IVS Selfie Scavenger Hunt!

04/11/2020 11:14 AM | Roland Savoie (Administrator)

While we are all self-quarantining – we can still have fun!  When you are out on your training runs – snap a selfie according to the below list.  Once you have gotten as many as you can – post as an album on the IVS Facebook page with the hashtag #IVSHunt

You can post your pics at any time but the contest will close at midnight on May 16th.  

The person with the most selfies with the correct items/directions will win!  What will you win?  That is still to be determined – but it will be FABULOUS!


1.   OBEY THE LAW at All Times.
2.   Do not enter private property. If you need to ask a neighbor for an item or permission to take picture, do so.  If/when talking or interacting with strangers, business owners, or community workers, all participants must be polite and respectful.
3.   Play fair. Remember it’s all in good fun and there is no need to ruin someone’s good time.
4.   Do not take a photo of two items together. They must be in separate pictures.
5.   Each photo counts for one point.  Multiple pictures of the same item does not count.  Multiple pictures of the same directive do not count.
6.   Pictures need to be numbered with the corresponding item/directive.
7.   All pictures must be taken while doing your run/training.
8.   Pictures without the above criteria will be disqualified.
9.   The decision of the Judge is final.
