The Great Minnesota Photo Scavenger Hunt

Tomorrow is the first day of the 2010 Minnesota State Fair. I will be in attendance and hope to get back on the SP bandwagon by giving a full rundown of the fair (both my visits this year) on the site, but in the meantime, thanks to Jill for sharing her annual Photo Scavenger Hunt.

I won’t be able to participate this year, but I’ll keep my eyes open. Here’s the list if you’d like to play along during your visit to the fair.

SCAVENGER HUNT
Rules/Directions:
1. Attend State Fair on date with your teammates of choice and fully-charged digital camera. Meet by Space Tower at X p.m. to receive your list of scavenger hunt items.
2. Run around, take photos, gather items, laugh out loud, have fun, and eat food (not necessarily in that order). Team members may split up but all photos must be on 1 camera.
3. Note that photos/items on the list can’t serve a dual purpose (e.g., Paper pig ears, although free, can’t earn points in both the “FREE Item” category and the “Headgear” category).
4. Return to Space Tower by X+1 p.m. to review your photos/items and determine your score. Extra points awarded in “Best Of” category are in sole discretion of Judge (bribes welcome).
5. Post-hunt revelry and award ceremony at nearby Leinie’s Lodge.
