Jacqueline and Kim were talking over scavenger hunt ideas and I had to jump on that. Here’s the list we came up with in the end. I’m posting it here so we can post our finds. It turns out I have the short-term memory of a (metaphorical) goldfish, so writing some of my finds down is essential. Otherwise I stare intently at people for far too long while I try to remember what was the thing I really wanted to tell them about.
Spirit Achievement – pic of you high-fiving an invited speaker
Local Experience – picture eating a breakfast burrito
