Smile 2012 MH Scavenger Hunt

~UPDATE~
All ScavHunt participants (excluding judges) will be entered in a drawing for a free trackday and for a free oil change.

Two lucky winners will be drawn and announced that evening during the judging.
Details will be provided at Chuys at 11:30am during "The Reveal."

To be eligible one must
1. own a motorcycle
2. enter at 11:30am that morning
3. participate in the full ScavHunt
4. be present at the time of judging that evening



~The Details~

When: Saturday, April 21st

* I checked the track schedule, and the only one listed is NOLA, so I'm hoping a bunch of our track folks will be able to play. Also, 4/21 is my birthday--I rly wanna celebrate with an MH ScavHunt day.


Where: Chuy’s: 2706 Westheimer Road, Houston, TX

Check In: 10:45am (Chuy's opens at 11am; arrive a bit early so we can occupy the patio)

The Reveal: 11:30am

Final Location for Judging: This will be at 8:00pm at the same Chuy's listed above. This will give folks who couldn't come the ScavHunt a chance to come hang out and hear the war-stories first hand.



~The Deal~

*Teams must consist of at least 4 people, no more than 6, and at least three bikes must be active.
* Each team must consist of at least 3 actual MH members. Mature friends or relatives may also participate.
*At least one member must bring a digital camera to record challenges
*At least one member needs a backpack or tank bag to carry small items


At 11:30am I'll give each team a list of items to be found and challenges to be met. Each task is scored on a 1-100 point scale. The more difficult the item is to acquire or the challenge is to complete, the more points it’s worth. The team with the most points at the end of the day wins.

I'm setting the start and end meets in a central location so teams can go to whichever side of town their most comfortable with. I figure it keeps any group from having an unfair advantage.

It will be impossible for any team to complete all of the challenges on the list. Each group must decide what strategy to employ to get the most points. Teams CAN NOT separate during the hunt.

I strongly suggest each person order a satisfying but light lunch at Chuy's. You're gonna need the sustenance; time goes fast on ScavHunt days.




~Need Volunteers~


*Need fair, impartial judges who can bring laptops to view digital pics at the final meetup. An assortment of card readers will be very helpful as well.
*Any sponsors or members willing to donate prizes, please send me a PM. Will appreciate all offers.


Judges are not required to make the morning reveal unless they want to. It'll be fine if they want to wait and show up at the 8:00pm meeting at Chuys.

~Sign up Below!~

Start thinking about a team name. Ya gotta have one on the day of the ScavHunt.

If you don't have a team but want to participate, start a "Looking for teammates" list.

New MH'ers and noobs--if you haven't really met anyone yet, don't let that stop you! Trust me, at the end of the day, you'll know some peeps quite well.

Methinks so--we've got an adventurous group of folks.

Previous champs--feel free to throw down the gauntlet. ScavHunt smacktalk is always fun.
