The Hunt is Over!
Congratulations to the Zusman Family for finding the medallion. Did any of the clues or locations have you stumped? Check out the Medallion Hunt Decoded.
You’ve gone to so much trouble,
But now it looks like you’re seeing double.
Pull out your clues; this is no time to fret
Pluck a few strings as you watch the sunset.
The late 1800’s and settlers brought this which was odd
Native to Europe and Asia it quickly took sod.
The Old Chief was a mighty warrior, proud and tall –
His village was made up of creeks, lakes and ponds great and small.
The Pottawatomie tribe enjoyed fish as part of their daily diet –
You might too, but won’t be able to try it.
Those who came after tilled crops from the ground
By the “break of day” your clue can be found.
A civic group helped to develop this land
Digging and building through both dirt and sand
Creating a space to picnic or play,
Grill, swing or see a cardinal or jay
Travel the streets of this neighborhood
Where once a stock farm and playhouse once stood
Relax by the lake and cast out a line.
Splash around in the summer – the water’s just fine.
Or sit and admire the garden up close
As cold rain falls and spring blooms boast.
You might be surprised when you hear
There’s something to do every month of the year.
Although this name is all about boating –
Ducks, leaves and small fish are all you’ll see floating.
If hiking and biking are what you love most –
Trails and a bridge will serve as your guidepost.
As far as your hidden clue is concerned –
Locating it will be a treasure you surely will earn.
An anniversary celebration is close at hand
with fun, food, friends and even a band.
You’ll find there is fun for one or for all
something for big, something for small.
To serve the community, partnering is best
When scoring a goal or hosting a fest.
The winner will be the first person/team who brings the medallion to an Oswegoland Park District facility. The winning person/team must be able to identify the six secret locations of clues throughout the hunt in order to claim their prize!
Remember that the Medallion and clues will be found on PUBLIC PROPERTY – within or contiguous to Oswegoland Park District boundaries. Hunters do not need to dig up or climb up to find the Medallion or its clues. They may be carefully camouflaged or hidden within something easily accessible and not requiring disassembly. The chosen hiding places are always selected with safety and accessibility given the highest consideration.
The Medallion and its clues will not be hidden on any golf course, on or around railways, nor along the riverbank/ lake edges. No location will be selected that requires physical risk. Also, please be respectful of the property that you are on and considerate of your fellow hunters.
