Thunderbird House launches digital scavenger hunt

Maybe something you might try in your community.  The list of items could include having your photo taken in the bingo hall. or the back seat of a police car, or with a powwow dancer, or anything and anyone. Hope you give it a try. 

Okay time to make up your teams, and challenge other teams. This is a fun event with plenty of time to finish, doesn't cost a whole lot, gets you away from the computer for much of the contest, but also is super fun.
Teams of four so if you don't know what a computer is, your team-mate will. It will be easy, take the clues (to be given on start date of February 23, 2013) A good opportunity to challenge other colleagues, offices, friends and family.
We are hoping to get at least 40 teams.
Let us know if we missed any details on the contest, so we can address before the start date.

Good luck.

Please share this email with your contact lists.

Thunderbird House
Digital Scavenger Hunt  
Game:  Teams will search for a set of items and record the items with a digital camera or camera phone. First team to successful collect all items in the allotted time, wins the contest. 

Contest: Teams made up of four (4) players will be given a list of items. Each team will look for the item and record a successful find. Anyone of the four members must be included in the photograph of found item. Items may include people, places, or things. Some of the items may be disguised by a clue or riddle. Items that are in a digital database and not able to be photographed should include the URL.  Team leaders will be given a list of items once the date for contest entry has closed.

Rules:  Have fun. Not just fun but lots of fun. No photo-shop of pictures with you and a lion. Try to get in the cage with them. Don’t trespass or push people out of your shot.  Upload your team photos onto photobucket for other teams and Thunderbird House can track your progress (can encourage others to step up their game, or de-moralize your opponent). List the photobucket team name and post on Thunderbird House facebook page. Like the Thunderbird House page so you can post on it.  And most of all, it is a game, a contest for fun and entertainment. We encourage fun and kindness to all of your competitors. Pick a team that will compete right to the end. TBH will list names of teams and updates on their facebook page. Oh yes, and if you don’t win, smile and give all the best to the winning team. Teams are open to anyone in Manitoba. We hope to limit the travel to the City of Winnipeg. Not going to expect someone to travel to Cuba or to Churchill for a picture.We could assign points to each list item, in that way in case of a tie, the person with the most points wins, and failing that, we will put the teams in a draw to see who wins. That would be fair.

Costs: $40.00 (forty dollars) per team. That is 10 bucks a person in each team. Entry fee will be collected by Sasha Marshall at TBH and the winner will receive fifty percent (50%) of the entrance fee. TBH is trying to have a video security system installed for $1,500.00. Thus the reason for the cost of the game.

Activity: Get a team of four people. Can be friends, colleagues, facebook buddies or acquaintances. Pay your forty bucks to Sasha at Thunderbird House. Entry deadline February 22, 2013 at 1:00 p.m. Lists will be sent out to team leaders via email on February, 23, 2013 at 1:00 p.m. You must have an email address for the list or pick one up at 2p.m. February 22. The list will remain under lock and key by security expert Sasha Marshall of Thunderbird House. Last day to have digital images loaded will be March 18, 2013 at 1:00 p.m. First one to complete the list will win according to posted date and time on TBH facebook page or first email to reach Sasha Marshall at Thunderbird House. 

Good hunting.
