POSSIBLY FINAL HUNT UPDATE
Here's a longer version of the Herald story, which includes this excellent quote from a British tourist:
''What are all these lunatics doing here?'' said Tony Crushan, from Manchester, England. Crushan, sitting just off Lincoln Road by the beach, didn't understand why so many people would want to watch a game of volleyball played with inflated animal balloons instead of a ball.
Here's an explanation of how the Hunt worked (do not attempt to read this without first drinking coffee).
Here's a nice slideshow. In picture number 19, the young man in the green shirt sitting at the back of the stage applauding is Rob Barry, who was one of the beach animal-ball players.
And of course, Andy the TropicHunt.com Guy™ has a terrific wrapup with photos, links and more.
Again, thanks to everybody who participated or volunteered. It was a fine Hunt and a fun day, and we were happy that the winners were South Florida guys who've been doing the Hunt since it began, in 1984. As you may have heard, there's going to be a Hunt in Washington, D.C., in May 2008, sponsored by the Washington Post. The winners will receive cabinet appointments.
p.s. I think this might be my favorite Hunt photo ever.
