NAMBLA wins :(

6 weeks. 21 participants. Half the field had to get 70% of the intial points through a series of activities. If they all did so, 1st - 3rd top point earners would get money for their charity. If half the field DID NOT get 70% of initial points....20% of pot would be donated to NAMBLA.

Here is the final tally:

3rd Jessica Hanson, 2nd Stephanie Lehr, and 1st Thomas Pyeatt in their respective outdoor poses

 

Unfortunately, the group failed and the North American Man Boy Love Association will be given an anonymous donation. Though here are some our findings in this first of it's kind event here at The Pit 702:

  • If you have a hospitality job that doesn't afford you the hours to get outdoors on your sporadic days off, you were screwed. 
  • If you didn't become engrained with a close support system of homies pushing you to get these activities done, you were screwed.
  • If you got hurt or were dealing with life (work, kids, job, school), you were screwed. 
  • Using the charity of choice as motivation (and subsequent NAMBLA anti charity) wasn't enough to keep folks on track. 

While the Summer Scavengers did not get the collective outcome of overcoming NAMBLA, here are some positive take aways:

  • Eight people WERE motivated to complete these challenges.
  • People bonded in their adventures and we gained some new Pit Monsters.
  • EVERYONE was fit enough to accomplish these hikes...and at the very least, one class.

So all is not a total loss. We always want to do innovative things here at The Pit 702 and will learn from this first Summer Scavenger Series and improve upon it. Stay tuned for the next challenge!

And no we're not donating to NAMBLA, relax.
