GISH Hall of Fame 2018

Welcome to the world’s weirdest, wildest, most beautiful and strange images and videos from the
Greatest International Scavenger Hunt!

The submissions below were selected by HARSHers, Misha and the Judges to be the best of the best of GISH 2018. Enjoy exploring the weirdness! Browse through them, or click on an item number to see the top submissions.

Item 126: In Rwandan culture, there exists a principle called Umuganda (from the Kinyarwanda word meaning, "coming together in common purpose to achieve an outcome.") The last Saturday of every month, all citizens of Rwanda must all come together to participate in Umuganda for 3 hours to complete a difficult task to help the community. I think the world could use more of this, so at the risk of cultural appropriation I'm implementing it for GISH. Identify something in your community that needs to be fixed and then, organize members of your community to meet from 5pm - 9pm in your time zone on Saturday, August 4 (unless your time zone falls past the deadline. Come together to improve one thing in your community: plant a garden, do a cleanup or improvement project, or find something that needs to be fixed and work together to fix it. Participation is key: the more hands on your project, the more points you get, so scramble to get as many people as you can in on this.

Comment: Beach cleanup in Clearwater, FL with multiple other local Gish teams!

Item 45: Make a super scary movie trailer of a visit to somewhere completely boring or normal (like a DMV - but now you can’t use that). You are not allowed to use any “jump scare” scare tactics, or actors. The suspense can only be created via how you shoot ordinary objects or people, and the score.

Item 152: Many hands make light work. A car is parked nose-in-angled toward the curb, but the rear wheel is 4 ft from curb. Using brute strength, pick up the rear of vehicle and align it so the car is parallel to the curb.


Comment: Only during GISH do you see brute strength being cheered on by T-Rex! Bonus: My elderly neighbor came out just to watch us since she found it surprisingly hilarious!

Item 57: It’s time for the annual Great Grandmother Rocking Chair Derby!
