Scavenger Hunt at the National Zoo! – 20s & 30s Going Out Group
Event on 2016-05-01 14:00:00
It's time for the next scavenger hunt! We'll meet up outside at the National Zoo at 2pm. Please be ON TIME! If you've done one of our scavenger hunts before, you'll know we get a fresh set of clues / questions each and every hunt. We will check in, get the teams together, distribute hunt materials, and review rules and guidelines. The teams disperse and the 2-hour hunt begins starting at 2:30pm. Teams will have until 4:30pm to decipher the clues and solve the riddles. The hunt will take you through numerous exhibits, collections, and artifacts! At 4:30pm we will collect the results, score each team, and announce the winner. A Fandango gift certificate will be awarded to each member of the winning team! Following the hunt, we will adjourn to a nearby spot for food, drinks, and a recap of the afternoon! If you haven't been there before, the National Zoo is one of the oldest zoos in the United States, with 1,800 animals of 300 different species. One-fifth of them are endangered or threatened. The best known residents are the giant pandas, and is also home to birds, great apes, big cats, Asian elephants, insects, amphibians, reptiles, aquatic animals, small mammals and many more! Please note the event ticket price goes towards the contracting company we hire to devise the scavenger hunt package, to include questions, answer key, and rules, as well as prizes for the winning team. Any remainder goes towards our Meetup group fees and expenses. We've got an early bird special for this event of only (the price of 2 cocktails at many lounges / clubs)! The first 50 paid sign-ups, or those who pay by Sun. Apr. 24th (whichever comes first) get the early bird price! After that, the ticket price will go to . To make payment, please follow the steps in the "Payment Instructions" section of the event posting. Also please know that your RSVP is not guaranteed unless we receive payment. When you pay, your online receipt is confirmation that we have received your payment. I hope to see you there! – J.T. — Metro and Parking The closest Metro is Woodley Park – Adams Morgan (Red line). I suggest Metro / cabbing if you can. I also recommend using wmata.com for travel planning. Don't forget to account for Metro, traffic, and parking delays. If you are driving, you will need to find street parking or a garage. I recommend using parkopedia.com for garage parking planning. Suggested Items to Bring • SPF • Comfortable shoes • WATER! Event Check-in We will have a master list of all those that have paid. It’s not required, but I recommend printing out your payment confirmation as a backup. When you check-in, your RSVP will be listed under the name of the Paypal or credit card account used to make payment. Typically, this is your LEGAL name as shown on your driver's license. Sometimes, it may be under a company name if you set up your Paypal or credit card account that way. If you are not sure what it is, please take a moment to log into your Paypal account (it will say "Welcome, [your account name]" at the top) or your credit card account to find out. If you are RSVP'd under someone else's payment, please use that name for check-in. Refund Policy Since we pay in advance for this event, all sales are final unless the event is canceled or rescheduled. If the event is canceled or rescheduled, an UPDATE will be posted at the top of the event posting, and the UPDATE will also be sent as an email to the yes RSVPs. A full refund will be submitted no later than Wednesday of the following week. For rescheduled events, you must let us know within 3 calendar days of the UPDATE email if you are unable to make the new date… no refunds will be given after that time. Thanks for understanding. =) Ticket Resell Similar to a concert ticket or a football game ticket, you are free to sell your ticket to someone else if you are unable to attend. Work out payment between yourselves, and have the seller only send the organizer a "message" letting us know the first AND last name and Meetup profile URL (if a member) of the person taking your spot.I host a lot of events and groups, so please also let us know the event name and group name the ticket transfer is for. You must let us know by the RSVP close time of 11am on the day of the event. Weather Should inclement weather (e.g. snow storm, hurricane, etc.) affect our event, we'll need to reschedule or cancel. If any one of the following is not available for service due to inclement weather, we'll need to do so: Metrorail is not running to all stops, Uber (X, SUV, etc.) is not running or available at no more than 2x standard rates, venue(s) are not open. I'll post an UPDATE to the top of the event posting by 11:30am on the day of our event with the details. Rain Policy If it's light rain, we're still on. If there's lightning, we'll need to reschedule or cancel. Hopefully, if there is precipitation, it will just be a quick passing "summer" rain. If it looks like there might be possible rain, I'll post an update by 11:30am the morning of the event. If we cancel or reschedule, and you are unable to make the new date, you will get a full refund. Special Needs If you have any special needs (e.g. wheelchair, dietary for events with food included, etc.), let us know in advance (a week or more before the event) and we will do our best to accommodate. If you let us know the day of the event, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to help. Thank you for understanding and we appreciate the courtesy of a heads up!
