It's time for another scavenger hunt! This will be a somewhat down-sized version of our big halloween scavenger hunt last fall. Teams of 2 to 4 will explore the trails of North Chagrin to answer questions and find various items. Please indicate on your RSVP who you are teaming up with, or indicate if you are looking for someone to pair with so that others may respond.
Topographic orienteering maps will be distributed to participants. Each team will also receive a clue sheet where you will fill in answers to questions based on landmarks throughout the park. You will then have 2 1/2 hours to collect as many answers/points as possible and return to the finish.
Please bring a pen and maybe a clipboard, folder or something similar to write on. You will also be scavenging in the woods to collect several items so bring a small plastic grocery bag. And one member of each team should bring some sort of digital camera, as several locations will require a picture as proof that you were there. No special skills are needed other than the ability to follow trails on a map. A compass is not required but might be useful for some.
Afterwards we'll enjoy a potluck lunch and exchange stories from the trail. Please bring a dish to share as well as your sense of adventure! Please include on your RSVP what food you will be bringing.
Some trails are muddy due to the recent rains so please plan accordingly.
This park has some great early-season wildflowers so please join us for a fun spring morning on the trails!!
NOTE: The course and map for this scavenger hunt will be nearly identical to the one used for this event last spring. Those who participated last year are welcome to come again and perhaps visit portions of the park that they didn't get to see last time. But your score will remain "unofficial" since your prior knowledge of the course would give you an unfair advantage ;) Those who participated last year are also requested not to share any information/answers with our new racers this year!
