Sunriver Resort Report


Contest rules and participation instructions for the Sunriver Resort St. Patrick’s Day event.

On Sunday, March 16th at 11am the hunt will begin for the Oregon leprechaun’s pot of gold! Every week in the four weeks leading up to the hunt check in to the Sunriver Resort Facebook page for the weekly clue! Each clue is a hint to a hint to where the pot of gold will be hidden around Sunriver. Hang on to these clues to get a leg up on the competition. The prestigious pot of gold will be filled with prizes including jewelry, overnight stays at Sunriver Resort, gift certificates, swag and more – valued at more than $2,500! Each of the four hints will also be provided the day of the hunt, but those leprechauns are tricky. And this one really knows how to hide some gold. So charge your GPS, whip out those trekking poles and metal detectors… the ultimate search for the pot of gold is about to begin!




How To Participate:


1. Follow the Sunriver Resort Facebook page where every week from 2/20/14-3/14/14 a clue will be posted that will give you an idea of where the pot of gold will be hidden. Share the posts and contest information with your friends, this leprechaun is known to hoard a big pot of gold that is easily split and being on a team could give you a leg up.


2. Additional incentive hints will be provided to those who share photos on Facebook and Twitter of their tactical planning in the weeks leading up to and during the day of the hunt. Use #SunriverResort and #LeprechaunGold to ensure your posts are seen!


3. The official hunt will begin at 11:00am PST Sunday, March 16th, 2014 at the Sunriver Resort Main Lodge where you’ll pick up the day of envelope of hints.


4. The first person to find the pot of gold hidden by our sneaky leprechaun gets it! The pot of gold is valued at more than $2,500! This leprechaun is pretty crafty though and has hidden dozens of booby-prizes around Sunriver filled with smaller prizes, new hints and some quintessential duds.
