Man, I guess they werent kidding when they said the 2 girls from last year ruined it by hunting early.

This year there IS NO HIDING THE ROCK !

They are putting it in a box, and dropping 103 ping pong balls over Lakeview Park on December 15th. There will be a mad dash to pickup a ping pong ball, IF you get one, you get in line, and they give you a code.

1 code will open the box that has the rock in it. Winner gets 2 IPOD minis.

Cool prize, but this is a BIG dissapointment. The scavenger hunt is the best part. It is what made it fun!!! Follow the clues, get outside and explore the town, it was a HUGE success. And last year ruined it.

I am literally shocked that they are doing this. Its very disapointing.

It is on, BUT they arent hiding it this year. On December 3rd they are gonna "drop all the info", and "spill the beans", as the commercials say, one commercial even says this years contest is gonna be better and "higher" .....

I already found out all the info. They are litterally NOT hiding it this year. On Monday December 3rd they are going to announce that they are flying a helicopter over Lakeview Park on December 15th at 11:00am. And dropping 103 ping pong balls, if you get one, you then get in line, and get a code and 1 code opens a box on a table that holds the rock. LAME

They have jumped the shark, and officially taken the fun out of it this year. The town was abuzz and out searching every year, it was a blast....SOMEONE at Star has made a bad decision.

They actually hid the rock last year a little early, and then started the contest december 1st, but 2 girls were hunting 2 weeks early, and misteriously found the rock on like the 2nd day. But to be fare, it wasnt hid that well. It was at river view park, which is a tiny park, on the edge of a pile of sticks. The DJ were not to thrilled when the 2 girls said on air that they started 2 weeks ago, and DJ stated on air that it would prolly cause changes.

I dont want to sound rude, they are really nice people at star, Im just disappointed. The clues, and the hunt was the best part. They could have hid the rock really good, did some clues, and then did the helicopter drop, which gave the main oing pong winner get a major clue or something. But to take away the hunt is sad. Especially after they built such a big following to this contest. and after last year really wasnt a contest at all. They had a chance to make this year awesome, and they just took it away. I would guarantee there will still be a big crowd, but a "Mad Dash" for ping pong balls removes alot of people from the contest immediately, such as older folks.
what a shame

My friends and I go searching every year for this; so I am BUMMED if what you say is true. Shame on Star for taking all the fun out of it for those of us who DO abide by the rules. And what a lame prize...unless you meant to say iPAD Minis- in which case it isn't so bad after all. Still, with my bad knees I don't see myself fighting over a ping pong ball for a 1 in 103 shot at a prize. At least you had to have some smarts to play the game when it was a scavenger hunt; now you have to risk getting trampled. It's not worth it, and if this is the route Star is going to go I will be really upset.

I think it's amazing how you have no clue what your talking about. I was with the winners last year and let's make a couple things clear: first- they did not start 2 weeks early (impossible bc 103 would never put it out til the day before): sencond- the 2 girls had just as much right as the next person to find it( they hunted for years , as did everyine else) third- if they didn't abide by the rules they would not have won: fourth - I have the recording from the winners last year and your comments are false.
Everyone needs to quit acting foolishly and realize Frankfort is a tiny town and truly I don't see how They were going to keep Hiding it. That's why their changing things . The hunt was so easy for the girls bc they were smart and narrowed down the only place left and didn't not start looking until the 2nd clue. And to add these girls have 9 kids between them that also enjoyed looking with their moms , so the negative comments need to stop bc y'all have no clue what is going on.....
Man, Shame on Frankfort and their rudeness .. What a town !
Except change and others happiness , or you'll live sadly with your on hate !
Thanks!

By the way : lucky they are changing it bc them girls an their kids were good hunters and they would've been out there again today! ;)

Star 103.7 has taken the fun out of it this year! So many people were gearing up for the hunt. Its just a shame, guess your ratings will be down since so many people would be excited to listen for the next clue each morning! Whos lame idea was this anyways?

They can't call it a rock anymore. There isn't even the diamond prize.
