Treasure Hunt 2018 - Congrat's to Team Finders for being first on the ball
 
Tom Munzig and Cory Nikolaus's team, the "Finders," took home the 2018 Treasure Hunt Trophy! We can't wait to see how they'll top this year's challenge, which had a theme of the  Cast Away movie with finding "Wilson" the objective of the event. Enthusiastic participation made for great fun.
A huge thank you goes out to last year's winners, Eric Caris and extended family, for an amazing job organizing and planning. The event included a team name and corresponding flag construction, coconut throw (bocce ball), spear fishing (darts), movie trivia sprint, phrase unscramble, clue coordinates, Morse Code directions and finally, a swim/paddle dash across the cove to mooring B5 to rescue poor ol' Wilson and the Treasure Box key taped to his authentic red volleyball face.  The challenges were hard, and the competition was fierce, but ultimately Team Finders prevailed.  Congrats to Tom Munzig and crew of Cory Nikolaus and three of his boys. A special thank you to all participants for making this another memorable Treasure Hunt event on the island.
