Scott County Bounty — CLUE EXPLAINED - Johannes - 03-07-2020

CLUE #1
  • The first three lines of this clue direct hunters to "fields and courts" for "five" different "Fair-weather games" (in this case volleyball, skateboarding, basketball, baseball, and tennis), and nudge them away from ice "rinks," while the final line suggests the tokens' "aptly-named" shoreside hiding "spot" within Scott County: Lakefront Park—a place "in two ways antecedent" thanks to its name ("Lakefront") and its location at the edge of Prior Lake's namesake basin.
  • "This wintry soil is the perfect foil" is meant to suggest hunters search on the ground for the tokens—each wrapped in silver aluminum foil, with a corner peeking just out of the surface of the snow.
  • "Draw your lot" is meant to suggest Lakefront Park's several parking lots—specifically those near the volleyball court and skatepark, basketball court, baseball field, and tennis courts.
Winners:
Ed Brodie, Maplewood (Basketball Court)
Josh Ellingson, Apple Valley (Volleyball Court)
Shawn Gallahue, South Saint Paul (Baseball Field)
Kim Murray Bauer, South Saint Paul (Tennis Court)
