FLL Danger Run Results – Northside’s Spring 2015 Team

And we are back with another recap of the FLL Danger Run.  In this edition, Scott and David from Northside took their turn on the Danger Run.  As their host, I will have to say that their run has been the most dangerous of them all!  So on to the results.

Just to recap, the previous 2 Northside teams rolled in these results: Adults 88%, Teens 85.4%.

So, how did Scott and David do?  Well, this isn’t a singing contest so right to the results: 92.6%! (50/54)  And where does that rank them in terms of total scores: First Place!
Northside (Scott/David) – 92.6%
Northside Adults – 88%
Will P – 86.9%
Northside Teens – 85.4%
Dan R – 82.6%
Alyssa R – 80.4%
Dei C – 80.4%
Sarah P – 78.3%
Abbey C – 78.3%
Alan P – 39.1%

So how did they do it?  Well, here were some of the keys to victory.

  • First, they got outside the city!  Yep, that’s right.  It appears that 5 days in the villages of India will indeed help you see a lot things that will get you a victory.  It also turns out that some of those things are not the most pleasant (like no public toilets)!
  • Second, they got creative.  You will notice that their hunt had 54 items, which is more than any other.  Nothing in the rules state that you cannot add something memorable.  It should also be noted that your host declined a number of items they wanted to add!  No, you cannot get extra credit for a Sadu walking his pet monkey on a rope.
  • Third, they worked as a team.  You want the glory…then you are gonna have to share it!
  • Fourth, they got lucky.  I mean, this team pulled off the rare inside the park homerun: scootie with training wheels, bicycle carpool, the unfortunate #2 sighting, and 3 different colors of sparkly sweater vests.  BOOM!

That’s all from this edition of the FLL Danger Run.  Good luck to all the next contestants!

FLL Danger Run results – Northside edition

For the first week of November, 2 teams from Northside Baptist in Rock Hill, SC, took their turns at the FLL Danger Run.  They decided to break up into 2 teams: adults and teenagers.  After the judges review of all the score sheets, here are the results:

Adults – 88% (44/50)
Teenagers – 85.4% (41/48)

Being that there are not a whole lot of rules for the FLL Danger Run, the adults decided to add 2 new animal items to the list, snake and donkey, which made their percentage of victory higher.  However, even without these 2 additions, they still would have beaten the teenagers by 1!

Credit to both teams for being the first to find the “carpool” entry.  It was this discovery that now puts the Adult team in 1st place overall.  Congrats to both teams for a well played Danger Run.

Northside Adults – 88%
Will P – 86.9%
Northside Teens – 85.4%
Dan R – 82.6%
Alyssa R – 80.4%
Dei C – 80.4%
Sarah P – 78.3%
Abbey C – 78.3%
Alan P – 39.1%

Scavenger Hunt – FLL edition

One of our favorite things to do in Louisville every year was the Danger Run.  It was basically a scavenger hunt to do in your car by solving riddles and clues to determine your next destination.  For our wedding, Beth’s parents put together a Nashville scavenger hunt for some of our friends who were in town.  Actually, I think Carl and Diana have about 4 or 5 of these up their sleeves.  So if you are ever in Murfreesboro, hit them up and they will send you on your way!  As you can see, we like some scavenger hunts!

So to help out our volunteers who come every year, Beth and I decided to put together a little scavenger hunt for each person to enjoy while visiting/working with us here in the FLL.  Over the past 20 days, we have had 2 groups in with us: Beth’s family and a team from Cedar Creek in Louisville (more to come from these trips next week).

While we would love to share the Hunt with you, it wouldn’t be fair to these teams if future teams coming out had a head start.  So without further ado, here’s the results from our first FLL Scavenger Hunt (46 total items):

Will P – 86.9%
Dan R – 82.6%
Alyssa R – 80.4%
Dei C – 80.4%
Sarah P – 78.3%
Abbey C – 78.3%
Alan P – 39.1%

Well, as you can see, our 13 year-old (and very observant) nephew currently sits atop the leaderboard.  He just squeaked out a win over Dan the youth man, and his wifey Alyssa.  While most everything on the list was seen by at least 1 person, the mysterious “carpool” continues to baffle our guests.  As for Alan P, he and Will were too busy talking church, theology, and missions to notice all that was going around and actually mark his sheet.

One of the more surprising things on the hunt was something not found.  Somehow, Dei C managed 8 days in FLL and never smelled some intense body odor!  How does that happen!?!

Congrats to all who played.  We can’t wait to see how the next group fares!
