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 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.

Today’s clue is as follows:

Both colleges are great we tell you no lies

But one of them has the thing that you prize

The building you seek doesn’t have a roof

It’s a source of fun and the fans are the proof.
