March 1, 2014 - Happy March Edness!

It's that time of year again. Time when the Dedicated Staff of edhat.com scour the countryside of south Santa Barbara County to find the most obscure, the most obvious, and the most unique. The staff took 20 photos of interesting places from Carpinteria to Goleta. Places that you'll see and think, "I know where that is! Wait.. where is it exactly?" Starting on Monday at midnight, the first photo will post and we think it's pretty easy, but don't get used to it. Each week the photos will get progressively harder and harder. One thing to remember when submitting your answers, the more specific the location, the better.

Last year's champion was Cones who earned 45 points out of 50. Penelope805 came in second with 44 points, while holazola and sbmkr tied for 3rd with 43 points.

Who will be the front-runners this year? Don't forget to renew your edhat subscription for only $4 to play the game!
