Scavenger Hunt in Boston

I got this idea from a few different meetups. It's wicked fun and helps you discover the city more.

There will be teams of 5. We will all start at the same area.and end up at a restaurant. There will be a few other meetup groups joining us. People must have a phone that can take and send pictures & videos for proof of the activities. There will be points and all members must do it for your team to earn points! I ask everyone to put in $10. The winning team will get the money!

We will meet at the Frog Pond in the Boston Commons at 11am. Here are the things that need to be found in the Scavenger Hunt:
----
-Give a Police office a high five (5 pts)
-Hug a random bald man (10 pts)
-Dance with an old Asian woman (15 pts)
-Go to the Mayor's office and do a 10 second dance in the lobby (video) (25 pts)

    This was such a great idea. It brought together such a fun crowd and we all had a really great time. I hope Omama will organize another one at some point. It was great to meet everyone!

    Leader came more than ONE HOUR late! Also changed the start time at last minute. However, the Scavenger Hunt itself was GREAT! This is a FANTASTIC idea! PLEASE do it again---but MORE organized. Changing the rules/goals at the last minute by the Leader was also VERY confusing! Do NOT charge people $10 to join the game---make it a nominal amount like $5 that is more affordable for everyone. Next time try Bertucci's for the after-party. Much better food than Uno's.

      Couldn't agree more!! I.think it's actually a great idea too, but I was crushed to find I couldn't wait any longer because leader was soooo late! We really need another leader! But I also think it's unfair to charge anything ...why the $10? Who gets it?
