WEAR and West Florida Medical Group DeLuna Treasure Hunt Winners Announced
Pensacola, Fla. (May 7, 2013) A four-member team, and five-time victor, has won the Fiesta of Five Flags DeLuna Treasure Hunt. The men, all lifelong Pensacola residents, are thrilled to have received the grand prize of a genuine Spanish Reale on a sterling silver necklace valued at $2,200 provided by Jewelers Trade Shop as well as $1,500 in cash.
“We get together every year for the treasure hunt,” said Tom Pace, 42, one of the winners in the foursome. “I guess you could say we enjoy spending the time together, learning about the history and getting our families involved,” he said. Pace added that the hunt becomes increasingly exciting towards the end when the final clues are announced. “Everyone is rushing out to get that last clue.” Pace, along with his brother Jim and friends Patrick O’Neal and Mike Keethler, “plays to win,” and that is certainly evident considering he’s been a part of a winning team four times before winning this year: 1990, 2001, 2002 and 2004. He says there’s no secret to his success except old-fashioned resourcefulness. “We spend a lot of time downtown and behind computers researching and working,” he said.
