KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -
UPDATE: Guldan gave an exclusive tip to WVLT morning team- The answer to blank 15 is “Second”.
Matt Guldan with Summit Sports Training Center says he wanted to get people out of the house, off their phones and away from their screens. He decided to start a treasure hunt using his own money.
“I thought back to when I was a wee boy and that things that captured my imagination and I thought of hidden treasure,” said Guldan.
Guldan says he hid a treasure chest somewhere in a public access spot with gold and silver inside. Whoever finds the chest can call Matt to trade it in for $1,000 or a year membership at Summit Sports Training Center.
He released a riddle with 26 missing words. Each week he is giving a clue to what the word is. He expects that people can narrow their search based on these clues.
“If I can get kids more excited about this than their phone, we’re heading in the right direction,” said Guldan.
