Congragtulations to Michelle Hacker, Joy, Davis, and Rebecca! Their tenacious tracking and deliberate deciphering enabled them to find the medallion for the second year in a row!
There will be a total of ten clues released each day starting February 7 to lead hunters to the medallion. Tune into WELY at 9:30 a.m. each day for the Early Bird release of the clue! If you miss the WELY broadcast, the clues will also be released each day at 10:00 a.m. They will be posted at the Chamber of Commerce building at 1600 E. Sheridan St., on our website page (www.ely.org/medallionhunt), on the Ely Chamber of Commerce Facebook page @ElyChamberOfCoommerce and at participating Ely businesses.
The first one to find the medallion will win $500.00 in Chamber bucks!! But there are more chances to win!
Each participating Ely merchant will also have Northwoods Medallion Hunt commemorative wooden nickels. For every ten wooden nickels turned in at the Chamber of Commerce, you will receive an entry form for a drawing for four prizes: first place - $100 Chamber Bucks, second place - $75 Chamber Bucks, third place - $50 Chamber Bucks and fourth place - $25 Chamber Bucks.
No purchase necessary. Visit participating merchants often to collect a coin – one coin per person at each store per day. There is no limit to the number of days you visit each store, so you can collect wooden nickels galore to turn in for an entry form for the drawings (just remember it takes ten wooden nickels to get an entry for the drawing).
2020 is The Year of the Deer!
The medallion and commemorative wooden nickels will be etched with the likeness of our furry wilderness neighbors. Why not collect eleven wooden nickels, keep one for your collection and turn in the other ten for an entry into the drawing?
