Saturday I participated in the Panther Purrsuit, a social media scavenger hunt that centers off of Twitter. I wasn't sure what to expect at first but as Saturday drew closer and the friendly trash talk began. My teammate, Samantha and I were sponsored by Painting with a Twist (@PWATCLT) and could not have been represented by a more fun company! Thanks, PWAT!
On Saturday I wrested with what to wear with my PWAT shirt and masquerade mask. My original plan to wear my burgundy pants that would match the feathers in my mask but considering the pants are a tad bit long it is a must that wear heels/boots with them. At the last minute I decided to go with jeans and burgundy flats.
Meet-up was at 1pm at the Panthers Practice field, Samantha and I (Team CLT Masquerade) were ready to take on the competition. We spoke with some of the Allen Tate representatives who were there to help facilitate the Purrsuit, Allen Tate was one of the sponsors of the Panther Purrsuit.
The first three challenges took place on the practice field. Whoop. Whoop. Who would have ever thought I would be playing games on the practice field of the Panthers. Challenge #1: Kick a field goal - the further back the better score. Sam and I both gave it our best try. I even put on Sam's tennis shoe, no go. Then I tried to kick it with my flats on. Lets just say the ball flew...and about 5 sec delay so did my shoe. Quite humorous to all who saw this. Gotta laugh. That is what this is all about.
Challenge #2 was much easier than kicking a field goal. It was an improv with an Allen Tate rep. Funny. Goofy. Just watch the video above. Challenge #3 was just as fun a 3-legged race run with an Allen Tate rep. Which I ran, and thought it to be with great time.
Once the challenges at the practice field were done...we were off! The first stop was suppose to be ride on the Gold Rush to the Allen Tate office which turned into a walk through the Culture Fair. What I loved is that we used QR codes to get to our next destination and some were even audio personalized. How awesome, great job guys! We had two challenges at the Allen Tate office, kind of like a Price is Right game attach prices to the home in the greater Charlotte area.
The final challenge at Allen Tate was Pictionary...and while most of my friends know I get quite excited when I play Catch Phase, same way with Pictionary.
After our awesome Pictionary round at Allen Tate next up was heading back to the car...we may or may not have been cursing the Gold Rush. Next stop was Classroom Central where there were 3 challenges. Challenge #1 learn a Panther cheer with two of the Panther cheerleaders. Done and done. Next up a shopping spree through Classroom Central. Which there was a video...but it never got uploaded. So sad. Stupid wifi. Next up the scavenger hunt in the Suburu on South Blvd. cars. We did pretty well and found quite a few items.
Our next stop was Queen City Audio Video & Appliances on Queen City Blvd. This stop was fun and I must say a bit relaxing. We had to study a cheat sheet of movie preview we were going to watch on a 3D TV and answer the questions.
Then another improv skit this time it was cooking Thanksgiving dinner with Sir Purr! Get ready to laugh.
Our final stop of the Purrsuit before the finish line was Circle K. I was afraid we were going to have to down a big gulp are something seeing we were given two buy one get one free coupons for a large drink size. We got there and got our free drinks. Holla. We were oh so thirsty.
Final challenge play Pepsi pong. Sam was awesome and we got some really great points to add to the rest.
Our finish line was at the Epicenter. Though we didn't win any prizes we had a blast and I cannot wait for next year. Being a rookie I made notes for next year...and this year was awesome but next year will be epic.
After the Panther Purrsuit I had a Halloween Costume party to attend...though my costume was just a carry over from the Purrsuit games. I was just oh too tired to change.

It was so great to see some of my fave Charlotte bloggers! I didn't stay long but I had a great time and Michelle is an incredible hostess.
That was my Saturday! I hope you all had an incredible weekend as well.
