Who’s Up For A Fremont ‘Hood Hunt?

By master · January 13th, 2011 · 1 Comment

Fremonsters who watch The Amazing Race and think to themselves “I’d love to do this but I’m too lazy to actually leave my neighborhood” are in for a treat. The ‘Hood Hunt is coming to Fremont Park.

The ‘Hood Hunts are a series of map-based scavenger hunts, held in various neighborhoods in the Seattle area.  This is a grassroots effort, where the participants take turns “hosting” each hunt, so we try to keep these as simple as possible, for both participants and our volunteer hosts.

Here’s how it works: Show up at the suggested meeting time and location, and bring a copy of the map & questions (provided on the specific event page). Each neighborhood map covers about a half square mile and contains twenty checkpoints. Find as many checkpoints as you wish, and return to the finish. Afterwards, we’ll find a place to hang out and share our routes, stories, and votes for our favorite checkpoint locations.

The next ‘Hood Hunt kicks off at the Ross Playground (4320 4th Ave. NW) on Monday, February, 21 at 5:30 p.m. This is actually the second Fremont-area ‘Hood Hunt in the last few months. You can see the map and clues from the previous version here to get a feel for what you’ll be looking for.

Keep an eye on this page for the map and questions specific to this hunt.

There is no fee to participate so if you’re available and want a good reason to run around Fremont like a lunatic, here’s your chance. As if you needed a reason…
