The Nash 500! 2015
« on: April 16, 2015, 12:13:38 PM »
The Nash 500!!!

What: The Nash 500!
Initial meeting place: Parking lot of Aeon Mall in Kofu Showa, Lot A.
When: Sunday, May 10th, 9:30am
Cost: It is FREE, but you will need to split the cost of any gas or tolls used with your fellow teammates.

The Nash 500 is a prefecture-wide scavenger hunt that gets participants to explore Yamanashi. Participants gather into teams and drive around the prefecture visiting various famous landmarks, buildings and interesting areas to collect pictures and complete tasks. They will dress up in costumes and do various challenges all over the prefecture! But be sure to complete the tasks within the time limits and meet back at the desginated meeting points.

If you'd like to join:
First, create your own team and post it here!  You can have as many teammates as will legally fit in your car.  Usually this is 4-5 people.
Then, choose your theme together.  Examples of team themes in years past are Dukes of Hokentucky (Dukes of Hazzard costume and decorated car), Go Go Totoro (My Neighbor Totoro costumes and car), Rainbow Racers (Mario Kart theme). You can choose any theme and costumes but you WILL BE JUDGED ON APPEARANCE so choose wisely! 
Next, post your teammates names and team name here!
Last, Show up!

The hunt organizers will distribute the clue sheets for the morning's tasks at 9:40am sharp, at which point you're free to get started. Check-in points and times will be detailed in the materials distributed at the start, this will include the morning tasks. The morning tasks are to be completed before the lunch time deadline. We will all meet again at lunch time and you will be given a second set of tasks to complete before dinner time.

At least one person in your group has to bring a camera (preferably one that can also record videos) with a removable memory card!

The hunt will end at roughly dinner time at a location to be disclosed, at which point we will tally points and distribute awards and prizes while everyone eats dinner. Points will also be given for costumes and the manner in which you complete the tasks!

We will also announce the results of voting for the next year's YETI council at this time!

Get to planning!  Post here or on the Facebook event page when you know your team!  If you do not know who you wish to be teamed up with but want to participate, please let us know so we can hook you up! Remember, at least one person in your team must own/rent a car to participate. This event requires one driver and car for each team.

Finally, we are looking for judges to help assist with this event! If you are interested, please let one of the council members know!
