HORSE & WAGON SPONSORS:
SNOWFLAKE ORNAMENT HUNT SPONSOR:
Winter Walk Snowflake Ornament Hunt Official Rules
- This event is sponsored by the Northfield Area Chamber of Commerce & Tourism and is an official “Winter Walk” event. A brown metal Christmas ornament in the shape of a snow flake (3-4” in circumference) will be hidden within the Northfield city limits on public property. The general concept of this event is intended to mirror that of the Defeat of Jesse James Days Horse Shoe Hunt.
- The first clue will be revealed at 8am on Monday, December 5th, 2016. There will be up to four clues revealed one per day with the final clue on Thursday, December 8th, 2016, the morning of Winter Walk.
- If the ornament is not found by 5pm on Thursday, December 8th, 2016, the hunt will officially end for the year. The location will then be revealed and there will be no winner named.
- Clues will be emailed to KYMN Radio, the Northfield News and the Northfield Area Chamber of Commerce by 8am each morning of this event. Each will be asked to post to their websites, Facebook pages and for KYMN Radio to broadcast on air.
- The winner must be at least 18 years old, although anyone can help in the hunt.
- The ornament will be located on public property within Northfield and will not be buried. Snow precipitation after hiding may result in some snow cover. No digging will be necessary in the retrieval of the ornament.
- The ornament will not be hidden in any public Christmas decoration or display. Refrain from digging through any existing decorations.
- Should any damage to property occur while they are retrieving the ornament, the winner will forfeit all prize money and prizes.
- The Northfield Area Chamber of Commerce & Tourism or any participating sponsor, media entity or Chamber member is not responsible for any personal injury incurred hunting for or retrieving the ornament.
- There is no requirement to register or purchase anything to hunt. The payout is the same for all. There is no cost for this event.
- When the ornament is found, the winner must immediately notify Tim Freeland at 507-581-5038. Tim will arrange to meet you and confirm the ornaments authenticity. The final winner will be at the sole discretion of the hunt organizer.
- We encourage families to join together to work out the clues and search together on a possible new tradition.
- If you win, you must agree to be publicly named, your photo and name(s) on various local websites and a picture and write up in the paper with a representative of the Northfield Area Chamber of Commerce & Tourism, and a representative from the sponsor College City Beverage.
- The winner will receive $500 in Northfield Area Chamber of Commerce & Tourism Chamber Buck Gift Certificates.
- Everyone except the Northfield Area Chamber of Commerce & Tourism staff, hunt organizers, and their immediate family members are eligible to participate.
