The time is nearly upon us. The hunt will begin at 9am tomorrow morning! Read this email very carefully, it contains everything you\’ll need to know!
The list will be released in two stages: firstly at 9am, it can be obtained from the judges outside Great St. Mary\’s church in the centre of town, right opposite the Senate House, secondly it will be placed on the website and emailed to the contact we have in each team at 10am. That\’s one whole vital hour you could gain by coming to see us lovely judges! When you get it, you\’ll note that items have again been organised into small categories – this will function the same as last year – completing a category will earn you one bonus point per item in that category.
Since you have quite considerable time to obtain things on the list, and from experience, the judges will only be available during certain periods for you to bring them things. The schedule is below. The Caius MCR is a small room in the main Caius site: as you enter the college, turn immediately right and follow the path around the court until you go down some steps and through a small tunnel, continue along that path until you reach the corner and the MCR is just on your right. The Caius JCR is very close by, just continue following the path around the court and there are two sets of double doors into a large undercroft hallway, the JCR is clearly labelled on the left as you enter. The Department of Genetics is on the Downing Site, and is best found following this map: http://tinyurl.com/yzqfsg. If you can\’t find the site itself, use this map: http://tinyurl.com/ypux9b. When you get there, ask reception for Chris Field and I\’ll come to see you.
PLEASE be aware that in Caius there may be exams going on, if not people revising, so try to avoid making excessive noise. If for some reason we should be removed from either the MCR or JCR, we\’ll try to find somewhere nearby and let you know as soon as possible where that is.

Outside of these times you can of course email us, this is encouraged! Especially if you have photo/video items that we can look at from work or home. If you\’re really desperate to show us something and we\’re not officially around, then you could email and be asked to trek miles outside of town to where we live. So you don\’t want to do that, ok?
Rules and Queries
The rules are as written on the website. PLEASE make sure you have read them. PLEASE also make sure that you don\’t get into any trouble during the event – don\’t aggrevate the public, fellows, college staff, fellow students and especially the police.
If, and undoubtedly you will, you have any queries about items on the list, then email us, we\’ll respond as swiftly as we can. Be aware that some are deliberately cryptic or open to interpretation, so we might not tell you much about those! We hope to be continuously updating the website, but we have work to do too sadly, so much of it may have to wait until you\’ve all finished and we can count up scores.
Have fun! We hope to meet you all in person and then when it\’s all over, go down the pub or something. We\’d have arranged a party or something, but we really had not expected this overwhelming response! Thanks to you all for taking part, I can only hope you\’ll say the same to us on Wednesday evening!
GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!
