    Could you post where the 2017 medallion was found? We are all wondering!

    We truly enjoy hunting for the medallion, it’s fun to work with friends and family. As you stated it’s fun to see all the beauty Chaska has to offer. That being said I have a few problems with this years hunt. First of all we feel the author was more interested in misleading the hunters than leading them too it, which takes some of the fun out of it for families. Secondly, the place the medallion was hidden was not located by any of the beauty in Chaska, in fact it was in a dangerous place for children. Broken glass, empty beer cans, old clothes. We were there when young family found it so we know area. Show the beauty safely. It’s a fun experience and we will continue to do so, just my thoughts I took away this year.

      Thank you for your comments, the hunt only gets better when we hear from participants.

      Each hider and writer gets general instructions as to where not to hide the medallion. One of the criteria is not in or near water. The other is to make accessible to kids as well as parents. The hiders (each one new year to year) do their best to put the medallion in a safe location. One of the first things the writers have done is mention to keep Chaska Beautiful-which to me would mean, there may be garbage around. General caution should always be taken when on the hunt each year. As to what is written in the clues is totally up to the writer. If they pick a theme (I believe it was Coopers this year-from what I gathered on the clues), it is up to them where they take folks or which direction. The goal is to teach about Chaska and I for one learned about the history of the markets in Chaska. I am still trying to figure out the numbers referenced in some of the clues. The clue writer did send some notes at the end and these are posted for all to see as to where their head was at when writing. I as the mediator of the hunt will take extra caution as to setting the guidelines when hiding. I have had teenagers and grade school kids hide and write the clues as well as Grandparents and new folks from town. I also invite you to hide or team up with the hider next year to hide and or write clues. It is a fun event and I am happy that you and your team hunted and hope to hear from you soon.
