The Amazing Race: Smashville Style
By Bryan Mullen

Nashville Predators fans swarmed the plaza outside Bridgestone Arena on Saturday morning, lining up early as single-game tickets went on sale while a mad-dash scavenger got underway.

Fans gobbled up $10 individual tickets during the 9 a.m. early-bird special, and the line continued to stretch when individual tickets to the general public began at 10 a.m. Nashville Predators defenseman Jonathon Blum and forward Zack Stortini were on-hand to greet fans, mingle with scavenger hunt teams and work the box office lines. Dunkin’ Donuts was also on site with free doughnuts and free coffee for fans.

The first-ever Smashville Text Scavenger Hunt was a success as more than 100 teams and 330 people raced around Downtown Nashville to complete the mission and win the grand prize: two full-season 2011-12 Predators tickets.

The winners were downtown residents Libby Funke, 28, Amanda Drewry, 27, and Tim Luff, 29.

They completed the hunt in less than an hour and raced to the entrance of Bridgestone Arena to ask who had won. When they were told they were the actual winners, Funke and Drewry screamed with delight as Luff fell to the ground in celebration.

“We’re all going to share them,” Luff said. “The weather was perfect for something like this and it was just the right distance. We ran the entire way.”
