Tay and I have been hard at work preparing for the upcoming treasure hunt. We've let very little out about it, and this is certainly for a purpose.
First off, we're somewhat behind schedule, and don't know a whole ton ourselves. We're just moving out of the planning stages on a number of issues. This hunt will be more complex and hopefully more substantial than any of the first six hunts. There will be multiple hunts, with different objectives, interweaving and going on at the same time, teams will be clashing and competing more directly against one another, and your course will be constantly changing as you progress through the hunt. This hunt borrows some of the best of all the hunts while throwing in a great deal of originality. Needless to say, we have a lot of work to do before July 11.
Secondly, this hunt involves a great deal of secrecy. As you may have guessed (or as we may have told some of you), the hunt will have a spy/secret agent theme. Cunning, deception, and sabotage will be not only present but even central to success. From our list of participants, we will try to establish even teams, but also groups of established friends. Beware, however, as backstabbing and treachery will be around every corner, and you may find yourself mistrusting even those you thought to be your teammates.
We hope to have a meeting with our captains this weekend to figure out the final component of the hunt necessary to putting the teams together. We will be contacting the captains on the night of the 9th to reveal who they will be working with. You will all find out what team you are on and be given a more extensive briefing of your particular role within this hunt at 5:00 p.m. on the 11th at a briefing at Tay's house.
