Clue No. 6 – Thursday, Feb. 21
You’ll see if you choose
To study the clues.
There is a recurring trait.
Find the wide open space,
Or you’ll lose the race,
Before you are out of the gate.
Clue No. 5 – Wednesday, Feb. 20
Hunting’s not for the weary,
But aim high, don’t be leery.
Success will take more than a peek.
Your persistence will show.
Ask the neighbors, they know.
Rewards come to people who seek.
Clue No. 4 – Tuesday, Feb. 19
This circle, it’s clear.
Might be missed when you’re near
Look hard to make sure you don’t fail.
You can’t find the loot
Without wearing your boots
To succeed, you must stray from the trail.
Clue No. 3 – Monday, Feb. 18
This park’s meant for play.
Bring the kids out today.
Many hands will help make your work light.
A crew’s what you need.
Just stay out of the reeds.
Hundreds wait if your search is just right.
Clue No. 1 – Saturday, Feb. 16
A real winter with snow,
makes it more fun to go.
Outside for this fest of the flake.
You don’t yet know where,
But these clues will lay bare.
So get out and go search Forest Lake.
Clue No. 2 – Sunday, Feb. 17
Like a needle in hay,
Will you find it today?
Depends if you’re in the right place.
We set it, but then,
Will we go there again?
Figure out and you’re leading the race.
Clues will be posted each morning until the medallion is found. The medallion is a clear, acryllic circle with the FLake Fest logo etched into the front. It measures four inches in diameter and is approximately 1/2 inch thick.
