    Oct 20, 2019 ~ MTHA Open Hunt (Massachusetts) Announcement

    Official Announcement (posted 7-Aug-2019)

    The Massachusetts Treasure Hunting Association (MTHA) is hosting its annual 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]

    Date: October 20th, 2019. This is a Sunday event. You may sign up for the morning hunt, afternoon hunt or for both hunts. Go to this MTHA link for Hunt Details and Registration options.

    New for 2019:

    ~ Name change for 2019 is the "Fall Silver Search"

    ~ All Full-Day registrants (Morning AND Afternoon hunts) qualify for entry into a drawing for the DOOR PRIZE of one Minelab Equinox 600 detector, a $650 value.

    ~ For the first time, we will have ONLINE registration at our web site as an alternative to mailing in a registration form with your check or money order. Online payment is via PAYPAL or credit card. If you register online, you may also want to print the paper registration form which has directions and a map to the hunt site.

    ~ By request of former attendees, we are seeding with large amounts of silver. Paying for the entire day is a greater advantage.

    ~ We are limiting the number of full day hunters to 80. They will be eligible for a door prize (see above). If we do not have 80 hunters we will allow walk-ins on Oct 20th at a higher fee. The number of registered attendees will be available to see online.

    RAIN or SHINE !

    This is a "seeded" hunt on a fresh water beach and we have had participants from most New England states for several years. Last year, several Friendly Metal Detecting Forum members participated and from the feedback on this forum, had a great time and were looking forward to this year's event.

    Some equipment reminders:
    ~ No pinpointers or large, oversize searchcoils
    ~ No sand scoops* or belt-worn sieve baskets allowed; only digging trowel or knife
    ~ 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 batteries 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)

    Also, check the MTHA Web Site from time to time for updates, as the prize list grows. I will also post these as I receive them from Sandi, our HuntMaster.

    Good luck everyone !

    Just heard from our Hunt Master Sandi yesterday. We have 20 folks registered already for this hunt.

    Remember, the club is limiting the total number of "full day" hunters to 80 this year.

    Prize list update

    At our web site's Hunt information page, there is a tabbed section at the bottom, that Sandi will be keeping a growing list of prizes as we receive dealer & manufacturer donations and club purchases. See: https://registration.masstreasure.com/

    Here's a list I've copy/pasted today (August 7th) and is in addition to all the SILVER that will be seeded on the beach and the DOOR Prize of the Minelab Equinox 600:

    Hunt Committee is busy obtaining prizes as the hunt approaches. These will be prizes for tokens planted by the club in the sand. Equal amount of prizes and value for morning and afternoon.
    •Sampson Shovel
    •AT Pro Detector (AM Hunt)
    •Predator Tool
    •Lesche Tools and Pouches
    •Manufacturer Donated Bling (t’s, pouches, totes…)

    MORE Prizes Planned:
    •Donated Silver Coins by Club Members
    •“Instant” Cash in the Ground
    •Garrett Pro-pointer (“carrot”)
    •First Aid Kits

    SPECIAL 2:00 PM [GOLD Coin]
    As we did last year we will be planting a limited number of special tokens in the second hunt field. If you find one you may use it to enter in the 2PM hunt with one prize, a gold coin. (If you find more than one special token you can give it to another hunter who did not find one.)

    Good luck everyone !

    I’m told this event has been awesome in the past years. I signed up for both hunts, should be a great time had by all. If any of you western Massachusetts guys want to car pool in there, I’m more than happy to drive just let me know a few days prior.
