I've reserved the Carnegie Room of Brownwood Public Library for our club's Introduction to Metal Detecting workshop. Thursday, June 27th, from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. Instruction and valuable metal detecting tips will be given at this workshop that will benefit beginners and longtime treasure hunters alike. We will also have a Question & Answer session. This workshop is FREE and OPEN to the public! If you or someone you know has a detector that they need help learning how to use, invite them to this event. CTTC Membership applications will also be available if you have prospective new members you want to invite and you want to get credit for referring them for your chance to win the 1889-D Morgan silver dollar prize which will be given to the member with the most new member referrals during our August 6th meeting. I will be presenting the program but I need some other experienced members to assist me so if you want to help, please let me know.


Our "Introduction to Metal Detecting" program for the Boy Scouts Troop 14, this afternoon Saturday May 4th, was a huge success! The Scouts, parents, and CTTC members all had a great time. The Richardsons donated a new Garrett Ace 250 metal detector to Troop 14 so all the boys will have a chance to have fun with it on their camp-outs and other activities. Mr. and Mrs. James Lemond also donated a Harbor Freight 9-function metal detector which was given to the lucky winner of a free raffle for the boys and other nice prizes were donated by our individual members for the raffle too. In addition, each Scout took home 2 silver dimes plus all the coins they found during the field demonstration. A great and memorable time was had by everyone in attendance and each of the Scouts went home with a fascination with this amazing hobby, a CTTC membership application, and a copy of the Metal Detecting Code of Ethics.
Our re-order of our standard 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 July 2nd 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.
