This sounds similar to the old stamp rally, which I've been asking to bring back for a while now. From what Eric told me, in order to implement something like this (cool as it sounds), you need to be willing to take full responsibility for it. As in, show the other staff members that you can head this event up with a sample budget and a few volunteers and really work to make it great.

Of course, you could do it unofficially, like start in front of the center on Saturday at 10 AM and have a certain place for people to turn in their completed sheets or whatever, that's fine. But if you want it to be a Fanime-sponsored thing then you'll definitely need to be prepared to head it up in a big way. ^_^

Ok, well contact Eric about it. He's around the forums his nickname is Ewu.

Send him a message about what you want to do and he can direct you the right way. Of course, there may be budget issues or whatever so he may not be as open to a new "department" so to speak...but the best way to go about it right now is to talk to him and see what he says.

If you modify the current objectives to fit in an approximate 1-2 hour time slot, foot the bill on expenses, and make one central location for the event, of which the fountains in front would be required, but at the right time it could have up to 700 people out there ^^P this could be a "cosplayer/attendee run event." Besides running the event and maintaining your thread, there are a couple of other minimal requirements (I will assist you on,) but an advantage of this is that I will put it up on all of the "Official Cosplayer Gatherings" boards located around con under the "Cosplayer Events" section and I will add it to the decided day/time/location on the Official Thread... which means lots of PR! :P

If your interested PM me.

Make sure that the number of items that each group needs to locate can fit into that 1-2 hour period. I would suggest a late morning (11am or so) and an early evening (5 pm) this will allow some to participate for at least an hour before many of the main events/gatherings/panels start up. By running it no longer than 2 hours it will help people know if they can participate or if it will cause them to miss something @ con. 
We can talk more (via pm) if you are interested in this way of running your event.

Also, you can have people locate me if you would like ^^) Those that know me know how challenging that can be *LOL :P

Another suggestion would be to find Eurobeat King *LOL There is another challenge! :P But get his permission first before listing him ^^)

Hugs ^^)

As I said in your "help from cosplayers" thread, I'm willing to be among the hunted. Based on what I'm seeing so far for the Vampire Knight gathering, it looks like I might be the only Rima Tohya, which might make me somewhat of a rare find. *laughs* But, yeah, this looks like fun. :3
