A gnome will be hiding somewhere in Westward Ho off of the Wildcat lift!

Go searching for it and bring the gnome to us at 5pm during the Chili Cook Off at the Goldminer's Daughter Lounge.

Clues will be posted on Facebook! So be sure to like us and you will have a heads up on the gnomes hiding spot.
