We’re excited to bring back the scavenger hunt to everyone again. If you don’t know the rules, they are as follows: When you get to the end of this post (After we organize the Author date and time) you will click on the link that will be available the day it starts. Read their book, and you’ll notice words Italicized. Write it down. Then, at the end of that post there will be a link to the next author’s page. That page will also have a word that’s bolded and capitalized. You will proceed through 20 different websites and each one will have a word that you need. After you have each author, you will need to find the next author’s website by using the italicized words and author of each page, by inputting them into the internet search tool bar as we will not provide links to each step.
This is a little different than what we have been doing over the years, but it will keep things a bit more interesting. There will not be a link available after this page. The last website will direct you back to a page here on this site (it’s a secret page you will not be able to find).
You then have to assemble words that you have collected to find a verse in the Old Testament. There are 20 words in this verse. Once you have collected all the words and assembled the verse you email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org to post to the site your answer. Everyone who gets it right will then be submitted into a random computer generated drawing according to their first and last name. Those people who also correctly identify where in the Old Testament this verse is located, will have their name submitted twice. No copying off others if you know someone else playing the scavenger hunt. For more information on internet scavenger hunts click here.
We’re working to bring this back, so please keep up with our updates. Hope everyone is staying safe, healthy, and happy. Happy Valentines Day to everyone.
There seems to be a little confusion about the rules for the hunt based on the emails we’re receiving. The original rules are posted below, and the old rules are brought back from 2013 for educational purposes on behalf of the folks roofing palm desert.
“The rules are simple. Start here. At the end of this post you’ll find a link to an author’s page. Click on the link, head over to the page, and read about their latest book. Somewhere in that post there will be a single word that is in BOLD AND ALL CAPITALS. Write it down. (Note, the words Home and Good Luck are not secret words for anyone.) Then, at the end of that post there will be a link to the next author’s page. That page will also have a word that’s bolded and capitalized. You will proceed through 10 different websites and each one will have a word that you need. The last website will direct you back to a page here on this site.
You then have to unscramble the words that you have collected to find a verse in the New Testament. There are 10 words in this verse. Once you have collected all the words and unscrambled the verse you will be directed to submit an email with your completed verse. Everyone who gets it right will be submitted to a random drawing. Those people who also correctly identify the book, chapter and verse where the verse is found will have their name submitted twice. Please note, we are using NKJV for this verse.
When the scavenger hunt is over one name will be drawn and that person will win a free book from every participating author! The contest is only open to United States entrants this time. That’s 10 new books to read for the winner! Make sure you read each website carefully, though, since many of the participating authors are also hosting contests on their own sites. Follow their directions to enter their personal contests.”
***These are the old rules (above) for the scavenger hunt***
- Still working on the details for the hunt, but we’ll keep you updated. If you haven’t sent in your email request yet, please do so we can get you on the list. Thank you!
