Not so long ago, right here in the South Florida Tri-county area, a small group of local social media professionals came up with an idea. It was such a simple idea that many wondered why no one thought of before. The plan was drive cars, eat free pizza, meet new people, take pictures, and tweet about the whole thing in real time.’s #chevypizzacrawl was born:

Little did they realize: <yoda>Begun the #chevycrawl wars have…</yoda>

After 3 successful #chevypizzacrawls, Chevy teamed up with another popular local blogger, @TheTinyJEWELBox, to enjoy the sweet tastes of South Florida.  Instead of eating greasy pizza, participants would go to some of the best local Cupcake locations on their own #chevycupcakecrawl.

Now, far be it from me to pass up some free free pizza or cupcakes, and getting to test drive an awesome Chevy around town; But we’re “Geeks with Social Skills”. So, without further adieu, I present our entry into the #chevycrawl wars – the #chevygeekhunt.

On Saturday afternoon, October 2nd, 16 Lucky Social Geeks will get to go on a Geo-caching scavenger hunt unlike anything they’ve ever experienced.

If selected, you will be given clues to our base-camp, where we will set out in 4 different Chevys, and the time that you are supposed to be there.

Yes, you read that right.

– No name

– No directions.

– No address.

– No phone # (except for mine if you really get lost)

After everyone arrives, you’ll be given your #chevygeekhunt briefing and uniform.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, will be to get yourself to various predetermined destinations based solely on clues and the Chevy you are driving. You will only get the next set of coordinates after completing your assigned task at each location.

In order to be selected to be part of the #chevygeekhunt::

* You must be available Saturday, October 2nd from approximately 11am to 5pm

* You must be at least 21-years-old

* You must have a valid driver’s license

* You must be alright with having your pictures taken

If you meet the above criteria, you have until 10pm Sunday, September 26th to leave a comment below telling me why you think you should be chosen to participate in the #chevygeekhunt.

Participants will be announced on Monday, September 27th either during or after the #pizzatweetup.

[UPDATED] Please make sure your comments are left by logging in through either Facebook or Twitter so you can be reached if selected.

[UPDATE #2] We’ve decided to extend the deadline by another 24 hours to Monday night, September 27th at 10pm.
