Winter Rec Fest



The 2014 Winter Rec-Fest Medallion was found Thursday morning.

The medallion was secured to a tree by the eastside parking lot by the Harry J. Olson Senior Center on the North Side of La Crosse.

Jonathon Craig, of La Crosse, found the medallion and will receive $500.

Events for the 28th annual Winter Rec-Fest run through January 25. Admission is a Rec Fest button, which costs $2.

Here were the clues to find the medallion:

Clue #1:
Winter Rec Fest 2014!
Escape the house when the clues click.
The flake is hidden for your search…
Just beyond a William Holden Flick

Clue #2:
Places to park, but rules to obey
And speed limits do apply
Doors galore in your view
And Santa's exit route is just nearby

Clue #3:
Don’t look for the flake south of Jackson,
But find a reminder of where flowers grow.
Stand by the big river and reverse Horace Greeley.
You’re cold where the waters flow.

Clue #4:
Think safety and hunt on city property
Although private land is close at hand.
The initials P.C. can offer a hint.
And you might hear a wooden shoe band.

Clue #5:
A place to shoot hoops around the bend,
So don’t bother with any lofty place.
Find the white triangle and count to ten.
When the clues link, you’ll have a happy face.

Clue #6:
One utensil is plain to see.
Find it and your quest gets a lift.
Stop signs and hydrants can be found.
You can vent, but don't get miffed.

Clue #7
Hours for something are clearly posted,
But you can track, I presume, by day or night.
You’ll see a fence that goes nowhere.
Plus, a religious presence in sight.

Clue #8
A sporting color centered between red and white.
Then make a connection for par.
A round window way up high
And family street names not very far.

Clue #9:
Think of a city other than La Crosse
And a famous baby born in 2013.
Clint’s detective is making it easy.
Now find the right tree at the scene.
