2015 Hawks & Hawgs Scavenger Hunt



The 2015 Hawks & Hawgs Scavenger Hunt was held at

Jim Hamilton/LB Owens Airport in Downtown Columbia, SC

on April 18 (Hawgs) and May 2 (Hawks rain date), 2015.


The event was a "Hawks & Hawgs" version of the Scavenger Hunt we had held for the past two years. 


This year, bikers (Hawgs) competed with pilots (Hawks)

to see who could raise the most money for Camp Kemo.


Each Hawg team had a list of clues that could be found in and around the downtown Columbia area. 

They had 2 hours to locate sites, take pictures or video,

and return to the Airport.
On the Hawks side, pilots and crew would choose 10 clues to random checkpoints and plan their flights. 

They had 1.5 hours to locate and document as many

checkpoints/clues as they could and land back at KCUB.
