On February 13th we released a riddle to give potential Scavenger Hunt competitors a chance to learn 1 of the 20 tasks for the upcoming 2nd Annual Putter King Miniature Scavenger Hunt before the release of the official list on March 1st, 2012.
On the 21st people sing to me
67 years free I be
Not one of fifty but still part of one
On this land a course built for fun
Take out your brightly colored golf ball
Cross the Golden bridge but don't hit the Great Wall
The answer to the riddle is: Island Mini-Golf Adventure located in Guam, USA.
Clue #1: The latitude and longitude coordinates of Guam are written on the map of the island
Clue #2: "On the 21st people sing to me / 67 years free I be" - Guam's Liberation Day is July 21, 1944
Clue #3: "Not one of fifty but still part of one" - Guam is not one of the 50 states, but is still a U.S. territory
Clue #4: "Cross the Golden bridge but don't hit the Great Wall" - If you type "Guam minigolf" into Google, you would find Island Mini-Golf Adventure's Facebook page in the top results. Here you can see pictures of the course which features the Golden Gate Bridge Hole and the Great Wall of China Hole.
Congratulations to Pat Sheridan (last year's 3rd place finisher) for getting the correct answer. Although we had a few close guesses, Pat was the only one able to successfully solve the riddle. He chose task #20.
