    Default Pointless Prize: 2022 Photo Scavenger Hunt

    Rules:

    This year we have two competitions: a main competition and participation prizes! You can compete in both simultaneously or just one.

    • To compete for a participation prize you must (1) upload one or more photos of the item to your Strava ride for that day. (2) title your Strava ride with the hashtag #scavhunt. Please only hashtag ONE ride per day with #scavhunt. This hashtag will ensure you automatically show up and get ranked onto our scavhunt leaderboard (https://freezingsaddles.org/pointless/hashtag/scavhunt).
    • To compete in the main competition (with one or more points awarded daily based on photo creativity, beauty and/or the capricious whims of Millie and Rumi) your entries must be posted HERE on the Forum in this thread (http://bikearlingtonforum.com/showth...Scavenger-Hunt)

    Detailed rules are below:
    1. Obvs, you should be a participant in Freezing Saddles '22
    2. It has to be on a bike ride on the day it was requested
    3. For the main competition, it has to be posted in the Forum on the day for which it was requested, i.e., 12:01 AM EST to 11:59 PM EST for the day it was requested. Sorry, we won't count ones that aren't posted for the day it was requested. That's part of the challenge
    4. The reason we say "for the day it is requested" is because we will release a weekly list of scavenger hunt items ahead of time, with one item for each day -- but don't take and/or post the pic until that day comes.
    5. The Scavenger Hunt calendar will be updated weekly here: (https://tinyurl.com/2022scavhunt) Each (Saturday-Friday) week of items will have a common theme. We will always update it in advance of the week ahead so you have time to make plans!
    6. Your Forum post must be titled with the date and the found object/theme. Example: IF the item for January 1st was "borscht", you would title your Forum post: 1/1/2022 borscht
    7. Description, short backstory or location are optional (but nice). That said, if your pic is abstract or not obviously relatable to my request, please explain (e.g., I ask for "happiness", and you post a pic of a tennis ball you found on a ride, please explain how that tennis ball = happiness)
    8. It has to be a picture you took. You don’t need to be in the photo, but if you are in it, it either has to be a selfie or done with a self-timer
    9. Only one pic/day should be posted in the Forum. Please don't pad by adding more than one pic/day. (You can include as many photos as you want on your strava ride.)
    10. It has to be a picture, not a video
    11. Let's stick to things you find out there during your ride, and not things that you bring or make yourself (unless otherwise specified). Example 1: if I say find "2022", don't scratch it into dirt. Example 2: if I say find a flower, don't bring a flower with you on your ride and take a pic of that. This kinda takes the fun out of looking for things, which is the whole point.
    12. Unless specified otherwise, your bike does not have to be in the photo.
    13. Found item needs to be clear and discernible (or legible if text) in the picture. If you are using Tapatalk and are having trouble posting pics that are large enough, let us know and I/we can try to help you with it.
    14. Filters are OK, but no obvious/blatant photoshopping... not that we would know anything about such things


    Scoring

    Scoring will be different for FS22 and there are two different prizes you are competing for simultaneously:

    • Main Competition: To compete in this prize you must post in this Forum ( http://bikearlingtonforum.com/showth...Scavenger-Hunt ) complying with the rules above. Scoring will be arbitrary and capricious, and only one person per day is guaranteed to get a point each day. Hopefully this will cut down on some of the back-end work. How will you be the lucky point-winner for the day? Impress us with your creativity. Since we are publishing an entire week at a time, it should give you some time to come up with a creative idea. The rider with the most Main Competition points at the end of the competition is the... winner of the Main Competition.
    • Participation Winners: There will also be participation awards for the top tier of daily participants. Tag one ride each day with #scavhunt, add your photo(s) of the item, and watch this leaderboard https://freezingsaddles.org/pointless/hashtag/scavhunt . This will be scored automatically by the leaderboard itself (one point per daily #scavhunt ride), is honor-based. Please do not tag more than one ride per day with the hashtag. Anyone in the top 10% of the leaderboard (based on number of rides, not mileage!!) at the end of Freezing Saddles will get a special prize!


    Good Luck! Millie and Rumi
