What quirky neighborhood icons should be in the Gumshoe?

by | Mar 9, 2010

Every August is the Gumshoe 5K Walk, a fun scavenger hunt that leads you to discover quirky things around our neighborhood. A fundraiser for the Greenwood Senior Center and organized by Mike Veitenhans, it’s a great way to spend a few hours prowling around the ‘hood.
Veitenhans is currently putting together this year’s walk and he’s looking for interesting neighborhood spots to use as clues, such as last year’s house with bowling ball yard art…

Or this sidewalk strip full of words and art tiles.

Gumshoe Advance Scouts can send descriptions or photos, along with location information, to the [email protected].

Update: Mike tells us that he’s hoping to add a geocaching element to the Gumshoe this year. If you’ve got experience in geocaching and would like to help out, please email him.
