I know what LED pants are (I'm good at using a search engine :) ). I was confused because points had been given for "homemade" options. I think only one post had actual LED pants (the one with the little boy...and even those might have been glo stick necklaces lol). It looks like points have been given to any homemade options at this point so.... I guess it is what it is.
Gotcha! I misunderstood the question.
Honestly I haven't had the ability to look too closely at each item, mainly the ones marked in red, and to check if anyone has had questions. I can go back and take a look to see.

It was a tough search this year, and the items weren't too clear. I'll see if I can get better items for next year's. If I couldn't get a description out of the co-worker who submitted it, I kinda just had to wing it this year with lwmjr. Props to lwmjr for being ontop of everything, such a rockstar! 8)
Yes, definate thanks to lwmjr and you for doing this each year!!!
A huge thank you to everyone involved in this. It is always so much fun whether I am actually participating or just following along with everyone.

For #43 the neon sign mine has a red box on the tally spreadsheet, but it is the same sign that another person had posted on page 2.
yep, seems you are right about that.
Just here to have fun, keep the bad guys out, and give the stray dogs a place to stay

If you can't tell by the paint splattered on my nose in my final pic, I have had a very busy week moving and painting :lol: Excited to get my free t-shirt and congrats to all the winners!!! Also props to Hazel and lw for keeping track of things! Looking forward to next year already :mrgreen:
The best I can give you is a fake smile and dead eyes.

It’s one thing not to want something; it’s another to be told you can’t have it.

Same here! I always have a blast doing this with my family and seeing everyone's creativity in their interpretations of the different items. One of my favorites is still "6 rocks stacked on top of each other" and someone stacked 6 Dwayne Johnson figures!! :lol: :lol: :lol: Not to mention the fact that I still can't pass a Tesla, phone booth or a wood paneled station wagon without the slight urge to snap a pic with it :lol:

Thanks again to everyone who helps put this on each year, it is a highlight to our fall! Congrats to all of the winners!! Great job!!!

Oh, it's fine. I know you guys are probably busy with all kinds of this and that. There's always different ways certain items can be taken (like that one year with the "Stack of rocks" and the one guy used a stack of some wrestling guy named Rock or whatever). Just think similar items should be accepted equally.

Thanks for this hunt year after year, it's a blast!, and thanks to all who have to painstakingly go through photo-by-photo and line-by-line of that spreadsheet. :)

LOL Funny you mentioned the rocks, because that came to mind for me too and was put in my post.

Yup, same here! Between work and my silly car breaking every five minutes, I didn't even get to 50 this year. But I still have a chance at a golden shirt, so all is good!

Looking forward to next year when I'll hopefully have a functioning car and to see what crazy things the staff come up with. Thanks to Hazel and lwmjr for being on top of everything and running the hunt this year! And congrats in advance to all of the winners! I really enjoyed seeing all of your pics!

Thanks again for putting on the hunt! To all the organizers and hunters - thanks, we had so much fun. :)

And jmbohler... you beat us by a few hours! Last year it was only a few days. So close! But hey, 2nd is great. We'll see what next year brings.

Just as a heads up, I was given the go-ahead to draw 3 names instead of just 1 for the golden tshirt raffle this year. Once the order for all the golden shirts makes it in, 3 of you are gonna get a surprise! 8)
