Oktoberfest Medallion hunters: Hone your skills for clue kickoff Monday

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – It’s that time of year when Coulee Region gumshoes must sharpen their wits to match them with the clue master for the annual Oktoberfest USA Medallion Hunt, which will begin Monday.
Oktoberfest officials will leak one clue a day at about 7 a.m. Clues and rules will be posted on Oktoberfest USA’s Facebook, Instagram and website. The 10 clues will roll out for the hunt, sponsored by Altra Federal Credit Union, until the medallion is found or all 10 clues are used, whichever comes first.
Whoever finds the medallion will win $500 cash and a souvenir medallion courtesy of Satori Arts. The back of the medallion includes a contact name and number to report that it has been found.
Oktoberfest USA requests that all medallion hunters respect public and private property (as well as their fellow hunters) while trying to locate the medallion.
Oktoberfest in La Crosse will take place from Sept. 30 to Oct. 3.
