Ely Northwoods Medallion Hunt
Find the Medallion and win $250! A total of ten clues will be released each day at 10:00 a.m. from February 1 through February 10. Clues will be posted at the Chamber of Commerce building at 1600 E. Sheridan St., on the Chamber Medallion website page, on the Ely MN Events Facebook page, and at participating Ely merchants.
The Ely Chamber Commerce Merchant Committee hosts the second annual Ely Northwoods Medallion Hunt, an annual event with a different, Northwoods theme each year.
But there are more chances to win!
Commemorative Wooden Nickels Drawings
Each participating Ely merchant will also have Northwoods Medallion Hunt commemorative wooden nickels. For every ten wooden nickels turned in at the Chamber of Commerce, you will receive an entry form for a drawing for four prizes: first place – $100 Chamber Bucks, second place – $75 Chamber Bucks, third place – $50 Chamber Bucks and fourth place – $25 Chamber Bucks.
No purchase necessary. Visit participating merchants often to collect a coin – one coin per person at each store per day. There is no limit to the amount of days you visit each store, so you can collect wooden nickels galore to turn in for an entry form for the drawings (just remember it takes ten wooden nickels to get an entry for the drawing).
2018 is The Year of the Bear!
The first medallion and commemorative wooden nickels will be etched with the likeness of our furry wilderness neighbors. Why not collect eleven wooden nickels, keep one for the start of your collection and turn in the other ten for an entry into the drawing?
