Here we go!! Clue #1 to be released on Monday, August 31 at Noon!
The official disclaimer for the 2020 Pepsi Marigold Medallion Hunt – Changes have been made due to the unintended destruction of property in recent years. Please be attentive and protective of all property.
The Pepsi Marigold Medallion WILL be found on PUBLIC property—either within or contiguous to city boundaries, or property owned by a Pekin public body.
It is NOT hidden in any seasonal plantings or landscaping in Mineral Springs Park or elsewhere, on any golf course, inside the PCHS stadium’s fenced area, inside the Dragonland fenced area, inside any school facility, or on the property of the Pekin Archery Range or the UAW High rise. While it might be hidden on school property, it will not be hidden in shrubs, bushes, or plantings immediately against the schools. The Medallion is NOT hidden within the landscaping at the Pekin Public Library or in close proximity to the Pekin Federal Prison's perimeter fence.
Hunters do not need to dig up or climb up to find the Medallion. It may be carefully camouflaged or hidden within something easily accessible and not requiring disassembly. The chosen hiding place is always selected with safety and accessibility given the highest consideration.
Finally, be on the watch for Poison Ivy and Poison Oak, and PLEASE, be respectful of others' property as well as your fellow hunters.
