    Oct 2017 MTHA Open Hunt (Massachusetts)

    ----------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------

    The Massachusetts Treasure Hunting Association is hosting its annual John Govoni Memorial OPEN HUNT at Houghton's Pond in the Blue Hills Reservation in Milton, Massachusetts, near Boston [840 Hillside Road, Milton, Mass, Exit 3 off Route 128] See http://www.masstreasure.com/ for details, map and registration form.

    Date: October 7th, 2017. This is a Saturday event. You may sign up for the morning hunt, afternoon hunt or for both hunts.

    RAIN or SHINE ! (had a little rain last year, so what are the odds for 2017 ?)

    It is a "seeded" hunt on a fresh water beach and we have had participants from most New England states for several years.

    Cost: $60 for both hunts or $30 for the Morning OR Afternoon hunt (This is the EARLY registration price if your check and registration received by September 29, 2017). Price after September 29th is $70, or $35/hunt.

    Prizes include: Metal Detectors, cash, silver and coins, gift certificates and more. Last year's total prize value was over $3,000.

    Some equipment reminders:
    ~No sand scoops* or belt-worn sieve baskets allowed; only digging trowel or knife and two-part "nail" apron
    ~All entrants are required to use HEADPHONES.
    *sand scoop with handle allowed if you are disabled

    We'll be raking the beach before AND after the hunt (help appreciated). It is normally off limits to detecting, being DCR parkland, so we have a SPECIAL USE PERMIT for that day only.

    So charge up those batteries or bring extra Duracells and your lunch. NO Alcohol permitted on DCR Parklands.

    Bring your Hunt Flyer for Schedule and directions: LOST on the DAY OF HUNT? CALL 781-424-7472 (This is Sandi, our HuntMaster)

    Good luck everyone !

    This hunt is on October 7th 2017. I entered it correctly, but for some reason, it shows as Oct 6th on the Upcoming Events calendar.

    Update on the October 7th MTHA OPEN Hunt
    At our club meeting last night, Scott, our president, asked me to mention that in addition to the several raffles we will be holding during the day, there will be one final SPECIAL raffle after the close of the 2nd hunt. He could not tell me what it was, only that it was a "SECRET".

    Other raffles will be for:

    - 1 OZ Silver Rounds

    - An NEL 13" x 14" Storm Coil for Garrett AT PRO - Over $200 value

    - A quality Two-Barrel Tumbler
