There will be a 50/50 split the pot, new tip boards with silver and new bags of gold panning gravel with some nice pickers in them.

May 21st 2013 Meeting at the Chugiak Sr Center 6:30pm (Updated 05-20-2013)

Bring your detectors (and a warm coat)!

Second clue in the Mystery Treasure Hunt will be given out. Remember, they are only given out at the meetings and no clue will be printed in the newsletters or repeated. If you missed the first clue, maybe you have a friend who will tell you, if they don't want to keep it a secret for themselves!

There will be tip boards for an ounce of silver and a 50/50 split the pot (last month's winner made $40!) and Gold Panning bags for sale. All proceeds go towards putting on hunts and purchasing prizes.

We will have the finds of the month board so bring anything and everything you have found to be judged for the best finds in Jewelry, gold, coin, relic and "what's it?". It doesn't have to be outstanding, fancy or perfect to win, just the most interesting as voted on by members present. An uncirculated presidential dollar will be awarded for best find in each category.

We will also have the X marks the spot competition. See how well you can pinpoint a penny hidden under a piece of cardboard for 50 cents a try, try as often as you like. Winner splits the proceeds with the club. This is fun and challenging. We will also have a "what's it?" board you can run your detector over to see if you can identify the items hidden in it with your detector. This is just a fun test of your skills and detector.

If you have any donations for the June hunt please bring them to the meeting or at least let me know what you have. There is still time to get out there and hustle up more prizes! There will be cookies and coffee, but if you want you can bring a snack.

See you there!

The third clue in the mystery treasure hunt will be given out Sunday at the lunchtime meeting.

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, pinpointers 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.

As always, everyone is also 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 the secretary as soon as possible.

We will need help with setup on Saturday morning. An empty truck bed will be helpful for setting up road signs. There will be a prize drawn from the names of people who sign in to help before 8:20 am. Get there early!
