A SPECIAL THANKS goes out to all that helped set this event up. Numerous people gave up their time to make this a special day for everyone at no charge – this is how we are having a free event with great prizes.  If you see one of them say thank you. They should not be hard to spot – tired, blurred-eyes and mumbling to themselves.

If you are staying in the area after the hunt and would like something to do:
The following is what has happened in the past, no guarantee the following will happen this year. These outings on Sunday and Monday are not part of the Metal detector hunt, just something some people like doing and are inviting you along.

Sunday, September 16th

8:30am – The organizers of the event will be cleaning up the hunt field, tables, garbage, signs, chairs and shade structures so forth. If you can, we would appreciate the help.

A day trip to gold field usually happens. If it does occur we will announce it Saturday. Time and meet location is announced at the Hunt Field and at the Pot Luck on Saturday night.
