Medallion Hunt Clues

The 2013 Medallion Hunt is under way. Follow the clues to find the medallion and win the $200 prize! 

Clue #1

Which of you can hunt the best?

The rules abide, the clues devour
If you aspire to victory, use brain power.

Posted will be the clues each day
Listen to what they have to say.

Thus the plan will be revealed.

Don't dig, destroy or deface
But keep on pushing to keep the pace.

Clue #2

Jolly Old Chris, he knew best
Leaving behind all the rest.

For life's variety, you must struggle
While the rules, you must juggle.

At the commencement Merry (& Bill) could not fly
So a search, they did try.

I say go, as did Tom, a noble quest
There's much to gain
now is not the time to rest

The shepherd, he minds his flock
Sharing, caring, he does rock.

Clue #3

Daddy works, Mommy too.
Working, working, all for you.

Food and baseball, Summer's delight,
What you seek is close to sight.

Louis and Henry gave us both
Boon and bane--to part, we're loath.

Solve these clues for proximity
The medallion is in the close vicinity.

Clue #4

As you seek, so you'll find
The medallion is one of a kind.

Nearby you'll find your goal
If your hunger you do control.

When Magi call and children spy,
The gift gaily comes--veiled to the eye.

If the smell of charcoal you sniff,
Closely look to find your prize in a jif!

Clue #5

Look left, then right and follow your nose
Is this a walk that nowhere goes?

Black and white and shades of beige
Is winning the goal or just the rage?

Football heroes will if you let them
Even in the movies, they Bend like Beckham.

Look up, then down and finally below
See the encased treasure, your eyes will glow.

Notes and spaces, a melody you'll sing
Protection from detection is no longer it's thing.

Now that you have it bring it to me--
$200- happy you'll be!
