(6 am) 

Ready your compass, your maps and your pins – the hunt for my gold – it now begins!

(7 am)

County and Bounty is a wonderful rhyme… but City of Barrie will save you some time.

(8 am)

If you’re thinking downtown, you’re not that far away – but you’ll have to cross the line of the 400 highway…

(9 am)

If you’re trying to make your gold hunt worthwhile – set your sights on what some call Barrie’s Golden Mile.


Yes, it’s Bayfield Street, congratulations to all..now will you look in a store, or will you look in a mall?


5 or 10 or 15 or 20,-only the first 2 will get close to the money.


If you’re not sure quite yet – the situation is dire – but I’d set your sights near Canadian Tire.


Will you keep all the gold, or be tempted to share, with a thousand gold pieces there’s plenty to spare.


You’re now getting closer, don’t lose track of the prize, you might be easily distracted by burgers and fries.


A word of advice, and a handy one too, if you want my pot of gold you must first change your shoes.


Be sure to check your maps, be it google or rand McNally, for my gold could be hidden right up your alley


Be it iron or gold, you must strike when it’s hot, and to find hidden gold, you might hear strike a lot.
