Scavenger hunters take over
Salem-Keizer this weekend
Of the Keizertimes
It will be an exciting weekend for
local puzzle enthusiasts thanks to a
Keizer-based Farmers Insurance agent.
Matthew Poteet, owner of the Poteet
Insurance Agency and an affi liate of
Farmers Insurance, wanted to come up
with an idea that would help promote
his new Keizer offi ce and give the com-
munity a chance to begin reconnecting
after a long 15 months. He landed on
a scavenger hunt, but had no idea the
size of the ball he was setting in motion.
Poteet organized the event as a
chance to get together in a safe way
and to have some fun.
“We wanted this to be a celebration

“The goal is that everyone will walk
away with something,” Poteet said.
Poteet said that he plans to give away

Bruce Kahler, a resident of Keizer,
died peacefully at home April 27, 2021
with his wife and children by his side
after a long battle with cancer.
Bruce was born on July 16, 1955, in
He is survived by his wife of 30 years,
Kris Kahler, his three children, Brandon,
Nic and Kari Kahler and their families.
He is also survived by his brother, Brad
Kahler, and sister, Roxanna Buchholz.

players might need in terms of time
and distance constraints.
As a result, most routes could be
tailored to players needs and desires.
If one group of players opted to stay
in Keizer while another preferred a
more sprawling route through Salem,
both were available. The path taken
after that initial decision was almost
completely up to players based on the
choices they made.
