We always wrap up our hike season with a scavenger hunt, and this year, it's in Shadyside (and bits of other neighborhoods like East Liberty). If you haven't experienced one of these before, here's what you need to do: 1)Gather up a team of 3-5 people. 2)Make sure someone on your team has a digital camera, and clear it of photos (especially the embarrassing ones). Bring the camera and its connection cord to the hunt (so we can download your photos onto our computers and show them to the world).
When: October 21, 2007. Clues distributed at 1:30 pm; hunt ends at 4 pm. Post-game show featuring prizes and your finest photos from 4 till about 5, or longer if we're still enjoying each other's company.
We'll start outside East Liberty Presbyterian Church, 116 S. Highland Ave. Street parking is pretty easy to come by (you don't have to feed the meters on Sundays).
Ending location: Double-secret. But we can tell you there will be refreshments available (pay your own way).
