Here are the things you know for the Scavenger Hunt planned for ALA.

Yana Neko and myself will be heading/organizing this event.

This will be occuring at 1PM on Saturday.

There will be prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place teams. 1st place gets first dibs in choosing prizes.

We will give 30 minutes for the actual scavenger hunt. People may start gathering 30 minutes ahead of scheduled time and form teams. Volunteers may be monitoring the teams that come in early before Yana and I show up. We will wait no more than 5 minutes for late comers. There will be 4 people/team. Give or take 10-20 minutes before and after for rules to be mentioned, lists to be passed out, checking in teams, winners to be announced and prizes to be distributed.

Team names are not mandatory, but make sure you have 4 people/team. So if your group of friends happens to be more than 4, plan on going against friends. It should be fun, right?

Approximate time for everything: ~1 hour
Tentative Starting Time: 1PM Saturday Jan 29
Location: TBA (programming room and outside gathering area, not exact yet)

Please post your comments, suggestions and questions here. Thanks!!

As I pimp out the link to this post like mad, I sincerely encourage all of you to participate! I will be purchasing a lot of nice goodies for the prizes - perhaps some artbooks, DVDs, and manga sets. Don't miss out! Tell your friends ^_^

Oh, of course not, love! This is open to all ALA attendees. It'll just happen to occur after the Harry Potter Gathering for some of us.

ooooh how fun. I never had participate in a scavenger hunt at a con before, so this will be my first time.

If noone objects, you should call the meeting time at 1 pm and wait 5-10 minute pass, for anyone who may be late. You should also think of a place to meet too, since its always better to know early ahead of time. :D

So who would like to be in my team? Goes off to think of a team name.........

It's my first time organizing a scavenger hunt, but Yana has some experience, so hopefully it turns out well. I've been to other hunts at cons, so I know how it should flow for everyone participating in it. ^^

I think the meeting time will most likely be at 1PM (so it gives the cosplayers for 2PM to be at their location in time). So people SHOULD be there by that time, but they can start forming teams ahead of time. Of course there will be some leeway time for late comers, but we'll start when a good number of teams are gathered.

Since I haven't checked out the hotel yet, I can't say where we'll meet, but that should be decided soon enough. It'll be indoors tho, heh.

I don't want to give away *too* much, but yes to both.

You might have to convince people to get certain items. Make sure your group is well rounded with anime-con related knowledge (anime, jpop/rock, video games).

You should tell our programming team (prog (at) anime-la.org) that you'd like a 1:00 pm Saturday time slot. They ought to be able to put you into one of our two live program rooms. (Either the one in the middle, or the one that has the windows looking out onto location #1.)

uh never mind^^;; but the teams have to be 4 people?

I have that as a set number per team and Chaz knows this, too. I didn't know what to expect with participant numbers, so I didn't want it to be too much or too little.

How many people do you think will be on your team?

I'd like the number to be as consitent as possible since one team might have a better advantage over another if they have one or two more people than all the other teams. I'll try to see what I can do, but I think it'll be fun to go against the people you know and it's a way to meet new people, too.

Can teams consist of people that don't know each other.

Just a suggestion, but having a team captain would help for the teams.

Every team will be identified by their team number or color (we haven't decided yet).

Hazel Chaz

Every team will be identified by their team number or color (we haven't decided yet).

These are the colors that will be available for identifying teams (if Lumisnow goes with them): red, maroon, pink, peach, rose, neon fuchsia, old gold, orange, yellow, light yellow, bronze, tan, off-white, white, grey, lime green, light green, emerald, forest green, teal, navy blue, medium blue, light blue, blue, turquoise, lavender, purple, black, brown, rainbow, pastel rainbow.

(Bonus points for anyone who figures out why we have this particular list of colors... :) )

Stupid arse Mary, you already have one person on your team, that's all you need (joking). Hm...maybe Elyse and Eileen can be part of our team, David 'aint going so..

Sure, I can reserve it for you and your team!

I guess I will go with the colors since the ribbons are already made.

If any other team that wants to reserve now, let me know. This will help me organize better and your team can just check in quickly.

If something happens during the con and a team member is not there, it won't be a problem and we can just scratch it out that day.

Please provide:
1. all team members' name (real and/or aka)
a. real name can just be your first name
b. if you don't have all 4 members, it's ok. just leave blanks.
c. list the team captian as the first name (if your team has one)

2. color

3. team name (if applicable)

Not to complicate matters, but "pink, peach, rose, and neon fuchsia" are all shades of pink. Rose is perhaps the pinkest of the pinks, with neon fuchsia being a more in-your-face hot pink color. "Pink" is actually more pale than the others.

Of course, Lumisnow might just let you pick your color when you check in... since she's already let the cat out of the bag, I'll admit that these various colors I listed are all ribbon colors. We'll give the four of you matching ribbons, and the next team will get another color of ribbons, and so forth.

Hi, my real name is Ashley, and I would be happy to have you on my team. The only problem which may not be a problem is that I only have 2 people on my team, so we will have to find 1 more person to join. If you are interested please contact me at: rurouniashley@aol.com to make up a meeting place.
Thanks, because I kinda needed a team too.

Please, no Silly String as a prize? Whoever had it didn't clean up after themselves, there was s.s. on the mirrors in the foyer. (In general, you shouldn't leave a mess for someone else to clean up. Do I really have to print a rule in the program book about this?)

If you'll get me the leftover ribbons from this year, I'll set them aside for next year. (Did everyone get a color they liked?) And I'll order "Winning Team" ribbons for next year's hunt winners...

chaipnai
02-01-2005, 04:00 PM
I will keep that in mind for prizes next time around.

The ribbons were misplaced on my part. I had brought them to the hotel room I was in, and I wasn't able to find them after that. :/

Since the hunt was a little disorganized, we didn't have time to give out ribbons that people wanted (except for two teams).

Please call the hotel (818-997-7676) tell them the room you were in and when you checked out, and ask them if the bag of ribbons was found...

I apologise that we didn't have any more prizes. Actually, I had forgotten several items at home. Next year, I promise many, many more and of more variety! And no more silly string! Whoops.

But yes, thank you very much for playing, everyone. We hope to get many more people to play next year and we will be far more organized! I promise ^_^

So yes, please tell us how we can improve on and what you liked and didn't like. Give us some feedback, please and we'll promise to try harder next time. Feel free to PM us about it!

I guess a suggestion would be to be more specific about how you want us to acquire the items. I remember being unsure of whether I could just get a picture of something, or to actually bring the item in.

Yes! We will do that. XD
I thought I mentioned it over the mic, but I probably said this when everyone was talking amongst themselves. But no problem... I assumed people would understand that in a scavenger hunt, the point is to find and bring back the items... especially when only one item on the list was specified to take a digital picture. @_@ We've learned from the first experience.
