Clue #8: Monday, July 4, 2022

Start in the parking lot for the new dog park & archery course
Walk west through the barriers and fork left at the post. Follow that path into the woods
Once you hit the woods, go about 125 yards (375 feet) on the trail, first west, then curving south.
Turn right off the trail near a clump of about three large trees growing together
(You'll be in line with where the Crow does a U-turn)
Walk about 30 feet west from those trees along a downed tree that ends at a stand of dead trees
The Chip is stashed inside/beneath the downed tree, on the north side, near where it meets the stand of dead trees.
The Chip is wrapped in camouflage tape. You'll need to feel and look hard!


Clue #7: Sunday, Jul y 3, 2022

Flummoxed again?! Thanks for staying rooted
Let no barrier stand in your way
To clear your mind, try a rhetorical question
Where is the chip hidden, you ask?
"Left, into the forest," I nod
Stay true to the trail, though it may grow camouflaged
Feel your way - look close, then look again
Dead wood does not bend
375 is important, so is 30
Find the Chip, and you'll be laughing all the way to the banks.


Clue #6: Saturday, July 2, 2022

Befuddled by the clues? Together, we grow mightier
Fork left and go the distance
Be prepared to bend your expectations
And launch yourself into the winners' circle


Clue #5: Friday, July 1, 2022

Start a Fluid Connection at the Delano Fourth
But you'll do a U-turn when you're getting close
From there, you can see the tops of the trees
Don't go too far south, or you'll tire out!

Clue #4: Thursday, June 30, 2022

Follow your nose to find the right trail
On the site of a former excavation
Three evergreens will get you started
Look Hard and you'll win a gold star!


Clue #3: Wednesday, June 29, 2022

Why celebrate in Delano?
The food, the rides, and the games, of course!
Find your way towards a new development
You'll do a 180 when you find the chip


Clue #2: Tuesday, June 28, 2022

To grab the chip, follow one of Delano's newest Drives
That will get you close
Our city is certainly growing and expanding
But we still commemorate and observe the Fourth.


Clue #1: Monday, June 27, 2022

Delano is a place where Minnesota comes to celebrate
But there's much to do behind the scenes
Community spirit sculpts its way through town
Find the chip and you'll be the star of the show.


The granite chip is 3 inches wide by 2.5 inches tall and pays homage to the city's motto and Delano Granite Works. It is hidden somewhere on public property within Delano city limits. Please be respectful to property and to others when hunting for the chip.

Find the chip and redeem it for a $200 cash prize?

The hunt will begin Monday, June 27.

Clues will be released at 9 a.m. each morning on the Delano Senior Center Facebook page, the Delano Fourth of July Facebook page, and in-person at Delano Senior Center
