  • It will be found outdoors
  • It will be in an open area, not buried or hidden
  • It will not be hidden in a place more than six feet high

Clue #1 – Let’s start by narrowing this year’s search, For the 2017 Golden Raspberry’s perch! It’s going to be south of the Souba/Campbell line, But don’t go past Miller’s place, and you’ll be fine!
Clue #2 – Hilltop is too far north to say the least, And the beautiful Cottageville is too far to the east, Shady Oak’s waves are too far west, Near a benevolent place is where you’ll do best!
Clue #3 – Is it still too vague? This problem we aim to fix! Going past of the rail lines will get you in the mix! Narrowing down the location to help your plight; They undid the straightening to make things right!
Clue #4 – Let’s see if I can help your confused condition. Look to the east of the Davidson Addition! But not in the construction! Avoid their roadwork. From the top of the hill nearby is your perk!
Clue #5 – Final Day, so let’s make it simple. Steiner made us smile, so we show our dimples! But not too close to the dangerous arrows; Look in the grass where the park narrows!
