Treasure Hunt Clues

Clue #2 - Sunday, June 20

Bakers count more so let’s add one not north.  This place is near copse and the rill.

The mead degree zero will make you a hero for contrasting off of the nil.

Consider the span and the ginnel you can.  Seven and five before tells.

 

Clue #1 - Saturday, June 19

There’s no misdirection with this Reconnection! The Fest is abuzz all around!

For those most-courageous who unmask the contagious, your prize will be hunted and found.

With patience and laughter I’m a Treasure sought-after by leaders who you know abound.

 

Special thanks to ABC 6 News for sponsoring and supporting the Rochesterfest Treasure Hunt.  Watch ABC 6 News Good Morning for daily clues at approximately 6:40 a.m.-6:50 a.m. (tune in early so you won't miss it!)  All clues will appear here, on this page, each day at approximately 7:00 a.m.

FOLLOW THE RULES AS WELL AS THE CLUES.

This year’s treasure is a special acrylic medallion, hidden somewhere in the city of Rochester and on public property (but not on a golf course or cemetery) and NEVER on private property that might appear open to the public. It will not be hidden on public land that would be dangerous to search (roadways, etc.)  You will absolutely know if you find it!  Once found, it must be exchanged for its bounty.

Search, but please don't destroy the natural beauty of Rochester or the Treasure hiding place!  Each day's clue will bring you closer to the treasure's location, and it will be evident once found!

Where, oh where would a Treasure hide? We have a pretty good idea where it has been hidden in past years, but where will is surface this year? We've also found some terrific motivation from other area Treasure Hunts. Want to see what we see? Visit the Pioneer Press Treasure Hunt or Red Wing's Medallion Hunt during River City Days to see if it helps. (Probably not.)
