Day 1 – Snofest Clue

Let’s play a game this Snofest week

It’s a variant of good old hide and seek

I’ve hidden a medallion that must be found

It might be on the ceiling or maybe the ground

It could be inside or outside in the snow

You’ll need to look hard, so on your marks. Get set. Go.

 

Day 2 – Snofest Clue

Is the medallion out in the cold or inside our walls?

You may need to roam both the sidewalks  and halls.

If you are swift, you might win the prize.

The answer is probably in front of your eyes.

Merriam-Webster’s defines swift as great speed

But what other knowledge will you all need?

 

Day 3 – Snofest Clue

It’s a wonderful day to be paired with a twin.

Turn your search indoors if you want to win.

Your cousins might help you along on this quest.

Your relatives are among this town’s very best.

Can you plow through and beat other teams?

There is more to this little clue than it seems.
