be tallied by Thursday 2/20.

    Ok, the votes have been cast and we ended up with a tie for 1st place (Ron C and Lynn Rogers Harris) they both ended up with a total of 15 votes each. Guys, email me your address and I will send on the Arlington camera, gift cards ($25 each).
    Here are some more stats:
    Second place with 12 votes = Ginger
    Third place with 11 votes = Ray

    The photo with the highest number of votes, Sweet by Lynn with 7 votes (listed as thumbnail for meetup)
    There were 3 other photos which had 5 votes each they are the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th pictures in the photos (2 of these belong to Ron C)
    The macro catagory had the most votes with 12, Street Portrait, Sweet, "D" and Brick all had 11 votes each.
    total of 91 votes cast.

    I think this turned out to be a really good event. The winners now can choose the next date and place for the scavenger hunt, or they can defer to me.
