Chinese new year treasure hunt

http://sftreasurehunts.com/hunts/chinese_new_year/the_vitals.html
The Chinese New Year Treasure Hunt is a unique urban sleuthing adventure played on the streets of Chinatown, North Beach, and Telegraph Hill on the night of the annual Chinese New Year Parade. Treasure hunting teams have four hours to solve sixteen clues leading them to obscure landmarks, forgotten architectural delights and vestiges of San Francisco's colorful past. Players can come with a team already organized, or can join like-minded hunters at the event; it's a great way to make new friends.

Familiarity with San Francisco geography or history is useful, but is not required. The clues, or puzzles, are designed to test various skills: map reading; knowledge of popular culture, current events, science or literature; crossword puzzle solving; cracking simples codes, etc. Everyone on a team gets to contribute, and must collaboratively agree on what they think is the correct solution to each clue.

The challenge (and the fun) does not end there. The team must go to each of the mystery locations they have identified and search for landmarks referred to in the clue. Sharp eyes and close collaboration are required to spot the markers indicating they're in the correct place, and on the right trail.

Meet at Harrington bar and grill. We can go over the clues and set a plan of attack over a drink and a bite.Here is the link

    Adam was a great help and we solved 15 of 17 riddles. I was able to touch the parade dragon again this year. Also got a healthy walk out of it.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
