Singles Event - Light Rail Scavenger Hunt

This is a cross-post between this group and my Phoenix Active Single Adventurers group.

We have come up with questions that can be answered in a scavenger hunt format at light rail stations and buildings along the light rail line from the Osborn and Central station to the Jefferson and 3rd Street station.

We will start at the Starbucks in Park Central on Central Avenue between Osborn and Thomas Roads.  As members come we will put you in groups and send you on your way with a list of questions.  When your group has answered all the questions you can join your trio of organizers (Lisa, Leana, and Abbey) at the Tilted Kilt in Cityscape downtown for drinks or food.

There are no prizes - this is just meant to be a fun event where people can get out and meet and interact with other singles.

You can save time by buying your all day light rail pass at a retail location in your area (http://www.valleymetro.org/sales_locations/retail_outlet_map for a list).

    I loved it! It was great fun meeting everyone. I had a history buff in my group that taught me a lot about Phx but the best was the homeless man peeing

    Glad everyone had fun. Our next one will be in Tempe! If you have any suggestions on ways we can improve the event let me know. We will try not to plan it on a day where 700 people will be doing another scavenger hunt in the exact same place :0)

    I wish I could make it but I am not feeling good.

  • Jesse Novotny

    I'm not single but I just moved to Tempe and my partner is still in LA. This seems like a great way to meet other locals. I just won't be as flirty ;-)

    I paid cash today with a $5 bill and the machine only gave me a quarter. I don't know if that's because I bought my pass early? FYI.

    March 5, 2013

    • Lisa

      Was it a quarter or a dollar coin? It gives dollar coins as change.

      1 · March 5, 2013

    • Jessica

      You are right it was a dollar.

    Please make sure you keep your rsvps updated and current and Thanks Lisa for Putting this on How Fun

  • Sue

    what time do you think this will be over? I have an event after.

    March 7, 2013

    • Lisa

      The hunt itself will likely take 2 hours or less. It would be up to you how long you would want to stay at Tilted Kilt. You can leave when your group checks in if you want.

      March 7, 2013

    • Sue

      thanks

      March 7, 2013

  • Jessica

    I'm excited!

    March 7, 2013

  • Lisa

    I have now started a waiting list to cap the total at 53.

    March 7, 2013

  • Lisa

    I closed the event to RSVPs because the Tilted Kilt can only take up to 70 in the party room. On the off chance that everyone shows and brings a few more friends (unlikely) we need to close it now. Looking forward to seeing you all though!

    We are all set for the scavenger hunt. The Tilted Kilt is expecting us and is giving us the party room for our event. Please don't arrive after 1:30pm because the organizers will no longer be putting together groups after 1:30. Also remember to bring a pen or pencil. All day passes are now $4 and security did check for tickets when we were putting together our second list of questions Sunday.

    We may have to put one guy per group if more men don't sign up. We are coming up with a second set of questions so we can have two groups start at a time instead of 1.
