Shamrock Around the Clock

Josh, me, Austin, and Andrew

YIKES!!! We got green hair! Welp, last night was our church's Shamrock Around the Clock youth event which is a city wide event that started last night at 6:30pm at ncbc and would conclude the next morning at 6:30am. It was tons of fun and I had the opportunity to be a driver for the event. Click here (or on the pic) for a slideshow of some of the pics I took. The night started at the church where the teens divided themselves up into teams of 3-6 for the scavenger hunt.

Each team had a 7 envelopes with puzzles in them that had to be solved one envelope at a time. We would then drive to the location indicated by the riddle or puzzle where the "elves" would then ask to do something crazy and we were scored on how well we did, but more for our enthusiasm. The puzzles and riddles were REALLY difficult and although we got off to a rough start, we finished all our envelopes and found the Leprechaun (Dave Sanders). Check back for a pic of Dave in the Leprechaun outfit!

There were about 300 youth involved and a ton of volunteers representing at least 8 churches that we know of. At the end of the scavenger hunt there was a gospel presentation on how to "find" Jesus Christ as our savior. All in all it was a great night and we had a great time!
