Description

It's time for the next scavenger hunt!

We'll meet up outside at the Hirshhorn Museum & Sculpture Garden at 2pm. Please be ON TIME! I'll be the one with a red flag (1 foot x 1 foot in size) with the word "ACK" on it. If you've done one of our scavenger hunts before, you'll know we get a fresh set of clues / questions each and every hunt. We will check in, get the teams together, distribute hunt materials, and review rules and guidelines. The teams disperseand the 2-hour hunt begins starting at 2:30pm. Teams will have until 4:30pm to decipher the clues and solve the riddles. The hunt will take us through numerous exhibits, collections, and artifacts!

At 4:30pm we will collect the results, score each team, and announce the winner. A pair of movie tickets will be awarded to each member of the winning team!

Following the hunt, we will adjourn to a nearby spot for food, drinks, and a recap of the afternoon!

If you haven't been there before, the Hirshhorn Museum & Sculpture Garden is an art museum beside the National Mall. It was conceived as the United States' museum of contemporary and modern art and currently focuses its collection-building and exhibition-planning mainly on the post–World War II period, with particular emphasis on art made during the last 50 years. The building itself is an attraction, an open cylinder elevated on four massive "legs," with a large fountain occupying the central courtyard.!

Please note the event ticket price goes towards the contracting company we hire to devise the scavenger hunt package, to include questions, answer key, and rules, as well as prizes for the winning team. Any remainder goes towards our Meetup group fees and expenses.

We've got an early bird special for this event of only $20 (the price of 2 cocktails at many lounges / clubs)! The first 45 paid sign-ups, or those who pay by Sun. Sept. 24th (whichever comes first) get the early bird price! After that, the ticket price will go to $25. To make payment, please follow the steps in the Payment section of the event posting.

I hope to see you there!

METRO & PARKING

The closest Metro is L'Enfant Plaza (Orange, Blue, Silver, Yellow, Green lines). I suggest Metro / cabbing / Uber'ing if you can. I also recommend using wmata.com for travel planning. Don't forget to account for Metro, traffic, and parking delays. If you are driving, you will need to find street parking or a garage. I recommend using parkopedia.com for garage parking planning.

EVENT CHECK-IN

Please be on time. If you are late (arrive after the start time of 2pm), you risk the possibility of not being able to join us for the event. I will have a master list of all those that have paid. It’s not required, but I recommend printing out your payment confirmation email as a backup (if you are not on the list, you will be required to show it). When you check-in, your RSVP will be listed under the name of the PayPal or credit card account used to make payment. Typically, this is your LEGAL name as shown on your driver's license. Sometimes, it may be under a company name if you set up your PayPal or credit card account that way. If you are not sure what it is, please log into your PayPal account (it will say "Welcome, [your account name]" at the top) or your credit card account to find out. If you are RSVP'd under someone else's payment, please use that name for check-in.

REFUND POLICY

Since this event is paid for in advance, all sales are final unless the event is canceled or rescheduled. If the event is canceled or rescheduled, an UPDATE will be posted at the top of the event posting, and the UPDATE will also be sent as an email to the yes RSVPs. A full refund will be submitted no later than Wednesday of the following week. For rescheduled events, you must let me know within 3 calendar days of the UPDATE email if you are unable to make the new date... no refunds will be given after that time. Thanks for understanding. =)

TICKET RESELL / TRANSFER

Similar to a concert ticket or a football game ticket, you are free to sell / transfer your ticket to someone else if you are unable to attend. Work out any payment between yourselves, and have the seller only send me (the organizer) a message letting me know the first AND last name, and Meetup profile URL (if a member) of the person taking your spot (please also copy them on the message). To obtain their Meetup profile URL, go to their profile from the mobile website or your computer (not the app), and copy & paste the URL from your browser. I host a lot of events and groups, so please let me know the event name and group name the ticket transfer is for. You must let me know by the RSVP close time of 11am on the day of the event.

WEATHER

Should inclement weather (e.g. snow storm, hurricane, etc.) affect our event, we'll need to reschedule or cancel. If any one of the following is not available for service due to inclement weather, we'll need to do so: Metrorail is not running to all stops; Uber (X, SUV, etc.) is not running or available at no more than 2x standard rates; venue(s) are not open. I'll post an UPDATE to the top of the event posting by 11:30am on the day of our event with the details.

RAIN POLICY

If it's light rain, we're still on. If there's lightning, we'll need to reschedule or cancel. Hopefully, if there is precipitation, it will just be a quick passing "summer" rain. If it looks like there might be possible rain, I'll post an update by 11:30am the day of the event. If we cancel or reschedule, and you are unable to make the new date, you will get a full refund (please see "Refund Policy" section of the event posting for full details).

SPECIAL NEEDS

If you have any special needs (e.g. wheelchair, dietary for events with food included, etc.), let me know in advance (a week or more before the event) and I will do my best to accommodate (message me through my Meetup profile, do NOT comment on the event posting). If you let me know the day of the event, I cannot guarantee that I will be able to help. Thank you for understanding and I appreciate the courtesy of a heads up!
