Rec Fest medallion found


LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW)-- The hunt for the Winter Rec Fest medallion is over.

Paul Hoch  found it Tuesday, outside the Main Street library, under a bush. Hoch is no stranger to medallion hunts and found the Oktoberfest one back in 2011. But, he says it took him longer to find this one. The clue about the number 13 is what led him to the medallion.

"All the clues were written really well. I didn't really figure out they were leading to books until yesterday," Hoch said. "And I was driving by the library and I saw the park was established in 1903, that added up to 13."

Hoch won a $500 prize.
