Fans of fiendish puzzles, sharpen your wits: the 2011 is Golden Queenie Conundrum is about to launch!

The cryptic clues - the key to discovering the whereabouts of the precious Golden Queenie - are contained in the programme for the 2011 Queenie Festival, which will be available in newsagents around the Island from Wednesday 8th June.

This is the third year that the highly popular treasure hunt, sponsored by Celtic Gold,  has been staged in the run-up to the Festival, which this year takes place 1st - 3rd July. The conundrum is a test not only of wits but of speed, as scores of
determined treasure hunters will all be working simultaneously to crack the clues and race for the prize: a solid gold Queenie shell worth an estimated £5,000.

Last year, the Golden Queenie was claimed by the Thomson family of Douglas in record time so this time around, the clues have been given a twist to make the challenge the toughest yet!

Tim Croft, festival organiser, says, "Somewhere in a secret location, the
Golden Queenie awaits the lucky winner of the hunt - but who will it be?

"Over the last few years, we've found that the conundrum really captures the public imagination and we're hoping that this year, more people than ever will take up the challenge.

"As well as being in the programme, the clues will also be published in the local press and on the festival website from the following Monday (13thJune)".

"But to give yourself a head start, be sure to grab a programme as soon as you can. As well as the vital clues, it's got the lowdown on this year's festival, so you can start planning your weekend of fun and great food by the sea. Good luck - and happy hunting!"
