On Saturday, December 4th, 1,250 costumed do-gooders descended on Dodger Stadium to take part in the annual city-wide LA Scavenger Hunt. Upon registration each of the 300 teams was given a list of 100 scavenger items and tasks to perform, forty of which raised material goods for the LA Food Bank and Union Rescue Mission, and another 60 of which were purely ridiculous.
In addition to getting the word out on this grass roots charity donation drive, Incase again helped underwrite the scavenger hunt’s production costs and supplied tote bags to the participants and 25 backpacks to the winning teams. In all, the scavenger hunt raised more than $100,000.00 in much-needed material goods in time for the holidays.
To Sean Carlson and Phil Hoelting at FYF Productions, and to all of the scavenger hunt participants—we thank you for time, energy, and enthusiasm on this one. The scavenger hunt is an enormously fun and productive community event. We feel honored to have had a hand in it. We’ll see you again next year.
After nearly two-years of planning, Sean Carlson and Phil Hoelting at FYF Productions are again throwing another citywide L.A. Scavenger Hunt on Saturday, December 4th, 2010. Hilarious costumes, dedicated teams, 100 sketchy item requests, adult diapers, flowing capes, etc… This is guaranteed to be an all-day funtastic freak out. As part of our sponsorship of this very special event, we’re giving away 25 assorted Incase backpacks and messenger bags to the lucky five winning teams.
Q: How does the L.A. Scavenger Hunt actually work?
A: Good question!
All teams meet at Dodger Stadium by 2 pm on Saturday, Dec. 4. A scavenger hunt list with 100 items will be distributed. Each item is worth a certain number of points. The team with the most points wins the grand prize. Forty of the items are material goods that the Union Rescue Mission, L.A. Food Bank and L.A. Burrito Project need.
For example: cans of foods, socks, or dry food like rice and pasta. The other sixty items are what make the Scavenger Hunt so memorable. They won’t be revealed until the day of the event, but you can get an idea of what they might be like from viewing the Scavenger Hunt guide.
Some of the items are ridiculous, but they’re all a lot of fun. Teams scatter and scavenge and meet back at Dodger Stadium at 8 pm with all their items. Items and points will be tallied and the winners will be announced on Tuesday, Dec. 7, on lascavengerhunt.com. The Grand Prize is a trip to Barcelona to attend the Primavera Sound festival in May 2011.
After the teams have returned and all scavenger hunt items have been tallied, please join us for the afterpary at TheSex with Har Mar Superstar and “Special Secret Brazilian Guests”. We look forward to seeing you at Dodger Stadium on Saturday. Bring sunglasses, a few bucks for a stop at Taco Zone on Alvarado, and your PMA!
According to Graham Williams at Transmission Entertainment there could’ve been no better way to kick off Austin’s 4th Annual FUN FUN FUN Fest than with the 1st Annual Scavenger Hunt around town. AT NIGHT!
More than 200 hunters comprising some 46 teams (that’s right, forty-six) took to the streets in search of several easy to find (and some not so easy) scavenger items. From all reports it was a rock solid primer for the FUNFUNFUNfest yet to come, Nov. 7th & 8Th. It’s not too late to fire up that last minute road trip to Austin. Enjoy more Flickr photos.
Transmission Entertainment, FYFFest Productions & Incase Present
The First Annual FUNFUNFUNfest Scavenger Hunt
Saturday, October 24th, 2009
Sign Up 6PM @ Red 7
Hunt begins 7PM
As if managing a zillion bands (including DANZIG!) on four stages in front of an estimated 16,000-to-20,000 fans for two days straight wasn’t already enough of a challenge, the folks at Austin’s Transmission Entertainment have decided to add yet another piece to the ever expanding FUNFUNFUNfest puzzle—A SCAVENGER HUNT to benefit the non-profit organization Caritas of Austin.
But this will not be any old hunt. They’ve brought in Sean Carlson to run it. Bonkers. If this one is anything like Sean’s annual LA Scavenger Hunt, it’ll be total insanity and extremely funny. If your team wins, you’ll score all sorts of legit prizes, including tickets to FUNFUNFUNfest on November 7 & 8th + a box of Incase gear with your name on it awaiting pick up in the VIP lurker lounge. Good luck. We’ll see you in Austin!
