A Steampunk Scavenger Hunt

 In October 2009 there was a small gathering of myself and several friends to host a Steampunk scavenger hunt.  we had a grand time and intended to hold another one soon.  Alas, our busy lives prevented such a thing to occur.  We had joked that we should do it annually and had intended to do it for Halloween.  Several of us already had Halloween plans, so we pushed it out two weeks.  Today a total of 12 of us gathered and traveled around Winston-Salem with lists in hand.
For your viewing pleasure and to inspire you to partake in such merriment, I present our list and the rules!  FYI - we were able to split into three groups and had a blast!

The Rules
1-The team must stay together at all times - you may not split up to get tasks completed quicker - nobody said you couldn't multi-task together :)
2-All items must be obtained legally, with respect to individuals you are interacting with
3-Creativity counts - some of the items listed are ambiguous, others are specific - HAVE FUN!
4)Costumes count - the team gets five (5) points if everyone is in costume
5)The ultimate goal is to complete the list.  You get one (1) point per list item and two (2) points per BONUS item.  Exceptions are questions 31 and 38.
6-All teams must meet at the designated meeting spot at the set time - DO NOT BE LATE!  One point is deducted from the score for every minute you are late, up to a total of ten (10) minutes.
