LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) - The 2012 Oktoberfest Medallion Hunt is underway.
The contest runs from September 17th to September 26th or until the medallion is found.
We'll post each day's new clue here on wxow.com during Daybreak.
Here is Clue #1:
It's "All About Fest" this year,
Prepare your maps and head out with no fear;
The medallion hunt is once again the game,
Sift through all the clues to sniff out this year's claim.
Native names, a tool and color originate some of them,
For tourists and locals, these seven are a gem;
The main stream of transportation of years gone by,
The teens can make many things go awry.
According to the Oktoberfest staff, as in past years, the rules are the the same for those searching for the medallion. Here are the rules:
§ is always located within the La Crosse city limits.
§ is never buried in the ground.
§ is always on public property.
§ is accessible 24 hours, BUT posted hours should be observed.
§ fits in the palm of a hand.
§ may be camouflaged.
The person finding the official Oktoberfest Medallion should call the number on the back of the medallion. The finder must wear an official, current-year Oktoberfest button to collect the entire prize package, which includes $500 cash, two tickets to the Festmaster's Ball, several gift certificates, and a miniature replica medallion, compliments of Satori Arts. The hunt is sponsored by Wipfli, LLP. Gift certificates have been donated by Downtown Mainstreet.
