The Treasure has been found!  
Marlin Bodle of Crosslake deciphered the clues which lead him to The Wharf.  He found the treasure hanging from a tree bough and cashed in on a Treasure Chest valued at more than $750!

Clue #1

Crosslake Days is almost here
Chili, a car show and a garden with beer
Kids games and arts & crafts to celebrate the fall
Get your souvenir bandana and come enjoy it all! 


Clue #2
 Over the bridge you should go
Towards the sunset you could row

Ahoy you Mateys, wishing treasure to see
The channel may guide you here, a pleasure it will be.  


Clue #3
The crow’s-nest or lighthouse may not guide your way
Treasures aren’t in hide outs, this you must obey!
Parrots, Geese and Sea Rays are all around
Spot the schooners bough and the treasure can be found
