We have chosen a date for the New York City Scavenger Hunt, August 11, 2012 at 2:00 PM.
We are still planning to do an online scavenger hunt; however, we wanted to work out the details of this meet up first before committing to another scavenger hunt.
Date: August 11, 2012
Time: 2:00 PM – 6:00 PM
Location: East side of Union Square Park, across from Babies R Us, between 14th and 16th Street
Nearest subway lines: N, Q, R, 4, 5, 6
Mags and I will be wearing “Laters, Baby” T-Shirts
What will you be hunting for?
Fifty Shades stuff of course! Sadly none of the book takes place in NY so we’re improvising.
* There will be a few adult items, but not many. You will be able to bring a child with you if you would like and skip those items.
* There will be a few items for purchase, you’ll need to keep the receipts. You are welcome to return them after the hunt if you would like and the store allows it.
* You will need a camera, camera phones are fine. There will be a lot of photo opportunities. We reserve the right to inspect your camera photos before the hunt.
* You may form teams with a maximum of 4 people, we encourage you to name your team – be creative! You’ll need to take a photo of your team at the start of the event so we can reference it when counting points.
We have created an Eventbrite registration page, please register ahead of time. That will help us figure out how many people are coming so we can prepare ahead of time. We will allow you to register up until the start of the event.
In order to get people to register early and recoup some of the costs of the scavenger hunt the event will be free for the first 25 registrants and $5 for everyone after that.
Some other notes:
* There will be prizes, we just don’t know what yet.
* We would love to go out for a drink after and get to know you.
* You’ll probably want a Metro card for the day, you will have to travel around the city, primarily Manhattan.
* You may use your phone/Internet/phone a friend for help.
If you have any questions please post in the comments section so that everyone can reference the information.
If anyone is interested in sponsoring the event, please send us an email: latersbaby50(@)gmail(dot)com.
Hope to see you there,
Crissy and Mags
UPDATE (July 26): We will have some jewelry and T-Shirts as prizes, we’re continuing to work on more prizes.
