This Week 2015-Jun-23 Photo Scavenger Hunt

know-your-district “A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away… oops, wrong story. Back when I used to ride my T-Rex to school, the Cub Scouts had a boomerang test called ‘Know your District’ for which they needed to know where various public buildings were located, where to locate a public phone box, and where other useful items were located in the area that they lived. Being much older and wiser Venturers, this should not be a problem for us. (or will it?)

BRING: camera/phone/device to take photos, anything else you think might help

In teams, you will be using your camera/phone/device to take photos of “wanted items” from a list that will be provided on the night.

• Venturers will be divided into 2 teams
• Each team writes up members list and 2 x contact mobile numbers on the white board
• Teams are sent out with a copy of the “wanted items” list (released on the night)
• 1 point deducted for every minute after 9:15PM return (so you’ll have to plan carefully)
• You will not be able to collect all items
• Most points wins.

MEET: at the hall at 7:30pm
PICKUP: At the hall 9:30pm
Organised by: Leaders & Rovers
