    This is to raise money to help with the set up costs for The East Atlanta Strut, the Strut takes place on september 18th, hence the August date for the Hunt.
    e-mail me and I will add you to the distro list for future hunts.

    I have been on the hunts and have also had the pleasure to help plan a few. Fran Coleman, who designs and coordinates the events is very precise, creating a challenging team oriented day. Great for kids when hosted at the Cemetery.
