Central Texas Treasure Club


                 Central Texas Treasure Club
This year's CTTC Open Competition Hunt was held on Saturday, October 12th, at Allcorn Park, at 4th Street and Indian Creek Drive, in Brownwood.

What a wonderful morning of fun we had at out CTTC 2019 Open Competition Hunt in Brownwood Saturday! By the end of Registration, we had a total of 66 Hunt entrants, compared to our record number of 51 at last year's Hunt! I've heard and talked to many who attended and they all said they had a great time. Thank you to all of our friends from around the state who made the trip to Brownwood and supported our club with your attendance. We proved, today, that the health of the sport and hobby of metal detecting in Texas is excellent and that metal detecting/treasure hunting clubs are, as they always have been, the backbone of this hobby.

If anyone who attended our Hunt took photos, please share them on this message board for others to enjoy. I appreciate those of you who have already posted your photos.

Our next club activity will be our Annual CTTC Picnic on Saturday, October 26th, at Comanche City Park in Comanche, Texas.

Our club meets on the first Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. at the Early Chamber of Commerce Bldg. at 104 E. Industrial Blvd. in Early, Texas.  Next regular monthly meeting will be Tuesday, November 5th.
Our re-order Central Texas Treasure Club t-shirts and our order for the NEW "Can I Metal Detect Your Yard" t-shirts with our large club logo on the back have arrived (photo of front is on this homepage).  Price per shirt is $15 for dues-paid members and I'll have them available at our October 1st meeting or if you can't wait, contact me (Jay Longley) and we'll find a time when you can pick yours up at my home in Brownwood.  (325)646-1000.

                                ATTENTION: METAL DETECTOR DEALERS!
                                              Become a CTTC Sponsor !

Our club is seeking two Prize Sponsors who will fund our monthly Door Prize Drawing and Special Event prizes. Some benefits of becoming a CTTC Sponsor is that you can place one ad for your business on our club's Facebook page, we'll include one ad in every monthly newsletter and we'll include a photo ad of your business on our club's official website for the duration of your sponsorship.
This is an especially good opportunity if you own a metal detector dealership because I have several people each month ask me who they can buy a detector from. Currently, since we have no detector dealers as sponsors, I have no one to refer them to.
The cost of becoming a Sponsor is $120 per year. One sponsorship fee will be used to fund our Top Door Prizes every month and the second sponsorship fee will be used to purchase Special Event prizes.
