Some of the most popular posts here on this blog have been about scavenger hunts – so we wanted to share this event from the Western PA Orienteering Club.
This Saturday, December 1, 2012 the Western PA Orienterring Club is headed to Frick Park for their last event of 2012.
Here are the details for the event from the Meet-up page:

The Western PA Orienteering Club sent us an email about the upcoming scavenger hunt at Raccoon Creek State Park on March 25. I know there are quite a of our readers who have participated in previous scavenger hunts, the Urban Hike folks organize one every fall. This looks like a neat way to check out Raccoon Creek state park and patricipate in a scavenger hunt. Raccoongaine III is limited to 150 entries – according to the facebook group for the event – 115 have registered thus far so there is still room to enter.
In a rogaine-style format, individuals or… Read the rest

We haven’t heard of any cornhole tournaments in awhile. While the sport certainly has become pretty popular here in Western PA – if you are new to the game. Cornhole is kind of like horseshoes but played with bean bags instead of heavy metal objects – probably much safer than horseshoes.
Gilda’s Club is hosting a Cornhole Tournament on Saturday, August 20, 2011 – spend an afternoon tossing some bean bags, meeting some of the great people from Gilda’s Club and supporting a good cause.

Pittsburgh has been gaining quite a bit of attention from other places for our bicycle friendly community. This is due in large part to the hard work of the folks at BikePgh and the people in Pittsburgh who ride their bikes and want to make this a better place for all bike riders.
Even if you don’t have a bike or like to ride a bike (the only bike I have been on in the past 10 years is the spinning bike – I am great at pedaling and going nowhere) – we can all celebrate the community of cyclists… Read the rest
