Obvious homage to No Time for Cold Feet ~ "the holy grail of St. Paul". Confirmation that it's in a St. Paul Park? "Old sport" nod to F. Scott Fitzgerald and the Great Gatsby.

Oh boy! Time to noodle! Anagram anyone?
Also, has anyone else noticed the use of semicolons and colons? Clue 1 after the word hunt (:) and Clue 2 after the word do (;).  But no use in Clue 3.


Clue #3

Allison Wonderland
 

Here is the new clue:

No time, old sport, to play and cavort.
Pursue the grail with your schemes!
Out at night? Then follow the light
To cross the way to your dreams.

And here are the previous clues:

Clue #2

Stay away from links and risky hijinks.

Disturb not ground, tree or trail.

Don’t wait for last clue to know what to do;

This year you’ll figure or fail.

 

Clue #1

Be it turmoil endemic or global pandemic

It’s been a tough year for us all.

So rather than punt, we renewed this year’s hunt:

Join us, it’ll be a ball!

 

Don’t be odd, stay in your pod.

Keep six feet away from strangers.

Wear a mask when on your task

To keep all safe from dangers.

I just can't do it on Como

Please change my guess to 10 on Phalen for clue 2.

Perhaps a statue?


"Figure or Fail" Clue 2

alfabob1@...
 

I bet lots of people are thinking "fail"= Phalen. But, what do they mean by "figure"? Figure skating? Tax accounting or something similar for "figure"? A choice between 2 parks... figure? or fail( for Phalen)?


Park picks

alfabob1@...
 

Put me down for Phalen Park (regional) for this one Allison. All 10. My first pick was Swede Hollow before the clues came out and before there were 2 homicides discovered west of the park. Cancel that pick. Too dangerous!

5 on Phalen
5 on Oh No Como (this breaks my heart to even guess but this year I think they want it found right away)


Re: Clue #2

Allison Wonderland
 

I think you may very well be right in saying that this clue is telling us that it's in a very obscure spot, but the first person to that spot will be the finder. That would certainly be the way to set up a hunt during a pandemic.

This next clue is vague yet specific I think. Its telling us the basics of staying out of off limit places, such as the links, golf courses, could also mean stay away from parks with courses, and now that Frisbee golf is getting popular that may also come into play. The specific thing about this clue has me thinking that this year is going to be different, no digging around in the snow, no tree limb kind thing either, so my thought was its going to be right along an easy path and will be found easily...if you can get the area correct, and the writer is telling us this by saying you ain't got a shot if you are waiting around for the last clue this year. So usually you get the park, maybe...but then its a full on dig fest, not this year, just walk over maybe look under a bench and grab it kinda thing, which are always the first things searched in an area...this year is first come first serve maybe...

Re: Clue #2

To clarify something, I'm not saying the meter is strict this year. Just this clue. It was not true of Clue 1, but feels a bit forced on Clue 2, as if it were important that it be something specific.

The word choices definitely had me looking at meter - which David points out is very strict this year.

Speaking of the HF ‘07 hunt- perhaps “Join Us” is suggesting another “level land” —> cLEVELAND kind of hint.

The medallion will not be hidden on the State Capitol grounds, at Como Zoo & Conservatory, Rice Park, Mounds Park, under any skating surface, on a golf course, under or on any artificial turf surface, or at any construction site.

I believe IMP is off limits per the rules, but perhaps a cemetery is nearby.
