Become a CTTC Sponsor !

Posted by [email protected] on January 18, 2019 at 7:55 PM Comments comments (0)

Our club is seeking two Door 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.

CTTC Meeting January 1st!

Posted by [email protected] on December 31, 2018 at 7:40 PM Comments comments (0)

Hi Members! I hope each of you are preparing to have a wonderful and productive New Year in 2019! Our club is going to start it off on the right foot because our regular monthly meeting fell on New Year's Day this time.

Meeting will be at 6:30 p.m. at the Early Chamber of Commerce Bldg. at 104 E. Industrial Blvd. in Early, Texas.  Visitors are always welcome and encouraged to attend!  Free refreshments available at the meeting.

We are going to have a very busy meeting Tuesday night as we have two contests ending (Pop-Top Challenge & Member Recruitment Contest) and prizes will be awarded to the winners of each.

Because we have so much planned for the meeting, we will not have an after-meeting program.

Our club t-shirt order came in this month so we will have at least 2 shirts in every size available at the meeting. Cost is $10 each but the bill came to $124 because the 3XLarge shirts cost $13 each. We also came up $10 short for a Large t-shirt after the last meeting because Travis collected $10 for one but both of the remaining Large shirts were gone when the meeting was over. We will also entertain a motion to raise the prices for our next order of t-shirts (probably in March or April, 2019) to $15 per shirt. That way, the club will make a little money for our treasury and we won't be forced to raise prices on the larger sizes which many of our members wear. They will all be $15 each.

If your CTTC Membership Dues are due in January, 2018, please remember to pay them at this meeting. Everyone is current on their dues except for one member whose dues were due last October. If those dues are not paid by the end of January, that member will be removed from our Members Roster. There are 6 of us whose dues are due in January. I'm one of those so I'll be paying mine before the meeting starts.

Member Recruitment Contest. The member who signs up the most new members, who pay their dues by the end of the January 1st meeting, will win the Brilliant Uncirculated 1964-D silver Kennedy half dollar. New members that you recruit must write your name, as the referring member, on their Membership Application form in order for that member to be counted in your total. I'm not eligible to participate in this contest. In the event of a tie, for example two members both recruit 1 new member, we will start the contest all over for the month of January through the February 5th meeting, and every member's referral number will drop back to 0 so that every one has another chance to win. Remember that every new member who signs up and pays their dues at this meeting will receive a free treasure book by Charles Garrett. These books were generously donated by Garrett Metal Detectors.

As always, we will have a Marble Draw at the end of the meeting and the person who draws the red marble first will split the pot 50/50 with the club. And we will have a Door Prize Drawing for a beautiful silver Franklin half dollar which is the 1st Prize and 3 more additional prizes for the runners-up.

Be sure to bring your best metal detecting finds for this month to the meeting and enter them into our Finds of the Month Contest. We are all starting out with -0- F.o.t.M. points so now's the time to get on the board!

Support our club by attending meetings and participating in our numerous events and activities for 2019!

Hope to see you at the meeting!

Newer Isn't Always Better

Posted by [email protected] on December 17, 2018 at 9:40 PM Comments comments (0)

While I was at our Brownwood Public Library today, I decided to check out their computer card catalog for books about "treasure". I was surprised to find several on the subject that are decades old. I read most of them many years ago. I checked out 3 of them for old time's sake - "Let's Talk Treasure Hunting" (1994) by Charles Garrett, "The Complete Guide to Treasure Hunting" (1973) by Norman Carlisle and David Michelsohn, and "Treasure Hunting Around the World" (1960) by Thomas Helm.

Long before the Internet came along, these old books, treasure and old western magazines, and treasure hunting newsletters got me hooked on this amazing hobby. The Internet was a revolutionary marvel but when it comes to treasure hunting, it's really a pitiful failure. Sure, it's packed with videos and forums about modern metal detecting but it mostly dwells on smaller treasures like individual pieces of jewelry, old relics and coins, and, of course, who has the latest, most complicated, and most expensive metal detector and other modern and bothersome accessories. Don't get me wrong, I love hunting for these smaller treasures too. In fact, I go out seeking them almost every day when the weather is nice but there's nothing that gets my blood pumping faster than to read about searches for legendary lost treasures or the recovery of a post hole bank or buried and lost cache of gold and/or silver coins. The Internet is sorely lacking in these types of stories and it's almost useless for researching them.

