Day 3: San Diego Opera Scavenger Hunt

Today's scavenger hunt is over and we have our winners! Kiana Bell who managed to finish the contest in just 1 hour and 35 minutes, and Susan Spoto who crossed the finish line at 5:12 pm, became each proud owners of a R. Black poster.

Here's how they did it:

At 10 am, we posted the following picture of our web site on our Facebook Page:


At first glance it looks like our regular homepage (www.sdopera.com), at a closer look however, you might have noticed the word 'daughter' in the search field. The text said: 'Bonjour! Welcome to our THIRD scavenger hunt. Bonne chance."

Our website gives you three results for the search for 'daughter':


The word 'THIRD' in the Facebook post was written in capital letters and was the clue to click on the third search result which lead to our 'In the Classroom' Page.


The text included one additional sentence that read: 'If you are planning on seeing The Daughter of the Regiment that will return to San Diego for the third time after 1973 (1974 in Phoenix, Arizona only) and 1990, you can also have a look at Dr. Nicolas Reveles Youtube-Videos.'

After carefully studying the page, you would have noticed the hyperlinked words 'third time' which lead to one of Dr. Nic's videos:


The next clue was hidden in the comments: 

The french 'Ca vous plait? Alors consultez notre troiseme fichier en Pinterest pour plus d'informations!' 
said when translated with Google Translate 'Do you like it? Then have a look at our third folder on Pinterest for more information.'

The third folder on our Pinterest page is called 'Daughter of the Regiment - 31 Days of Opera Awesomeness' and contained three new pictures:


All were linked to an album on Facebook and also offered three additional french words: 'Trouvez la photo' which means 'Find the picture.' 


The folders name is 'First Day of Daughter of the Regiment Rehearsals' and it included a picture that contains all the different smaller pictures from Pinterest. 


The last clue could be found in the text:

'You are nearly done! Find The Daughter of the Regiment 2013 jigsaw puzzle. Solve it and send the codeword to carmen.kruse@sdopera.com.'


The Daughter of the Regiment jigsaw puzzle was posted on January 9, 2013, and included a link to http://www.jigzone.com/puzzles/4015F0D099B.


The jigsaw puzzle included 5 hidden letters (E,I,R,A,M) who provided the searcher with the codeword 'MARIE'.

And that was it!

Check in tomorrow at 10 am for another thrilling scavenger hunt!
