265. Spot the Scarecrow: A Straw Man for 3 Reasons

 There are only a few days left to vote for who you think should win the Village of Barrington’s annual scarecrow design competition. So we have time for one last Spot the Scarecrow mystery photo contest. One Barrington business designed their scarecrow with a Ride for 3 Reasons theme this year in honor of Bob Lee, who is wrapping up his 2,000 mile bike ride down the Pacific coast this week.

If you can guess outside what Barrington business we spotted the 3 Reasons scarecrow, you’ll have a chance to win a prize linked to the place where we took the picture.  Take a minute to look for the clue you’ll find under his armpit.  You can greatly increase your odds of winning just by picking up the phone ;)!
Bob Lee is getting closer, but he has yet to reach his goal of raising $1 Million to support initiatives related to cancer, ALS and Hospice end-of-life care. He still has to raise about $100,000 in individual donations to unlock $200,000 of matching funds that have been pledged to the cause if Bob can reach his goal. Bob says every little bit helps and he’s looking forward to visiting with supporters at his welcome home party, which is coming up from 4 to 5 p.m. at Good Shepherd Health and Fitness Center on Saturday, November 3rd.  To learn more about the ride and support the cause, visit 3Reasons.org.
And if you know where we took the picture of this week’s 3 Reasons scarecrow, all you have to do is enter your guess below for a chance to win.  But first, we just drew the name of last week’s winner and it is……

252. “Spot the Scarecrow” Mystery Photo Contest Returns

 With scarecrows decorating businesses throughout Barrington, we can’t help but reintroduce Spot the Scarecrow, the fall version of our weekly mystery photo contest here at 365Barrington.com. The first photo of our series is one of the many straw creations designed for the Village of Barrington’s annual Scarecrow Contest.  This guy is dressed up as an artist and you’ll spot him if you’re whizzing by on a pretty busy street in town.  Can you guess where he is?

And just in case this tight shot’s too tricky, here’s a more revealing look. His artwork is quite impressive for a man made of straw and the buildings in the background might give it away.  But if you can’t think of where he is now, keep looking around town and I bet you’ll find him.  You have a week to submit your guesses.

The winner of this week’s contest will receive a cool prize that has something to do with the spot where we took the picture.  That might have some of you scratching your heads, but you’ll find out next week ;).  Entering the contest is easy and you’ll find the steps below. But first, we just drew our winner from last week’s contest and her name is……
