Waynedale Shamrock Search Announces Game Clues!

Are you ready to find that pot of gold in Waynedale yet? From gift cards to gift baskets, many prizes are up for grabs in the new community-wide “Waynedale Shamrock Search” game, announced in the previous edition of The Waynedale News. While there might not be an actual pot of gold for you to win, hundreds of dollars of prizes will be won by those who choose to take on the free-to-play and win challenge. This fun way to encourage exploration of the area was organized by local volunteers, The Waynedale Community Improvement Team and passionate business owners.

Simply put, to play this community-wide game, solve the riddles each day of the week leading up to St. Patrick’s Day (March 13-17), and they will take you to area businesses. Each day, there are new clues to solve leading to a different set of businesses. Those who answer each riddle correctly by stopping into the corresponding business will receive a shamrock (one per person 16+). Then, any time before Friday, March 24, participants can redeem shamrocks at the Waynedale Library (2200 Lower Huntington Rd) to win an immediate small prize (free cookie or personal pizza while supplies last) and enter a raffle for a chance to win larger prizes donated by local businesses. The more shamrocks you collect, the more entries you will have to win the large prizes.

If you solve any of the following clues, stop into that business on that day to receive a shamrock! There are clues for up to 3 businesses per day. Some clues are challenging, but there are a lot of $$ in prizes to be won! Pictures of prizes & more will be posted to Facebook.
