The first clue for the 2019 Bar-B-Q Days Medallion Hunt is published below. Additional clues, if necessary, will be published in the July 10 and 17 issues 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, 952-454-6492.
Addison Bachand found the 2018 Bar-B-Q Days Medallion Monday, July 2, 2018, while goofing around with a friend, Brandy German, at the community pool site. The accidental find netted him $100 cash.
Bar-B-Q Days 2019 Medallion Hunt
Willy Nilly, don’t be silly, the hunt has begun,
Bling-bling, what’s the thing? Worth it in the long run.
Put on your Duds, a song by the Judds, I’m green with envy,
Excitment in the air, don’t be a square, come join the frenzy.
Go for a dip, you’re the man, bring your fins, get a tan,
Look for the star, how bizarre, stick to the plan.
It’s our Independence, be in attendance, the fourth of July,
Holiday perks and fire works, free as a butterfly.
I before E, except after C, why is this so feathery?
Our favorite three days, repeat the phrase, time to be care free.
One lonely place, on lightning pace, our little puzzle,
Pick a duck, try your luck, pick a U4IC and guzzle.
I’m caught in the middle, solve this riddle, it’s part of the count,
A Benjamin is the prize, keep your eyes on your fries, it’s quite an amount.
In need of a spark, go to the park, cotton candy Randy,
Corn on the Cob, burgers from the Hog, have yourself a shandy.
A single red rose, strike a pose, as in a statue
Year sixty one, join the fun, come to my rescue.
McAdoo will do, Mikan I’m Likin, O’Neal and Russell,
You are the captors, the champs are the Raptors, let’s see some hustle.
