Todd and Anita Messal,(Crosslake & Plymouth) Lois & Fran Marek (Faribault) and Bryce, Julie, Miranda and Devin Mead(Plymouth) were in their vehicles at 9 a.m. waiting for the 3rd clue to be released. After checking this area yesterday, they went back to find the medallion on the bank of the skating rink at the Crosslake Community Center. 

Congratulations!  Enjoy your prize basket of goods and certificates worth more than $1,000 from: Andy's Bar & Grill, Wine & Spirits, Barstock Liquors, The Cedar Chest, Costco, Crosslake/Fifty Lakes American Legion Post #500, The Crossfire, Crosslake Drug Store, Crosslake Eye Center, Crosslake Veterinary Hospital, Judy's House of Gifts, Lake Country Crafts and Cones, Lakes Area Gallery and Frame Shoppe, Lundrigan's, Maucieri's Italian Bistro, Moonlite Bay Family Restaurant and Bar, Moonlite Square, NMN Inc./Northern Lakes Embroidery, Northern Minnesota Railroad Heritage Association, Pine Peaks Restaurant and Gifts, Riverside, Savvy Mercantile, The Wharf, U.S, Army Corp of Engineers Crosslake Recreation Area, and Zorbaz

Clue #1
WinterFest is here, for the 11th year.
Our activities are many, so come from far and near.
Some people go South, but to the North we stay
Because Crosslake is such a fantastic place to live and play!

Clue #2
With so much to do - gather your group,
Radar Runs, Coloring, Skating or Soup.
One of these choices will be the one,
So bundle up and have some fun!

Clue #3
No need to use the steps or walk on the ice.
Stick to the slope, and think twice then thrice.
The cinders may be smoldering, but shouldn't have a glow.
To find the medallion look left and low.
