The first and second clues for the 2019 Bar-B-Q Days Medallion Hunt are published below. The final clue, if necessary, will be published in the July 17 issue of the Herald.

The same rules apply as last year. The search area includes all of the Belle Plaine city limits. It is not located north of the railroad tracks. A map of the city limits is available on the city’s web site.

The medallion is located on public property and is not more than six feet off the ground. It is not on the Hooper-Bowler-Hillstrom historical house property or inside Tiger Park baseball field. Those searching on foot are encouraged to use the tunnel to cross Highway 169.

The medallion is about two inches in diameter and has "Belle Plaine Bar-B-Q Days" inscribed on it. The prize for finding it is $100 in Belle Plaine Bucks.

If you find it, call Don Meger at 952-454-6492.

Addison Bachand found the 2018 Bar-B-Q Days Medallion Monday, July 2, while goofing around with a friend, Brandy German, at the community pool site. The accidental find netted him $100 cash.
