RYE, N.Y. -- More than 275 participants divided into teams and searched for clues, collected items and posed for creative photos on Sunday, Sept. 21, during the Rye Y’s Centennial Scavenger Hunt.

The hunt was run in conjunction with Watson Adventures but included plenty of challenges specific to the Rye Y’s centennial such as “find a piece of team artwork that features the number 100 and “collect a coin minted in 2003 (the year the Rye Y doubled the size of its facility). Photo challenges included ‘using your bodies to spell the letter Y,” “swimming on dry land” and dramatize “Spirit, Mind, Body.”

The winning team was the Roche family (Rye-diculous 4). Other winners were Team Cheetaliscious Cheetahs, second place; Garnetts, honorable mention; Rockin' Rockadoodles, most team spirit; Purple Armadillos, best team name and Crozier Cubs, best photos.

The hunt was made possible with the  support of the event sponsors, including All Paws, Carpet Trends, County Coach Corp., Dr. Theo Mantzikos & Dr. Ilan Shamus, GEICO's local office, Jerry’s Post Road Market, Longford’s, Rye Beverage, Sotheby's, TD Bank, Whole Foods and WISH.
