Clues, Booze and Brews!! This one is going to be a riot!

The details you've all been waiting for have finally been released!!  We are having our first 'scavenger hunt' of sorts.....  Clues and Booze (to keep the Happy Hour theme) will start off in the Novi area and take you around Novi, Northville, Plymouth and Livonia for 2 1/2 hours of fun and controlled mayhem!!   

You will be split into groups (to be determined by me-randomly) and off you go with a list of things.  Some will be clues of where to find a certain item that you need to return with, others will be more 'event' based, such as 'your whole team must take a funny photo with a certain statue'.  There's some hilarious ideas on our list-but you will have to wait until the big day to see them!  You will have a long list with points.  Some will give you more points than the others.  It's up to your group to determine what you will do (or what you are WILLING to do!) or what you will collect and where you will go in order to collect the most points before the 4:30 pm deadline to be crowned the Winter 2014 Clues and Booze winners!!!  This one is guaranteed to be RIOT!! 

When to meet:  Saturday, February 8th, 1pm 

Arrive at 1 pm and sign in & pay, 1:30 pm Instructions and group assignments will be handed out.  You might also be given a bag of 'props'-to be explained later, You will then determine a 'team captain' and come up with a good name for your team!  2pm is when you will released from the bar to go gather your points!!


Where:  Doc's Sport's Retreat

Ends:  Participants must return to the chosen bar no later than 4:30 pm!!  You can return earlier if you want if you believe you have enough points to win!  Participants who arrive after 4:30 will have points deducted for every 5 minutes that  they are late!  So don't be late.....  plus you need to go home and get ready for our 'Birthday Party Mixer" in the evening! 

PRICE:  Yep.  There's a price tag on this one.  $15/per person.  There's an awful lot of work going into this one along with some amazing prizes!! 

Prizes:  First and Second Place Teams will all win a great prize!  I might go to a third place as well but that will be determined by the number of participants!  (because guess how I'm paying for your prizes??!!)   

I hope to see you all there!  I have also invited the Brightoneers and the Happy Hour in Grand Rapids group.   My RSVP reflects the number of people I have coming from the two other groups.  The more the merrier!

    I think as a group regardless of who won the things we should remember are the time and effort Melissa put into organizing the scavenger hunt for us and how much fun we all had participating in it. Look forward to seeing the pictures taken by the teams.

      Thanks, Scott!

  • Melissa

    I will need to know who will be willing to be drive their team. Please post. I will require the driver to be a DD. Safety first! But then maybe your team mates will buy you a drink or two if you like upon your return for all your hard work! I know most people have a smart phone these days that could be used for picture and emailing the pictures. A digital camera will work as well if you prefer. Only one per team is actually needed but come prepared please!
