List Three!

The third and final list is below…and it’s a doozy!  You all thought I was kidding, didn’t you?  This is a challenging scavenger hunt!!

List Two


Hey, Hunters! 

What a nice day to be out making memories!  Today’s list takes you all some interesting places, and I can’t wait to see the resulting pictures!


Review the previous posts regarding rules and instructions…lots of reminders!  Don’t lose points because you didn’t read closely!  And don’t forget your mandatory tasks!

Let the games begin!


Welcome to the 3rd “Annual” Boyd County Senior Scavenger Hunt!  It’s going to be a fun few days, and I am really pleased that you have decided to join in.  Teams may turn in paperwork until Monday, August 22 at 3:30PM, if they wish to join late.  Other teams will get a bit of a head start, but in the long run, it won’t hurt your chances of winning.  For the next three days, I will release a list of tasks.  Those tasks do not have to all be completed that day…you can work on each list all week. The lists will be posted here on the blog.  Let me know if you need clarification about any of the tasks or the instructions.  READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS!!!  Today’s list is below.  You will find tasks for each point value.  Refer to your rule sheet for how and where to send your pictures.  Videos links should be emailed to christy.ford@boyd.kyschools.us


One added challenge:  to be eligible for one of the top three positions, a team must complete several mandatory tasks.  They will be marked with an asterisk (*) as the lists are released.  To win, you must have each starred task completed and among your submitted photos/videos.  Also, don’t forget that at least two team members must appear in each picture!  No team members, no points! 


If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask them.  If you have really great pics as you play, share them!  Give us a mention @boydcounty17 or @missford306  and #BCHSHunt17

Task #1 and yogile folders


1.  Get your packets to Mr. Rice before 7th period today!

2.  You will be sharing photos to an online folder at yogile.com set up for your team.  You may email a picture or upload a picture to the site.  Both options are easy and available to you on your smartphones.  Your team will upload to your personalized account.  The account will be formatted www.yogile.com/yourteamname and your email address is yourteamname@yogile.com 

If you had special characters in your team name, they have been omitted because they were not recognized.  So, if you used a #, just leave it off when typing in your team name after the slash.  If you used a character instead of a letter (ca$h), then you will just use the letter (cash). Let me know if you can't figure this out. 

3.  Your first task is to have a team member email or upload a picture of your team name to your yogile folder.  I will give each team 10 points for completing this task.  

4. The first list will be posted as a blog post at this website at 3:25 PM.  Get ready!
