Olfest Puck Hunt Rules and Clues

Somewhere within the city limits of Northwood nestles a puck; another one hides elsewhere in Worth County.  Either of the Ølfest Pucks earns the finder $25 in Worth Brewing Bucks.

Clue Day 1: The City Slicker likes to be in a central location. His country cousin prefers a park setting. 

Clue Day 2: Take a stroll down the walkway and you may find a Worth Brewing Bucks payday. It won’t take a scholar to find a dollar. 

Clue Day 3: Our friends are in a snowy lair, but just below the surface to be fair.

Clue 4: Our Puck Buddies enjoy park views. Our City friend has a panoramic vista from the ground, the country cousin sits above it all.  

Clue 5: Some of our pucks’ favorite tunes: Bridge over Troubled Waters and Stairway to Heaven.  

Clue 6: All the worry about being found has made our city slicker bushed. His country cousin is just grillin’ and chillin’.

Clue 7: Last Day Clue: It’s not Worth looking east of Hwy 65.




Michael Bachtle discovered the city puck on Clue Day 6. It was at the base of the southernmost bush, next to the stairway by the Stromstein Building on Central Ave. in Northwood.
