    There is a scavenger hunt at the U.Oregon campus tonight between 6 and 8pm. I thought I'd mention it in case anyone else is around the Eugene area.

    I hope I win the new iPad2 or a t-shirt.

    So I was the first person to officially finish this hunt, but someone was allowed to start twenty minutes before the posted start time. Why cant some folks play by the rules. Anyways, I didnt win an ipad2, but I did win $100 cash. My first ever winnings hunt-wise.

    Congratulations! Maybe hunts can be profitable after all. I hope you enjoyed it.

    Thanks Knocka. My hopes of getting a free iPad might be realized. Last week I mentioned the SCVNGR hunt where I failed to win a car. That was only 6 months ago. I hadn't thought to check the app on my mobile since then, but last tuesday I noticed the app had a modification called 'rewards' and so I took a moment to see what kind of freebies might be near my location. It said there were three different iPad drawings at the mall across the street, so I went over and quickly scored the points necessary to get entered. I looked to see if any other registered users were playing and apparently I was the only person to even try. The drawing just ended yesterday. If there were no other entries, then in a few days I hope to see an email saying I've won all three. It's seems too easy, too flawed, and too unreal to believe...we'll see.

    So I had my hopes up that I'd win the three iPads but I didn't get an affirmative email. I continue to have my doubts about SCVNGR. I assumed the expense of giving away an iPad would fit a single movie theater in terms of overall advertising potential, although I suppose the entire theater chain could be super cheap and apply the giveaway to the broad field of ALL theaters. I never saw any specifications or rules for this reward challenge so I could be wrong to assume anything.

    I am NOT a fan of SCVNGR hunts/ technology. Oh how I can count the reasons. It is not a level playing field to start on so many well, levels.

    So no SCVNGRwinnings for me. I learned that the prize pool was shared across the nation with all theater and mall locations. No where was that specified going into the individual rewards per location. Lame. During this experience I came up with some major ideas to improve their system and marketing but I haven't the inclination to jump through all the hoops it would take to effect change let alone be taken seriously. I expect a whole team of paid software designers have already pondered such things.
