Grave Hop Road Rally Results

Grave HopA total of 14 four-person teams participated in the Grave Hop Road Rally on Saturday, November 15. This was the first time that L Frank and I hosted this type of event. We had so much fun planning for the road rally, and then hearing about your adventures and seeing your "scavenger hunt" photographs!
All of the teams left from the breakfast event (GC5FJQB) at 7:30 am and had five hours to complete the rally. Each team was give the coordinates to the starting points of 14 different tasks within 10 different cemeteries, each team starting with a different task. Each team also had a list of items to find in the cemeteries that would earn them bonus points. To earn points for the tasks and bonus items, the teams had to photograph all four teammates completing a task or standing next to a bonus item. (Any part of the team members' bodies was acceptable!) Eight teams completed all the tasks, but only four of those teams came up with all the correct answers!


Here are the results:
1st Place = Team # 9 - Swelgus, WadeLori, Kimberteacher, Moonchild1800 - 4405 points
2nd Place = Team # 14 - SGTMTA, Rogbarn, Nan-d1955 - 4115 points
