I hope MN Red found the medallion, as well. Congrats!

I'm hearing more reliable confirmations that it was indeed found in Highland (even if I was sure it was Phalen). That being the case, the winner of the Park Pick Pool, (with a perfect score no less!!!) is MN Red! She gets the $100 prize as soon as we can figure out how to get it to her.

I was pretty much there. There is a walking path between the holes right south of the Edgecumbe bridge and I think it was on the western side of it. I was digging on the eastern side of it and a couple without any tools were looking around. They split up and then met back up and I saw something get flashed between them while I was around 30 feet away. They then took off.

That’s where I went tonight as soon as the paper came out. And I knew as soon as I got there that it would be found tonight. Mad props to the finder!

I don't want to rain on the finders parade so I'll let them elaborate, but I got a call a little while ago from someone I trust saying that it was at Highland in the ravine near the bridge where Edgecumbe turns east off of Hamline.

Coming Up...

So if it was indeed found and the hunt is actually over, I want to point out some upcoming dates before people scatter...

This Sunday, starting at 11:30 we will be having our annual Rehash Bash at Newell Park. It's a potluck event that takes place indoors at the Newell pavilion. We have door prizes and entertainment as well so it is usually a good time. It will be over before 3pm so you will have plenty of time to get to your Superbowl parties.

Then in March keep an eye out for The Allison Wonderland Mock Hunt. It is another 12 clue hunt written by me. The prize is not as large, but if you need a hunting fix, this will be your chance. I will post the details about it in this group and on Facebook sometime soon.

After some research (not being a golf player) I have discovered there is something called a pitch shot which is the opposite of a chip shot. A chip shot goes in the air for a bit and then rolls. A pitch shot goes in the air for a while and then doesn't roll very much. Technically though a putt is never a pitch as they are two different shots so I'm still a little lost there. 

Going back to clue 3 I see now I missed something. Doffing your cap is almost certainly a reference to Clarence "Cap" Wiggington as Clarence St. next to Phalen.

Hey secretrose,
We should have stuck with Highland all the way. Putts that are pitches could refer to disc golf. There's is the ped. bridge that crosses Montreal Ave. And hunter's itches reminds me of this Irish song I heard at the Irish Fest once. This 'Scottish' version is from some Renaissance Fair. Makes me think of Highland Fest/Games. Could the Circus Juventus fit some of these clues?

Clue #10
A lover’s fix under tangle of sticks
The medallion scratches hunters’ itches.
Where bridge spans a gap; nearby a trap.
Line up putts that are pitches


Re: Clue #10 - 2020

What if pitches was Frisbee golf and trap is trapeze? I couldn't find anything on clue 9 at Highland but there was  Griggs (coal man) street 2 blocks north. We still don't know the park. BV, SH, Phalon, Como most likely. That is a lot for being so late.

This is what I thought of for a lovers fix under a tangle of sticks (fix meaning marriage)
Bride and groom walking through a wedding tunnel of hockey sticks

Yeah if it has golf (putts) then I think we are back out at Phalen and the trolley clue 6 was spot on. Pitches made it still seem like BVNS was still in it, bridges, yeah, but the putts, that may have killed BVNS and Harriet unless they put in a mini putt somewhere like Como? Or it could be a trick for like puttsing around, or Grumpy Old Men ya (Putts) Putz? But if its golf, a Phalen we will have to go. Follow that trolley!
