The MILUG Treasure Hunt came to an end on October 17 and we want to thank everyone who participated! There were 201 people who completed the treasure hunt and likely a few more that started it but didn’t finish it (we heard that a few of the clues were a bit challenging). We also want to thank the Country Club Centre Marketing Director and the 13 merchants who hosted a hidden LEGO model at their store. Everyone who completed the treasure hunt and submitted their clue card was entered into a random draw for some fantastic prizes courtesy of Country Club Centre. The random draw was done by the Country Club Centre Marketing Director and the winners have now been contacted.
Here is a review of the clues and the hidden models! They are presented in the order of the letters associated with the hidden phrase when unscrambled! What’s that phrase? — LEGO IS AWESOME!
