CLUE #1:

The Medallion Hunt starts today!
In Sauk Rapids city limits you’ll have to stay.
It’s quite possible it’s in a park,
But please don’t go searching after dark.


CLUE #2:

In order for the medallion to be found,
You don’t need to climb or dig underground.
There’s lots of green space and year-round fun
There are colors so bright, they shine in the sun.


The Medallion was FOUND after the 2nd clue!

Here are the rest of the CLUES:

CLUE #3:

Things that are round can often be found
When kids are busy at play
There’s plenty to do and parents know too,
There are benches to rest by the way.

CLUE #4:

On the north side of town is where you should head
For the treasure is nestled in a little dark bed
Say hello to a neighbor who’s not far from view,
But don’t climb the oak tree, whatever you do!

CLUE #5:

If your searching continues with bewildered dismay,
And your anxiety is over the ridge,
Don’t fear! Here’s another clue for today,
Try to think like a sleuth, just a smidge!

CLUE #6:

A warm invitation is coming to you
To find the treasure and WIN!
But you’ll have to search extra hard
Look down, look under, look in!

CLUE #7:

So many places to search, not by school or by church
And the roads seem to curve all around.
There’s a post in the center to use as your mentor
It’s getting obvious of where it’ll be found!

CLUE #8:

If you’re into rock and a little bit roll
There’s a stone to focus your eyes
Of all that nature conceals underneath
You’re close to finding the prize!

Curt and Sandie Cook

who live in Sauk Rapids and found the Medallion at Oakridge Park

under the warming house, under a rock.

They received $500 for finding the Medallion

during the 2023 Rapids River Days Medallion Hunt.
