Just 24 hours until this year\’s Scavenger Hunt kicks off! The judges will be in front of Great St. Mary\’s tomorrow morning at 9AM, handing out hard copies of the list. Wear something yellow! Then come find us during the rest of the day at the Graduate Union on Mill Lane to claim your items.
As mentioned in the previous blog post, if you can\’t be there, the list will be made available online at 10AM. We encourage all teams to keep an eye on the Twitter feed, either by following it or just using the widget here on the right hand side of the site. We will be tweeting updates, items brought to us that particularly impressed us, as well as bonus items that won\’t be on the list!
For those curious, here\’s the proposed timeline for this year\’s Scavenger Hunt.
Wednesday 11th June:
9.00 a.m.: Collect the list from the judges, who will be stood outside Great St. Mary\’s church. Show up wearing something yellow.
10.00 a.m.: The list goes up online. We’ll post it here and on Twitter too.
10.00 a.m. to 9.00 p.m.: We’ll be in the Graduate Union, waiting for you to come find us, and dazzle us with your wonderful items.
Thursday 12th June:
9.00 a.m. to 9.00 p.m.: We’ll be in the Graduate Union again.
9.00 p.m.: Doors close. If there\’s an item in the room before 9, it\’ll be judged, regardless of how long it takes.
Later that evening: Results! We’ll publish the results on the blog and on Twitter as soon as we can.
As always, however, things are subject to change. Be sure to keep an eye on this website and our Twitter feed during the hunt for any sudden changes! We also now have a Facebook Event for those of you who want to make your participation public (please do, and tell all your friends!)
Time passes so quickly in Cambridge. It\’s time to once again prepare for a memorable 36 hours (described by one participant as \’the most fun I\’ve ever had sober\’), where you will scavenge for items, do silly activities you never thought you\’d find yourself doing, and generally enjoy yourselves in the Cambridge sun.
This year, CUSH 2014 will be running from 9AM on Wednesday 11th June until 9PM on Thursday 12th June.
As usual, teams can be made up of up to five people. To register in advance, send an email to adr34 with your team name, the name of the members of your team and, ideally, a team photo. The list of items will be handed out in person in front of Great St. Mary\’s at 9AM on Wednesday, where you will also be able to register on the day. The list will be posted online shortly thereafter for any teams unable to be there in person.
As is tradition, last year\’s (narrow) winners, the AP Allstars, are in charge this year. They\’ve been preparing all year, and are thoroughly looking forward to being impressed by you all!
We hope everyone had fun during the Scavenger Hunt, and we want to see you all again, so we\’re having a pub meet! It will be on the 16th (this Sunday) at 7pm in the Granta (near Darwin college). Hope to see lots of you there!
