Individuals and teams (consisting of 3 to 5 riders) will be given a list of at least 35 sites/things around town to be photographed. Points will be assigned to each photo. Each participant must furnish their own digital camera with picture review capability (Bring extra batteries!). The hunt should last three or four hours. All participants and their bikes must appear in each photo (so it would be a good idea to have a camera with a timer!). Execute as many of the assigned photo tasks as possible within the time limit of the event. The individual or team that captures the most prescribed photos will be declared the winner. This is not a race. Finishing first means nothing. All ties will be broken by coin toss/drawing straws.
Entry fee should be determined by the type of group involved … maybe $25 for individuals and $75 for teams. Each participant must furnish a safe operational bicycle for their transportation throughout the event (tandems, triples, and trikes are permitted). Helmets must be worn at all times. All traffic laws and rules of the road are to be followed by participants. Participants are advised that they assume all responsibility for your personal well being.
We have included a number of do-it-yourself fundraising ideas in this section that offer a break from traditional product sales. They were developed by groups just like yours in an attempt have a little fun with their fundraiser. Some of them are tried and true while others show a lot of creativity … and even wackiness in some cases. All of them are obviously not appropriate for every group, but sometimes, with only a little modification, your might find some fund raising ideas that are perfect for your group. If you have an idea for a do-it-yourself fund raiser you are willing to share with others, please send it to us via email. Include anything and everything you would want to know if you were hearing the idea for the first time.
