Attention all treasure hunters and metal detecting enthusiasts! Get ready to uncover the ultimate prize with the the Ok John Metal Detectors Token Hunt!

OK John MD has hiden 12 marked tokens around Winnipeg and surrounding area of Manitoba for people to find. These tokens will be buried in public parks, public beaches and other public areas. We have included photos of the tokens so that you all know what you are looking for. Prizes have been selected in advance for each token. All you need is a little bit of knowledge and a horseshoe for luck to come across one of these. There are a few rules that must be followed for this contest. We can’t be held responsible for you digging a hole in the Winnipeg Blue Bombers stadium while looking for a token. That’s just crazy! Don’t do that!

Make sure to read the rules before joining the hunt!

Good Luck everyone!
