Scavenger Hunt at Jacksonville Arboretum

Sat., 3/1/14, 10:00am; Photo Scavenger Hunt at Jacksonville Arboretum.

We will meet at the Jacksonville Arboretum parking lot at 10:00am. (1445 Millcoe Road, Jacksonville, just off Monument Rd.) There is a limit of 31 (one leader, 30 team members) participants at this event.

This event is a competition among teams. The group will be divided into 5 teams of 6. The event leader has taken photos of objects (natural and man-made) along the lovely, winding trails of the arboretum. Each team should assign a leader who has walked the arboretum before (a route map will be issued) and one photographer (cell phones are fine) to match each of the photos the event leader has taken. Each team will be provided sheets of these photos. All the members of the team will be the spotters. The team which collects/matches the most photos correctly and arrives back at the parking lot first will win the team prize which is being donated by the event leader. (In the case of a tie at the finish, the team with the most correct matches wins.)

Those who chose to have lunch after the hunt can help decide where to go. Because of the use of cameras, this event will not be held in the rain – Rain date will be Sun., 3/2/14 at 10:00am. NOTE: This is likely to be a popular event which is limited to 31 people, and we want to have the same number of people on each team. As a result, if you sign up and it looks like you can’t attend, please give several days’ notice so that people who are on the wait list can join in. Leader: Tim S., cell #[masked]-3335.

A "guest release and Indemnity Agreement" form must be signed for each event. Blank waivers will be available at the event. However, please help reduce registration time prior to the event by printing the liability waiver (Guestwaiver.pdf) and turn in your completed /signed form to the trip leader at the event. The guest release is not required for members who have signed the annual waiver and paid $15 annual fee members are covered by our supplemental Insurance policy.

    Tim, it was so much fun. Thank you!
    It is just sad those on the waiting list could have gone if the no shows would have at least changed their RSVP the day before.

    The Scavenger Hunt was a lot of fun and good exercise on a perfect day at a beautiful location. We all had a great time! Just wish people would not say they were going,and then be no-shows without changing their RSVP (its selfish)as it keeps people who really wanted to go from attending when there is a limit on attendees.

    Roughly, how long do you think this will last? May have to withdraw due to a funeral. Thanks.

    Forecast is looking good for Sat.
    To all those on the waiting list: We can do the scavenger hunt again. There are 20 people on the wait list. With a few more, there would be no problem to have another one. I can schedule it at the planning meeting next week.

      That would be great if u could plan one for the waiting list group!

    Keep an eye on the forecast. Right now the long-range forecast is for 60% chance of rain Sat./0% chance on Sun. I'll post notices as the weekend gets nearer. We go Sunday if it rains Sat.
    Teams will be picked ad hoc when we get to the Arboretum. We need a navigator who knows the trails and someone to volunteer to take photos of the items for each team.
