The Barfield/Pool wedding scavenger hunt contest is officially
The contest - Below you will find 30 pictures of our official business card taken at locations around town. These locations Betsy and I have some close connection to or have frequented often.
The Rules -
Each participant must have [had] their final responses in to us by midnight on Sunday, September 26th to be considered for the contest. The person with the most correct will win the grand prize. If there are multiple individuals who have guessed correctly then the individual that have described the locations in the most detail will win.
We will announce the winner at the reception. If you are not present, we will give it to the runner-up and so on.
The winner will get a $50 dollar gift certificate to Signs of Life.
(Signs of Life is a local art gallery, coffee shop and bookstore in downtown Lawrence.)

Teams may be formed but we will still only give out one gift card. Hunt wisely.
