The Hunt is on!

A list of items I would put down on my own Detroit Scavenger Hunt

Calling all Detroit-lovers, explorers, competitors, and anyone else looking to have a good time - clear tomorrow's agenda because this is one event you don't want to miss!

For the very first time, Detroit Synergy and Get in the Game are hosting a scavenger hunt throughout Detroit, and you're invited. Yep, a scavenger hunt, just like the ones you participated in when you were a kid. I've actually participated in a scavenger hunt with adults before, and it was a blast. It's also a great ice-breaker, too, so don't worry if you don't know your teammates very well beforehand; you'll develop instant camaraderie as you fiercely compete for the day's top prize - a 10-pack of VIP rooftop tickets to the Target Fireworks on June 29.

Could your items be somewhere in here?

Check-in for the scavenger hunt begins at 11:30 am at Campus Martius Park, located along Woodward Avenue, downtown. Participants must be 18 or over, and teams will be made up of 3-5 people. If you want to participate, but can't get a team together by the morning, don't worry - I got an e-mail bulletin from Detroit Synergy this afternoon that said singles or pairs should notify the registration person at check-in, who will then help pair you up with other one- and two-somethings.

Once you're all checked-in, you'll be given maps, bottled water, and clues to the items you are in search of. The Hunt begins at 1 pm and concludes at 4:30 pm. All teams are asked to report back to Campus Martius Park at the end of the hunt, so an awards ceremony can begin at 5 o'clock.

There is still time to register before the event tomorrow. You can do that

Good luck and happy hunting!
