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 167: Get at least 100 citizens of voting age in your country to pledge to you that they will vote in the next upcoming election publicly on social media. If your pledges are from US citizens, they must additionally pledge to register to vote or, if they are already registered, confirm their registration status in the next 10 days because many states are purging voters from the registration roles. If you are not registered to vote, encourage them to register as an absentee voter, because it’s easier and you don’t have to show up to the polls on election day. Your job in doing this item is to both collect the pledges and to pledge to remind your pledges to vote in the week prior to the next election in question. Submit your proof in the form of a collage of 100+ pictures of people holding up “I WILL VOTE!” signs along with their proof of registration (personal information redacted).

Comment: We don't have proof of voting registration in New Zealand, but everyone we talked to and photographed did pledge to vote, and is registered to vote.

Item 110: A string quartet in formal black attire, playing horrendously in a public area (such as a mall). The sign next to them reads, "NEED LESSONS- PLEASE HELP." Any funds collected should be donated to a local children's music program. (Note: Please remember your Commandments & ensure busking is legal wherever you set up.)

Comment: Amanda (manderz57), Kate (hapykhiken), and the Popken sisters (local legends) delight and entertain passersby.

Item 164: Bake a cabbage pie, then calculate volume of a single slice of the cabbage pie using Pi. Show your work.

Comment: My need for accuracy got the better of me. You can't just keep that extra empty space in there.

Item 96: There’s something that happened in the past that haunts you. It’s time to light that sucker on fire and let it go. Write down your memory and wrap it in newspaper. Tape 20 matchsticks all around it and place it on a stack of wood. Light it and let it go in a fireplace, firepit or fire-safe area. Let’s see a picture of you and the burning item, or just the big burn. Caption your image however you wish.

Team CapelessCrusaders

Item 186: CALLING ALL GISHERS: You're enrolled in GISH U! On Day 1 of the Hunt, everyone on your team should identify a skill you’ve always meant to learn but have NEVER tried. During the course of the Hunt, you will take one meaningful step toward learning that chosen skill. Submit a collage showing you all attempting your newfound skills.
