Scavenger Dash Tampa 2010
At the Scavenger Dash you are given a set of 12 clues. You solve the clues and then begin to trek around the city to take photos with the objects to prove you went there. The clues below are in the order that we visited them throughout the city. You only need to get 11 and get back first to win, but we wanted to get all 12 - and we did! Only 3 teams out of the 26 got all twelve that day. Jake & I got them, and my parents went with us and did all 12 as well.
PHOTOS TO COME LATER - They are taking too long to upload.

For clues that didn't require a picture we had:
