Bucky's Sweet Treats Challenge

Bucky's Sweet Treats Challenge




This year's challenge will again take you across the great state of Iowa! You will find a list of Iowa’s Ice Cream Shops, along with the coordinates to a location that serves up ice cream in that county.  The rules are simple, just like last year you'll need a picture as proof, so take a picture of the ice cream shop behind you while holding a piece of paper that says “Bucky Challenge 2017” and send it to Buckysweettreats@yahoo.com to be entered into the prize drawings.


There is a GPX file that you can download to go along with this sheet that will have the County, Name of the ice cream shop, and Coordinates.  There may be other ice cream shops in the area, but you need to submit a picture of the correct one.  When you email your picture it must be accompanied with the proper Number, County, and waypoint name from the list or your picture will not be allowed.  Also, Bucky was able to find most of the ice cream shops’ pictures online, so you need to be in the picture or a “mascot” with a sign that says “Bucky Challenge 2017” to prove that you were at the ice cream shop during this year’s Bucky Challenge.


So, visit as many ice cream shops as you can. Don’t forget to take a picture with the sign “Bucky Challenge 2017 and send it to Buckysweettreats@yahoo.com.  For each picture you submit, you will be entered into a drawing that will be held at Hike and Seek in September 2017. The top 50 players will be awarded the Bucky’s Sweet Treats Challenge pathtag. There will also be prize packages awarded again with year, along with more prize drawings. 


This year’s challenge starts today and runs through August 31st, 2017.
