Today’s clue for the Medallion Hunt

The President’s Day Weekend Winter Festival Annual Medallion Treasure Hunt, sponsored by The Maple Inn at Chautauqua Institution, is under way.

The 3×5-inch Treasure Hunt Medallion has been hidden somewhere in Chautauqua County on public property. Placed in plastic for its protection from the elements, the Medallion bearing the I.C.E. logo is not hidden below ground level and no higher than 6 feet above ground level. It is not hidden on any body of water or in the water. Treasure hunters seek at their own risk.

Today’s clue is as follows:

If you are holding a map and it is pointing northward

Turn it around then you can move forward

Heading toward the bottom of the lake will be nice

But don’t worry you won’t be out on the ice.
