#155: Usher Does St. Augustine’s Confessions. St. Augustine Does Usher’s “Confessions”. 5 points each
#74: Barbershop rendition of “The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins,” as originally performed by Leonard Nimoy. And if your quartet is not in costume as hobbits who are also Starfleet members, we just don’t see the point. 2x4 points
If that ain’t cross-genre fan-fic fanfare, I don’t know what is. Send in your completed #Scav2014 list items to uchicagoadmissions - we might just feature your submission!
#48: Ballroom dances can really reveal the intricacies of romance and love, but they leave out a vital aspect of the relationship—the 3rd wheel. At Judgment, perform a dance that incorporates this element into its choreography. 3x4 points

The game (Scav) is afoot (a fancier way of saying on)!

From today through Sunday, we’re your source for select Scav 2014 list items, photos of teams in action, and all things Scav Hunt-related. 

Finally, a challenge to our followers: show us your UChicago love by sending in pics of your own completed Scav items, and we might just post them. Happy Scavving!
