The search for the Oktoberfest medallion in La Crosse seems to be getting shorter every year...
Last year, the hunt ended after only five days...and this year, a 20-year-old searcher from Chaseburg discovered the prize after just four clues.

The medal was hidden under leaves at the footbridge in Houska. Manske wins two tickets to the Festmaster's Ball and 500 dollars in cash.
