The Mythical Medallion Hunt

Beware of the fog…

Why is Sand Creek Charlie searching this waterway at night;

lore has it that he is hunting for an object just out of his sight.

He has sadly lost something  close to his heart;

a mythical item from past, and unknown for the most part.

This item was hidden by those with a devious plan;

the item’s value untold, represents the soul of this man.

So if you are brave enough to help join this search;

hunt near the water, in the parks and scour the earth.

Be careful where you look, for is rests on public land;

the search is not dangerous, nor is there slight of hand.

And if you find his treasure, his mythical piece;

you’ll be $500 richer and put his soul at ease.


The Sand Creek Charlie Mythical Medallion Hunt, sponsored by Pro Fencing, begins on Friday, June 30, 2023; when a hand-crafted medallion will be hidden on public property somewhere in Newton. Clues will be released on the Sand Creek Summer Daze Festival Facebook site at 9:00 a.m. every morning until the medallion is found. The medallion will be located on public property within the Sand Creek basin and surrounding areas. It will be located in an easily accessible spot. LOCATING THE MEDALLION DOES NOT REQUIRE THE DESTRUCTION OF PUBLIC PROPERTY. Please review and follow The Mythical Medallion Hunt, sponsored by Pro Fencing, rules below for complete guidelines:

Once Sand Creek Charlie’s Mythical Medallion is found, it must be turned into festival personnel. An email with your name, and phone number must be sent to GREG@SANDCREEKSUMMERDAZE.COM

Sand Creek Festival, Inc or Pro Fencing will not answer questions regarding the Medallion search. Medallion hunters can access the clues on the Sand Creek Summer Daze Facebook page. If the Medallion is not found by midnight, the Saturday of the festival, the search is declared over. The resting spot and clues will be explained soon after the festival on the festival site.
