Finding the gold egg in the age 7 to 11 area at Roche Harbor's Annual Easter Egg Hunt proved extra difficult on Sunday, April 1, 2018. The two youngest age groups found the gold and silver eggs in their gardens and were waiting to be awarded their prizes but the older kids were still scrambling. Even a hint that the egg was hidden in a specific corner of the pavilion's patio didn't help.
Pieces of the egg were finally discovered by Millie Nibbler of Friday Harbor. Someone had found it earlier and dropped it.
The winners were:
0 to 3 age group:
Gold - Abby Berkin of North Samich
Silver - Chaylynn Garcia of Friday Harbor
4 to 6 years of age:
Gold - Simone Kline of Friday Harbor
Silver - Shep Stookfburry of Victoria
7 to 11 years of age:
Gold - Millie Nibbler of Friday Harbor
Silver - Katelyn Rezabit of Friday Harbor
The jellybean counting contest was won by two young men - Marcus and Cameron - who were clever enough to calculate their answers using pi. They both came up with 1,178 and each won a $100 bill. One of them also got to take home the jellybeans.
