Participants in the annual Salmon Days geoteaming hunt Sept. 24 take a break from scavenging to eat outside the Issaquah Brewhouse. By Pauline Middlehurst

About 150 people enjoyed two fun-filled hours roaming the streets of Issaquah with their families, friends and co-workers in search of treasures during the Salmon Days high-tech geoteaming scavenger hunt.

Participants navigated Issaquah using a hand-held GPS unit, map and clue sheet to locate cache sites. Each cache site had a point value to accumulate a team score. Some very competitive teams even ran the entire course.

The two sessions included lunch provided by the host Issaquah Brewhouse.

The event and lunch were provided free thanks to the generous spawnsorship of Issaquah Brewhouse, Discovery Heights Apartments and Kitchen Plus, Bellevue. There were a couple of extra bonus sites with Extreme Pizza and Earth Pet giving out additional incentives.

All had a good time and the teams made the cache sites in record time.

Join in again next year on the Salmon Days Sporting Weekend, always the weekend before the festival, for some free fun and new sporting challenges.

No geoteaming will be on Oct. 1-2, Salmon Days weekend.
