There’s Yeti ‘round these parts … and we need your help tracking ‘em down!

The Great Minnetonka Yeti Hunt is on! (And, of course, there are prizes!)

Here’s how it works:

Over each of the next four weeks –starting Dec. 31! – stuffed Yeti will be placed in specific Minnetonka parks:

Dec. 31-Jan.6: Big Willow
Jan. 8-13: Minnetonka Civic Center/Jidana
Jan.15-20: Victoria-Evergreen
Jan. 22-27: Purgatory
Each week, it’s a different park AND a different riddle that the Yeti will help you solve.

Each Yeti is decorated with a letter of the alphabet. The total number of Yeti in each park corresponds to the number of letters on the riddle answer sheet each week.

Find each Yeti, record and unscramble the letters to solve the riddle.

Email your weekly answers to Recreation Superintendent Ann Davy by 5 p.m. each Thursday for a chance to win a $25 gift card.

At the end of the entire month, unscramble the gold-boxed letters on your answer sheet to uncover the Yeti’s grand secret message. Submit THAT answer by Jan. 28 for a chance to win a $50 gift card!
