Easiest Scavenger Hunt Ever
If you don't have this stuff, you're doing something wrong.
We'll be by in 30 minutes to evaluate your preparedness. You should have the first N items on the list at your headquarters, where N is the number of people you registered for your team. (If you feel a different number is more appropriate, provide sufficient rationale.) You may replace any item in 1 to N with two farther down (with indexes greater than N) to compensate. If you're not ready in 30 minutes, you must provide N+M sequential items (with the preceding allowances on substitutions), where M is the number of 10-minute increments by which you delay.
