Our long national nightmare is (nearly) over!

(Before anyone blows a gasket, "nightmare" is a reference to the 22-month long campaign!) It’s finally election week. Get a shot of your scooter with election paraphernalia.

2 pts – your scooter with a campaign yard-sign.

+1 pt – each additional yard-sign for a different candidate (up to a total of 5 additional signs)

+1 pt – you are in the photo

+2 pt – you are wearing a shirt or hat for a candidate

+2 pts – there is a political candidate billboard in the photo

At ericalm's suggestion, I'm adding:

+2 pts -- you have an I VOTED sticker in the photo

(Eric suggested adding points for taking the pic in front of an official voting site, but most states prohibit posting signs, etc. within 200/300 ft., so I'm leaving that one out.)

All the material should be for candidates in the current election cycle. (Don’t go digging that old McGovern t-shirt out of your closet.) If you take your picture AFTER Tuesday, you can gather up a bunch of signs littering the roadside and use them as props. Consider it an act of community service.

You have until midnight, Sunday, November 9 to post your photo.

NOTE: This is my 4th week to "run" this hunt, and I have an idea for one more. Should I do it, or is it time to hand off to someone new? Either way works for me.

One more recap of the rules:

-A new photo subject added every Sunday. Participants will have until the following Sunday at midnight to post their pic (TAKEN THAT WEEK) .
-Only one photo may be submitted by each member for each week’s subject. (But if you get a better pic later in the week, PLEASE edit your original post to note that you posted a better pic and note in the newer post that it is a replacement for a previous pic.)
-Old photos you have lying around can NOT be used- they must be NEW photos taken the week the photo subject was posted
-No Photoshop submissions
-Prize? Sure, if we can figure out a way to do that, but the real prize will be bragging rights & all the fun we all had. Also, it's become something of a tradition that the winner gets to be the huntmeister for the next round of photos.

I can see the crap hitting the fan on this one.

I'm going to just advise that everyone do their best to keep this free of any political statements or commentary. I have no yard signs but my neighbors do and I have no reservations about using photos of the signs of candidates I don't support.

So, photos good. Political comments or demonstrations, bad.

Since I don't want to have to lock a scavenger hunt thread, I may take a more active stance in editing any comments that violate the posting guidelines.

Cool?

One presumes the nightmare referred to is the incredibly long political season, which for tuesday's election started years ago.
It must be wearying for voters of all political inclinations.
I know I for one am fatigued by the whole thing. Snore
I want to watch beer commercials for a change.

Please note that this phrase was referring to the VERY long campaign season. If this "hunt" turns out to be something that makes people crazy, I'll just delete the whole thing. Please take it in the spirit in which it was offered -- I don't care whose signs you use.

That's what I thought ... but ya never know. Wink Not sure which is worse: long campaigns or Christmas merchandise in October?

Can I get a million points if I can get a pic of my scoot in a voting booth?

OK, I have to ask. Must it be a yard sign? Or can it be the signs posted on street corners?

I need to know how many houses I need to, umm, visit tonight. Visit, yeah that's it!

Visiting your local street corners to "divest" them of the post-election leftovers would likely be considered a public service! Wink

Though always happy to perform a public service <grin>, the question was serious. Can the picture be on a street corner? Or does it need to be what is obviously someone's yard?

It's very cold here in Southern Oregon on Election Day - last night it snowed in the local mountains and today it's been cold, in the low 40's with bouts of rain and wind, good weather to bundle up if one is out and about and scooting hither and thither...which I did for this week's Scavenger Hunt, over in neighboring Ashland where a bunch of local races have prompted wholesale sprouting of different campaigns signs etc

Here's my scoring - 2 Pts for my scooter with a campagin yard sign (in this case, Chris Walker running for local County Clerk) - 3 additional Pts for yard signs for 3 more different candidates (Chris Walker's opponent Colleen Roberts, and Joe Charter and Tim Barnack) - 1 more point for me being in the photo! - another 2 Pts for my T-shirt which shows a Photo of the Candidate of my choice as well as his name! - 2 more points for the Billboard, just behind my scooter, for local football announcer Pete Belcastro who's running for office - and a final 2 Pts for the "I Voted" sticker which I am holding up (confession - the sticker was too tiny to be seen so I printed a larger more visible version of same).....for a grand Election Day Total of..... 12 Pts !

I hope the Election Day weather is treating the rest of you fellow Scooteristas decently but back here in Oregon it's time to put another log in the wood stove, break out the Hot Toddy's....and begin some unspecified but inventive celebrations of the democratic voting process.

GO (candidate-of-your-choice)!

Sorry I didn't answer your question quickly, Syd. Yes, you can take your pic on a street corner. The signs are the important factor.

Thanks Miguel! Yeah, record temps here in Chicago right now, we are really enjoying it. It's like September here! We road around until about noon after standing in line at 5am to vote. We made our way down to the Loop finding a good place to park our scooters then walked into Grant Park. Photos and video on our web site now.

I'm not sure I'll have time to do a picture this week. But I did snap this one on election day!

I thought it was cute ^_^

Hey OK Bubbles - I think you should run ONE MORE WEEK of your Scavenger Hunts - because you've been a fine HuntMaster - and I for one would like to see what ingenious idea you have for us next....

That's my Vote (GO Bubbles!)

No more hunts? Sad

I guess it's getting to be a bad season for most people. Confused

We could give points for garage pics! +1 for every layer of clothing you are wearing Wink

Has anyone heard from OKBubbles lately? I posted a week or so ago asking her if she would follow-up and *do* the last (and 5th week) Scavenger Hunt which she said she had an idea for....but I haven't heard back from her. I even sent her a PM a few days ago.....with no reply.

So....if you are reading this, OKBubbles....I hope you are a) Okay..... and b) willing to come back and do that last 5th Week Hunt that you talked about doing.

Are you?

Please let us know.....we (some of us at least) miss you.

Miguel

P.S. If OKBubbles isn't reading this....has anyone else either heard from her or been in touch with her?

Hey Miguel,

Looks like OK Bubbles isn't OK. Hope we hear from her soon, maybe we should just figure out our own scavenger hunt, I propose that we do a tribute scavenger hunt to the big 3 auto makers, maybe a wrecking yard where you get points for GM, Ford and Chrysler products with your scooter in the shot. 1 point for each visible big 3 autos. Seems like the wrecking yards are mostly full of domestic sleds so one would have the chance to score thousands of points, of course this hunt needs to be refined but it is a start.

Feel free to start a hunt of your own! Obviously, the further away from summer we get, the less attendance. But you're more than welcome to make up your own game. Very Happy
