2015 HG: P2P: OpenSim Treasure Hunt. Jan 31 to March 1. An HGProject

OpenSim Treasure Hunt.  Hunt across the Hypergrid. 
Jan 31 to March 1.  An HGProject 
A treasure hunt as wide at the Hypergrid!   Just the thing to give reason to explore the Hypergrid.  Grids and regions that participate get extra visibility and traffic.  They can give gifts with landmarks and promotional content.  Users can pick up useful gifts and can discover new HG places.  This could be a lasting institution on the HG.

                  1. There is still time to join the OpenSim Treasure Hunt if you want to. If your grid needs a Treasure Hunt Stand go to Hyperica Grid to kick one up. If you just want the kit so you can place the hunt item out so people will come looking for it and visit your region, you can also go to Hyperica Grid or the many on the list and click on it to get one. website information: http://tanglegrid.net/treasure-hunters/. Open to all HG active grids.
