Noodle Park Mini-Hunt — CLUES EXPLAINED
#1
CLUE #1
(given to AllisonWondrland inside a "Merci" thank you note that referenced the French theme of his Mock Hunt).
  • "A Worthy man"/"Mappy" is Steve Worthman, who goes by MapGuy, or Mappy, and uncovered the Saint Paul Winter Carnival Medallion this year, and a cool ten grand.
  • "Joe" and his "daughter" were this year's finders of the Allison Wonderland Mock Hunt Medallion, and winners of a $445 "door-prize
  • "another clue" is not only meant to suggest the mini-hunt's second clue, but that a whole new hunt lies in the offing—The Great Twin Cities Treasure Hunt—revealed for the first time at the end of this one.
  • "A dish you didn't bring today" references the pot-luck nature of the Rehash Bash, and "Home" "plate" at Newell Park's lone baseball field (the location of the second clue).

CLUE #2
(found attached to a wiffle ball at home plate of Newell Park's baseball field)
  • "fine-looking" is meant to suggest "Fair-view" Avenue.

  • "monster" is meant to suggest the next clue is attached to a toy "Grave Digger" monster truck.
