LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) – The annual Oktoberfest Medallion Hunt continues this morning with the seventh clue.
Each day at 6 a.m., fest officials release a new clue that leads searchers to the medallion. As in the past, the medallion:
- Is always located within the La Crosse city limits
- Is never buried in the ground
- Is always on public property
- Is accessible 24 hours, but posted hours should be observed
- Fits in the palm of a hand
- May be camouflaged
Here is Clue #7
At the turn of the century it was a fairly good site,
Then came the gridiron men who played with great might;
In the 30s they added comfy places to sit,
Eventually became a place where state high school students were a hit.
On the back of the medallion is a name and phone number to call to report it has been found.
Whoever finds the medallion wins gift certificates, Oktoberfest merchandise, a cash prize, and a miniature replica of the medallion.
To claim the prizes, the finder must have a 2019 Oktoberfest Admission pass and/or be wearing a 2019 Oktoberfest USA button at the time they present the medallion at the Oktoberfest office.
We’ll have the new clue each day here on WXOW.com and Monday through Friday on News 19 Daybreak every morning just after 6 a.m. until the medallion is found.
