  3. 3. Event # 1: An activity Involving Interpretation of Information Luana was first blindfolded and told that she would need to find an object hidden in the room worth more than a dollar. The audience would help her find the object by answering Yes / No questions for her. Her first task was to hold up a sign showing everyone what she was looking for and where it was hidden.
