Our Annual Fall Open Competition Hunt was an amazing success Saturday, October 13th! Thank you to Hunt Master Mike Alldredge, all of our officers, dedicated members, and Hunt Sponsors who helped us to have the biggest and best open competition hunt in our club's 37 year history. The weather cooperated perfectly during the hour-long hunt but kicked up quite a bit once all the participants were safely under the pavilion. :) I believe that everyone who attended had fun and I received several compliments on behalf of our club after the prizes were awarded. 52 hunters attended!
The winners of the 3 new detectors our club gave away were:
* Pete Airheart - Garrett AT Pro Metal Detector with Z-Link Wireless Headphones
* Craig Mitchell - Garrett Ace 400 Metal Detector
* John Flemming - Tesoro Mojave Metal Detector
Here are some samples of the compliments we received.
This one arrived in our club's mailbox from Michael and Suzanne Feltis,
from Terrell, Texas, who are members of the Fellowship of Christian
Treasure Hunters. The second was posted to my Facebook page by Pete Airheart who won the Top Prize - a brand new Garrett AT Pro metal detector with Z-Link Wireless Headphones package.
"Your Message : Dear Fellow Treasure Hunters,
We really enjoyed the hunt today.
The rain held off just long enough, thank God.
Hope to see you at the Garrett Hunt in March.
Fellowship of Christian Treasure Hunters "
Thank you all once again for this enjoyable event and get ready to have even more fun in the remaining weeks of this year as we are lining up activities for our members and are beginning a Big Membership Drive to recruit more people into our club and into the fantastic hobby of treasure hunting.
