The Hidden Treasure: The treasure will be hidden in an easily accessible place on public land. It will not be buried. Do not dig up the beach or any other spaces or places. It will not be on private land. Your team will receive a treasure map & poem on November 4th. If you can solve it, you will find the treasure.

What if someone finds the treasure? The treasure will not be hidden until November 4th. If a team finds our treasure before Sunday afternoon's closing party, the hunt is over. We will keep this page updated and you can check in periodically to see if anyone has found the treasure. If the treasure has been found, the "x" on the top of this page will disappear. If no one finds the treasure, it will be added to next year's prize. There is only ONE treasure, so the first team to find it will win it!


**Keep your eyes on this page for updates and hints as well, leading up to November**

Teams: You will need a team of four to find our treasure. Our $5,000 cash prize can be taken by the winners, or donated to their favorite charity in their name.
