The Fantastic 50s+ group will hold a Photo Scavenger Hunt in San Francisco. I've participated in a number of similar events in the past and found them a lot of fun. The gist of this event will be as follows:

1. We will gather at Washington Square Park in the North Beach neighborhood in SF on Sunday, August 19th at 11am. The actual meeting spot will be sent to all those RSVP'ing closer to the date of the event. There will be a $2 fee to help defray costs of supplies/materials needed for the event.

2. Attendees will be randomly organized into teams of four people. Each team will need to have at least one digital camera among them.

3. Each team will receive a local area map and a set of clues that will direct them to 10 walkable locations within the area roughly bounded by Bay, Battery, California, and Hyde Streets. This neighborhood includes North Beach, Chinatown, Russian Hill and Telegraph Hill.

4. The teams will be required to take a photo at each location to 'mark' that they have successfully found that location. In some cases, there will be specific directions regarding what should be included in the photo (e.g., 'Take a photo that includes a passersby walking a dog at the location.')

5. Teams should try to get their 10 photos and return to starting location as quickly as they are able but will be required to return by a certain time, regardless of how many (or few) of the locations they have found and successfully photographed.

6. Gold, Silver, and Bronze 'medals' will be awarded to the first 3 teams to return with the highest number of verified photos at a "Closing Ceremony".

After the Ceremony, those who wish to can join me for some lite snacks and/or beverages and conversation at a local cafe/bistro.

I've completed the process of identifying the 10 locations in the area and attendees shoud be prepared to exercise their legs as well as their brains as they sort out the clues that will lead them to and fro in North Beach, Chinatown, and bordering streets.

PLEASE NOTE: Remember to update your RSVP should your plans change; it is important that we have as accurate a count as possible so we can prepare for the event appropriately.
