Foster Preservation Society
is sponsoring a Foster scavenger hunt to locate sites throughout
Town using GPS coordinates. A reward will go to those who find
all of the locations.
We are not sending
anyone into the forest or down a cart path. You can use the
GPS in your auto, a hand held unit or a smart phone with GPS
capability. While all locations are along a road, you may have
to look around for the clue. Everything will be spelled out on
the entry form. The idea is to see Foster.
There will be ten
selected locations, with nine being given out at the beginning of
your tour and the tenth being dependent on clues gathered at the
first nine locations. Upon completion, return your entry to
the designated location and it will be entered in a drawing for a
$100 cash prize.
Entry is simple,
stop at the Town House at the start of the event, beginning at
9:00 a.m. October 18, 2014, and purchase an entry and a
Tee Shirt for $25. The shirts retail for $15 making the actual
entry fee $10. Follow the provided GPS coordinates in any
order you wish, picking up the clue for the final destination and
taking a photo of a member of the team/individual wearing the tee
shirt, or with the shirt staged for the photo, with the site as
background. Return the entry form before 4:00 p.m. to the
