Midnight Madness Scavenger Hunt

In February, we attended a scavenger hunt and had a great time.  The same master minds behind that scavenger hunt planned another for June.  This time we wised up and asked Todd to join our team.  Last time, all the clues were posted on poles at the clue location, but this time they made it more challenging.  One of the clues was in the song being played by this guy on the Galloway trail.  We almost missed them since we weren't exactly looking for people!
 The highlight, or low point depending on your perspective, was having to karaoke before getting the next clue.  See how I cleverly removed myself in order to take a picture?  I have never ever done karaoke, and hadn't really planned to.  Thankfully, Todd and David saved us by singing Time Warp from the Rocky Horror Picture Show.
 Eventually, we did reach a clue posted on a pole like the first hunt.  This clue asked us to take a picture with an emergency vehicle.
 The EMTs at the nearby ambulance barn were really good sports, even joining in the picture.  Sorry about the blur - we were in a hurry!
 Last time, we came in next to last.  This time, we took THIRD place!  The prize was a very useful package of toilet paper.
 The race ended at a bowling alley, which made me very happy.  I've been wanting to go bowling for a long time.  I wasn't prepared and didn't have on socks, but guess what they sell in a vending machine at the bowling alley - socks! :)
 For a while, I was winning - even beating David.  It didn't last, and I ended up losing badly, but it was a great time!
 Melissa's two brothers-in-laws did a great job of planning the scavenger hunt.  It must have been a lot of work, but I think everyone had fun.
 Check out that form!  I've got to find a way to secretly practice so that maybe I can beat David next time.  Shhhh!

Very clever!
I knew David could sing but
didn't know he was a bowler!
Cute picture of you & Melissa.
