Gold Star Auto & Wave Wireless
Flag Day $500 Medallion Hunt

The Medallion has been found.
It was in one of the parking stop at Harrison Auditorium.


Today you get clue number one;
Come join me now we’ll have some fun!
Search high, search low, search all around;
On 506 or City ground.
Be nice and don’t tear up the town;
I’m just sitting waiting to be found.
This year I did something new;
That’s all you get for this clue.


Where to look? Oh where to go?
I’m sure that you would like to know.
I might be different, you will see;
If you ever do find me.
Go to a place with lots of young folks;
Then you should be getting pretty close.
Things here could spin or they could slide;
Figure this out and that’s where I hide.


You’ve gone around and done your best;
But still can’t find out where I rest.
One way or another; here and there;
You say I do not play fair.
High and low; bottom and top;
Perhaps it’s best that you just stop.
Should you go left? Or maybe right?
Guess what? I am in plain sight.


Three types of these is where I’m near;
So let this clue help take you here.
First would be a place of speed;
Now listen up and then take heed.
Some made by bears with painting pails;
And last an iron horse on rails.
Near danger you will never be;
On your quest to go find me.


Today might be your lucky day;
With the number seven we will play.
A seven on the north you’ll spy;
And a seven to the south, Oh my!
Look out; now here comes the riddle;
I’m in a seven in the middle.
If you want that Flag Day cash;
You’ll need to bolt when you dash.

Good Luck!!
