    Had a blast! I was pleasantly surprised by how helpful the store employees and pedestrians were as we crazily surrounded them to get our items for the hunt!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
