The Great Austin MOO Crew Hunt

13th March 2009 by Lisa

Based on all the #SXSW tweets on Twitter, a fair few of you are heading to Austin this weekend for SXSWi. A few of the MOO Crew (Richard, Stef and I) are also going and we thought it would be cool to meet & exchange cards. However, we thought it could prove difficult given we don’t know what we all look like. So, we came up with what hopefully will be a fun way to meet.

Starting Saturday morning we’ll kick off The Great Austin MOO Crew Hunt. Here’s the idea and some basic rules:

1. First, we’ll post a short trivia-type question via Twitter (you’ll need to follow us @overheardatmoo)

2. In the tweet, we’ll also provide a clue to the location of one of the MOO Crew (don’t worry the clue will be easy)

3. If you’re in the vicinity come seek us out. (Not sure what we look like? Here we are: Richard, Stef and me)

4. After you find us, whisper the answer to the question in our ears. If you are one of the first 3 people to get the right answer, we’ll give you a fun MOO prize (and yes, it will be more than just getting to say hello)

5. Exchange cards!

Now, what about the rest of the team back in London and all those MOOsters who aren’t going to SXSW? Don’t worry we decided to do a virtual MOO Crew Hunt. That means, same rules except the running around Austin to find us. Just DM (direct message) us on Twitter and the first person who correctly answers the question wins a MOO prize as well.

So see you in Austin … the hunt begins on Saturday morning.

    Welcome to Texas, ya’ll!
    Will the Moo Crew still be in Austin during the week? I am arriving Austin on Tuesday( for work, but hey, that’s why i needed those cards)
    If still in town let me know, if not, enjoy Austin and make sure you take time for chicken fried steak!

  2. Lisa:

    Hi. The hunt has started. Question 1:

    What day did the MOO CREW dress as their illustrious leader to celebrate his birthday? Look for me in #sxsw queue at 9 OR DM us.

    See the rest of the clues on Twitter!

  4. Denise:

    hi Scott, sorry, the MOO Crew that were there have come back now. They were just there for the interactive part.

  5. Allyson:

    Hi. Are you planning on having the egg hunt for Easter like you did last year?

  6. Denise:

    Hi Allyson,
    no plans as yet, I’m afraid. We’d like to do something, but if we do, it wont be on the grand scale it was last year, as it’s very time consuming!
    Having said that, we do have another fun competition coming up, so if you’re itching to get working on something, stay tuned :)
