Scavenger Hunt List 2010

The Judges will be in the Mountbatten room of the Union for judging items, this will be sign posted from the Union entrance and is next to the bar. Ask the nice people at reception if the inner door is locked! Directions to the Union can be found at www.cus.org. Judging will be from 10am to 10.30pm on Wednesday, resume at 9am Thursday and stop at 9pm Thursday evening. The results will be announced soon afterwards (when everything is tallied).

Maximum points available are next to each item, each of these is down to the judges discretion and you may not get them all! Bonus points may be awarded if you particularly impress us.

Please bring along video/picture evidence on a USB, or if you cant, send them to cambridgescavengers@gmail.com

Check the website regularly for updates. Happy hunting!
