Woodbury Days returns Aug. 23-25, 2019, and preceding the city festival is the start of the annual medallion hunt, co-sponsored by Edina Realty-Baden Real Estate Group and The Bulletin.
The lucky finder of the medallion will receive a prize of $200 in gift cards if they have a Woodbury Days button, or $100 of the prize without a button. Medallion hunters are asked to immediately call 612-327-1748 when the medallion is found. The Bulletin will feature the winner in an upcoming edition. For more information on Woodbury Days and where to buy a Woodbury Days button, go to woodburydays.com.
New this year, medallion hunters can gain fame by sending their selfies to firstname.lastname@example.org. The best selfies of the day will be posted on the Woodbury Days Medallion Hunt Facebook page. Follow the hunt’s official Facebook page for shared ideas on the meanings of clues and a few new twists and prizes along the way.
Clues will be revealed daily Wednesday through Friday, Aug. 14-16. If the medallion isn’t found by Friday, Aug. 16, more clues will resume from Monday through Friday, Aug. 20-24, or until the treasure is found. Clues will be posted 11 a.m. at rivertowns.net. There is no longer a medallion hunt hotline.
The first eight clues provide a clue-within-a-clue leading hunters to a different city park each day. Solving the clue-within-a-clue qualifies you for an early look at the next day’s clue – go to the local park of the day by 9 a.m.
Present the medallion to the sponsors to claim the prize.
Clue writer Mathias Baden is a Realtor at Edina Realty, former editor of the Woodbury Bulletin and a Woodbury resident.
Clue No. 1
This year’s story starts here.
Take selfie, send to win.
Look under, over, in.
Call sponsor, don’t tarry!
Long time ago in a
Galaxy you know best ...
Finders/Kings can take rest
Where Woodbury Days is.
Stick to park boundaries
While medal you beseech.
Refrain from overreach.
May the Force be with you!
