  1. You're not looking for actual prizes, but something representing the treasure that is marked "Dog Days of Summer Treasure Hunt"
  2. It will be clearly marked and will have contact information where you can claim your prize.
  3. Group efforts are encouraged.
  4. If the treasure is found a post will be made on the Barkus and Meoux Facebook page.
  5. No sponsor or donor knows of the whereabouts of the treasure but are welcome to participate.
  6. Free to participate.
  7. To find the treasure you don't have to put your hand in a bee hive.
