Clue #6

He was great in a pugilistic movie classic;
And remember that Tarzan had his pal.
There's a noun in there somewhere.
The most studious will research it well.

Expand your field of vision.
Observe everything in all directions.
Consider how useful are commodities,
That create the basis for your detection.

Clue #5

You've had an exercise in mathematics;
Perhaps some geometry eventually applied.
They are signs for your deliberation.
Continue slowly and note points denied.

The holiday is nearly upon us.
How long with this hunt go on?
Seems like it will last forever.
It could happen if I pull off this con.

Clue #4

Here comes the use of more numbers.
Ten and seventeen point five.
Another step toward my combinations,
And watch for the times I derive.

Remember to look closely for subtle changes;
Colors of the environment and a rider in France.
Lines that seem to run in consistant allignment;
For no other purpose except to enhance.

Clue #3

Five score and the lucky plus one,
A veritable compilation of numbers.
Throw in the use of colors,
Knowing evenings do not encumber.

Walk diligently counting twelve then thirty-four,
It's all in how you look.
Dash around but not too swiftly,
Or your assistance could be easily mistook.

Clue #2

This year you'll need to do your homework,
Technology useful in your study.
Winning titles and seeking summation,
While being respectful of your hunting buddies

As a detective you look for oddities.
But the hunter looks for themes.
Better to examine the evidence carefully,
Thinking as directly as this writer deems.

Clue #1

Hard to believe it's here again,
That time to pull you in.
While there are many ways to decipher,
There's only one path that yields the win.

Some only share abundant facts and figures,
Until you can't tell the forest from the trees.
So much available to work with,
Finding ways to add to hunting memories.

Medallion Found!

Part of the great 2012 Pepsi Marigold Medallion Hunt mystery has been solved!  An 11 year-old camper from the Pekin Park District's summer camp program found the original 2012 medallion near the Soldwedel Program Center.

You might recall the 2012 Medallion was discovered missing from it's original hiding spot after Clue 6 was revealed.  But no one called by the deadline, so a replacement medallion was hidden in the same spot and the hunt continued.

Many theories were given on the disappearance.  The most likely explanation was that an animal drug it away, and that appears to be the case.  Watch for more information on the story of the 2012 medallion in the next few days.

The first clue for the 2013 Pepsi Marigold Medallion Hunt will be released on Monday, August 26th.
