Club Picnic & Hunt
We held our Annual Picnic & Club Hunt at the
Gallatin City Park on October 17, 2011. It was cloudy and cool
all day... Perfect for metal detecting !
Together with many family members we all had a great time. It's
all due to the hard work of our club officers, committees and volunteers
as well as those who support our funding projects during the year. Let's
not forget either all of the folks who either contributed or solicited
for the absolutely great prizes we continue to give away each year.
The date for next year's Club Hunt & Picnic has been set for
Saturday, October 12, 2012. Arrangements have been made to have exactly
what we had in 2011. For a map to the Gallatin

The Rules of the Hunt
1. The hunts are open to all members, but not to their families
unless they have a family membership. The family memberships
are $25 instead of the $20 for the single membership. One may
still obtain a Family Membership at the October club meeting
by paying the extra $5.
2. All treasures will be buried in shallow ground, i.e 1 1/2 to 2
inches below the surface, so be sure to use a small digging
tool. Please do not forget to cover your holes.
3. Please stay off the fields while the coins/tokens are being
planted, unless of course you are part of the team doing the
