Membership Form

If you have a metal detector and never attended our annual hunt (or any hunts at all) you are encouraged to attend. Prizes range from Metal Detectors and gold pans to hats and shirts and everything in between. The competition is laid back, everyone is friendly (no, we don't bite!). Novices have just as much a chance of winning the big prizes as seasoned pros, and often do!

There will be a potluck both days for the lunch break. Please bring a dish to share.

You can bring your camper and stay the night at the fairgrounds, but no dogs are allowed anywhere in the fairgrounds. If you plan to stay the night you need to let Cathy L know as soon as possible. There are no RV hookups.

As always, members are encouraged to make things or gather donations from merchants to add to the hunt prizes! Every little bit helps make the hunt more interesting. If you have anything to donate please contact Cathy L above as soon as possible.
