No counts were taken, but the
3,000 eggs that it took the group members more than a half-hour to
scatter over a large, grassy area, with a few of the goodies even
being hidden in trees for more difficult retrieval, took the masses
of kids just three minutes to clean up.
Children up to 12 years of age were invited to participate in the
event. Before the start, they were divided into age groups. All were
released at the same time to run into separate pastures. Like herds
running over prairies, the kids launched forth, seeking to get out
front, stoop and collect as many of the eggs and packaged candies
strewn about as they could get their hands on. Everyone walked away
a winner, with plenty of goods in each basket, bag or pail; but
clearly, some were luckier or more skilled.
