THE EGG HAS BEEN FOUND!


We repeat, THE EGG HAS BEEN FOUND!

More details coming in Tuesday's Herald-Dispatch.

Thanks to Travel Doctors for sponsoring this year's contest!

The Egg is still out there!



It sounds like a lot of people are hunting! The egg has NOT been found yet. Keep looking!

We would love to post some photos of egg hunters on their quest. Please email them to acopley@herald-dispatch.com. Be sure to include the first and last names of everyone in the photo. Your hunting location does not have to be revealed (unless you want to try to throw someone off! Fair is fair -- there is a nice trip up for grabs!

First clue published!


The first clue is in the books! (Well, really, in today's newspaper!)

What does a peanut using binoculars have to do with the Easter Egg Treasure Hunt Contest? Absolutely nothing. Just a reminder that NO clues will be given out on this blog. Egg hunters must get their clues from the daily edition of The Herald-Dispatch. The blog is an extra way to have some fun with the contest -- as well as to alert egg hunters ASAP to when the egg has been found. So, keep checking back!
