The bicycle photo scavenger hunt and cookout that took place on May 15 was pure fun.  SORBA-Chattanooga members and their guest started showing up at the start/finish location about 15 minutes before the start of the event.  After a quick of review of the rules, a list of items were distributed to each team.   The items the teams were supposed to photograph ran from old year books to scantly clad sculptures, from cannons to a team member in the back of a police car (without being place under arrest).

Each team had about two and a half hours to photograph items on the list.   When the points were tallied the team consisting of Amy Phillips and Erik Rippon won by nine points.

Following the scavenger hunt participants were treated to a cookout featuring hamburgers, chicken and hot dogs.  Based on the positive comments the scavenger hunt could very well turn into an annual event.

SORBA-Chattanooga would like to thank Mike Najjar who hosted the cookout in his condo.  Thanks Mike!

    This was great fun. I only wish we had more people and more time. Thanks, Mike. When is breakfast?

    Just under 20 was a respectful turnout given it fell on the same weekend as Dirt, Sweat and Gears and the Tour De Cure. I suspect that it will be double or triple that number if we are more careful to set it on a less busy weekend.

    I am regretting not being there for this one. Sounds like it was a blast. The tour de cure was nice though, good to change it up now and then.
