How to Play
Use this page to read about the treasure you can scavenge in our yearly meeting. Find as many or as few items as you like. Be sure to document your items as you complete them. For example, if you find one of the oldest people in your meeting and ask them to tell you a story about Quakers, make a note of the story so you can report it. You can play solo or as a team, although you may only play as an individual OR as a member of ONE team.
The Scavenger Hunt ends October 15, 2017.
To play as a team simply gather a group of Friends together. The team members can be from any PYM community and of any age. When you play as a team, the points accrued by each team member counts for the whole team. For example, if two team members go together to visit another meeting (9 points), the team gets 18 points. Teams can be as small or large as you like but they must work together and the team results need to be submitted at one time. Bonus! If your team includes Friends from 3 meetings: 10 points! If your team includes Friends from multiple generations: 10 points!
Our yearly meeting covers four states and many miles. Some Friends have fewer meetings close by so if they want to get points for scavenger hunt items that require visiting another meeting (or other location) they will have to travel. To even the playing field, Scavenger Hunters gain two extra points per person for every 25 miles traveled. This could also be used as an incentive to encourage Friends to go to a meeting that is further away than they have before. Players need to track how many miles traveled.
Fill out the form to submit your finds with responses, stories, pictures, etc. You will also be asked to list your name and contact info and the names of any team members. If you named your team you can share that as well. There is a space to make a comment for each item so if you have any extra stories or a case to make for extra points you can do that. There are extra points assigned for teams with members from 3 or more meetings or from multiple generations.
