One of the other sites I frequent http://www.sohc4.net/ is having just too much fun with this, so I thought we should give it a try.

A Photo Scavenger Hunt, You find the item, The “MARK” called for and take a picture of it with your Goldwing. If you are the first person to get the mark you get to call the next one.

Rules are simple:

1. All pictures MUST include your Goldwing with the 'mark'. If your bike isn't in the picture it does NOT count.

2. All marks must be clearly visible in picture.

3. Once a picture of the mark with your Goldwing is posted, the person who hit the mark first gets to call the next mark.

4. No law breaking allowed including trespassing to get a mark, it has to be accessible to anyone.

5. No pictures, paintings or other facsimiles of the mark in the photo, has to be the real thing, NO Photoshop type stuff.

6. Once you get a mark and call the next one, someone else has to get a mark before you can hit one again.

7. ALL MARKS WILL RECIEVE A FIVE DAY TIME LIMIT. If the mark is not found in that time a new (easier) mark needs be called.

8. The picture of the mark should be a new picture taken just for the Scavenger Hunt after the mark is called.


If you do not have a Goldwing or your Goldwing is not mobile at this time Another Motorcycle from your stable will be allowed in the picture, but this is a Goldwing forum so a Goldwing is preferable.


* Not really a rule, but let's keep it interesting, so no stupid stuff like a fence or a dog - use your imagination and your bike to get to it.

Also, naming a mark like the Washington Monument means 99% won't be able to get it but a mark like Monument would be good so make your marks accessible to most of our members and international members if possible.

If you really think about it, there are more interesting things than you could name within a 30 minute ride of anyone.



Bonus points are given (worth exactly nothing but fun to go for) for any of the following:

1. You are in the picture in addition to your bike.

2. Extra bonus points if you are wearing or have Steve Saunders Logo’ d items in the picture.

3. The person calling the mark can call for bonus points to make the item more difficult, fun or interesting. Example: The mark, Police Car, bonus points if you are in the picture handcuffed.



Let me know if there is anything that needs clarification or anything to enhance the fun.

If this catches on maybe one of the Mods could make it a sticky?

Have fun and good luck.



As an example I will start the hunt off with a mark of Sail Boat.

Here is my photo of my Goldwing with a sailboat(s).





I am calling the next mark of Water Tower.

This looks like it could be a blast! Question though...does it have to be a Goldwing, or can those of us with broken Wings use the currently running bike in the stable?

I'm thinking of pushing the 1200 Aspy up the hill to the town standpipe here...Ain't happenin'!:sadguy:

This one would not be fare. To many cops on this forum would have an unfare advantage. :yelling::shock:

I was thinking about that after I posted.

I would not want to exclude any of our high profile members like you and CJ. :needahug:

I would allow a nongoldwing so long as it is a Motorcycle and it is listed in your profile or signature, but since it is a Goldwing forum a Goldwing is preferable. :action:

Does that sound reasonable?

Sakryn,

I hope you don't mind I lightened up your photo for you.



and it most certainly is acceptable (Was acceptable even before I lightened it up)

I can't wait to see what Arena/Stadium wins the next mark.

Great work guys.

No Worries on the lightening, I followed the "No Photoshop" rule completely and didn't touch anything just put up the raw sized version, thanks.

Here you go, Cheney Stadium, Tacoma.




And a couple of bonus points shots, one in front of the stadium, couldn't get the guy to back up more :D, and one in back of the stadium. If you look close you'll see a green goldwingfacts.com patch on my left chest of my coat too. :cheesygrin:



Guess where the camera was on this shot. :D


The next object in this scavenger hunt, a pond. Bonus points if the pond has a duck or a goose, and double bonus if it has a swan. :cheesygrin:

I decided not to wait until after work today, since you East coast guys get off 3 hours before I do, so I went over to Tacoma on my lunch to get the pictures. :ROFL::ROFL:

A bonus I didn't take a picture of but should have, there was an MSF course in progress in the parking lot at Cheney Stadium. :action:
