March Madness Medallion Hunt Begins
Yes, it is that time of the year when crazed, cabin-bound citizens scramble outside to begin the March Madness Medallion Hunt. The event, now in its fifth year, is a scavenger hunt for a metal medallion. Clues will be posted on the bulletin board at the Buckeye Recreation Center every Monday morning in March at 10 am. They will also be posted on the Buckeye Recreation Center website, www.beechrecreation.org.
The individual who finds the medallion first will win a $25 dollar gift certificate to the restaurant of their choice on Beech Mountain. If you find the medallion, bring it to the Buckeye Recreation Center to claim your prize. If the medallion is found before the last Monday of the month, we will start a second hunt with new clues and prizes.
Good Luck and let the March Madness begin!
CLUE # 1
March is here and the hunt has begun,
Find the medallion hidden beneath the sun.
Stay within the town limit and in a public spot,
Look high and low and you may get hot.
Clues are posted every Monday in the Buckeye Lobby,
This is a serious game for some, not just a hobby.
You will find the medallion in plain sight,
No digging required or extra might.
Park, shelter, creek, trail or playground,
Are perfect places for the medallion to be found.
Good luck, search fast and keep a good pace
Remember my friends this is a race!
