Rules for Simple Photo Scavenger Hunt:
1. No laws may be broken while taking the photographs.

2. The team driver (if applicable) must put his/her driver's license in a sealed envelope before the team leaves home base. The envelope is placed in the glove compartment of the vehicle. If the envelope is open when the team returns, the team is disqualified. Essentially, if the driver gets pulled over for a traffic violation, then the envelope would necessarily have to be opened.

3. Each team must take a picture of as many items from the Scavenger Hunt List as possible.

4. Each photo must contain at least one member of the team with the item listed.

5. Teams must return to home base within the time limit.

How to Play:
1. Each team gets in their vehicle (if applicable). The driver seals his/her license in an envelope.

2. The team may go to any place where they might find the items. The team then takes a picture of the item with at least one team member in the photo as well.

3. Be sure to watch the clock as every team needs to return to home base at a specific time.

Decide how many points each item is worth. This should be based on the ease of getting the picture. For instance, if the airport is in the next town over, it should be worth more points because of time and distance.

The team with the most points at the end of the scavenger hunt wins.