I feel a bit sorry for younger treasure hunters or those who have just gotten into this hobby, in the last 20 or 30 years, who have never been exposed to the people and the treasures that gave rise to metal detecting and "modern" treasure hunting in the first place. The best I can do for the younger th'ers (as we used to call ourselves) and late arrivals is to regularly tell them about or post about the good ole days of treasure hunting and encourage them to take time to look back and study the beginnings of this healthy and fun pastime. I guarantee that you'll benefit greatly from doing so. Also, visit your local library and see what books they have available on old school treasure hunting. You may be amazed at what you find and what you learn.



2 Days of Detecting & Pop-Top Challenge

Posted by [email protected] on December 16, 2018 at 9:40 PM Comments comments (0)

I've enjoyed about 4 hours of metal detecting the past 2 days. Yesterday, I hunted with another treasure club friend and we found several WW II relics and I even found two pieces of very old American Indian pottery while detecting. I went out alone today, to a different site, and found 21 modern pennies, a quarter, a Ford car key on a rusty key ring, and some more pop-tops to add to the baseline number to exceed in order for our Central Texas Treasure Club members to be eligible to win this month's Pop-Top Challenge. The winner will receive a very nice 1928 Standing Liberty quarter. If you're not digging pop-tops and nickels, you're missing many of whatever gold rings you're walking over.

Probably the best find I've made during the past 2 days is a crystal clear, beautiful creek that I know must have been used as a wading or bathing pool long ago during the hot Texas summers, before air conditioning came along. I'm filing that away in my memory for future treasure hunting adventures.

Please contact Jay if you have questions or concerns.

• Old school tech versus new school tech hunt was conducted on 11/24 with 4 people using new technology and 3 using old technology. It was a draw between the two groups with each finding some items. This is going to be made an annual event. Jay posted information on the club Facebook page as many people expressed an interest in the event and results.

New business:

• Jay solicited for program volunteers for the January meeting. There were no volunteers for December’s meeting, so Jay will be doing a short program. If you are interested in volunteering for future meetings, please let him know.

• There will be a Membership recruitment drive starting now until the end of January. The member who recruits the highest number of new members will get an uncirculated 1964D Half Dollar. New member applications can be picked up with Travis. The competition will go on until there is a clear winner.

• Pop-Top Challenge – The member who brings in the highest number of pop-tops to the January 1st meeting will receive a Standing Liberty Quarter. Please be aware that Pop-tops and pull tabs are different and for the purpose of this challenge, pull tabs will not count. Pop-tops that are turned in will be donated to Ronald McDonald House through Mike.

Topics to be discussed at January 1st Meeting:

• What’s on your mind? Raise your hand and say “I want to discuss… This is our club and everyone has a voice.

• Is anyone interested in a specific topic for a future meeting? You determine the topic. Just let Jay know.

THANK YOU to Travis’s wife for making the wonderful holiday cookies for December snack. If you would like to volunteer to bring refreshments to any meeting, please let Travis or Max know.

Responsible hunting will keep the hobby alive for everyone else! Please follow the Treasure Hunter's Code of Ethics so that all of us can continue to enjoy this enjoyable hobby and perhaps, even get lucky and find our fortunes!

1. I will respect private property and will do no treasure hunting without the property owner's permission.

2. I will fill in all holes I dig.

3. I will not damage natural resources, wildlife habitats, or any private property.

4. I will use thoughtfulness, consideration, and courtesy at all times.

5. I will build fires in designated or safe places only.

6. I will leave gates as found.

8. I will not litter.

10. I will not tamper with signs, structural facilities, or equipment.

11. And, finally, the most important one of all -- I will have fun!!

If we all follow these simple rules while metal detecting or treasure hunting, we will go a long way to keeping the public on our side in the fight to protect our rights.

Results of Old School vs New Tech Competition

Posted by [email protected] on November 26, 2018 at 8:00 PM Comments comments (0)

Our club's Old School vs New Tech Competition was a big success and a lot of fun for the participants. Seven members participated on this beautiful day - 4 on the New Tech Team and 3 on the Old School Team. We Old Schoolers would not have been outnumbered if our key player Jason Blackburn had not gone AWOL but we held our own anyway. The New Tech Team, consisting of Jerome Spencer (Garrett AT Pro), John Flemming (Tesoro Mojave), John Meeks (XP Deus), and Charlie Batten (Bounty Hunter Lone Star) found more modern change than the Old School Team, including Bryant Martin (Garrett ADS Deepseeker), Ralph Urteaga (Garrett Groundhog), and myself (Garrett Deepseeker) but we found a couple of pennies, two old keys, and a big 1978 diez pesos coin, and a "owl" piece of an earring. I believe the match ended in a draw as neither team found any silver, gold, or really old coins or relics.

The most important results were that we all had fun, enjoyed the beautiful weather, got some healthy exercise, and comradery. We also had 3 spectators who showed an interest in our hobby and we were detecting in a public place so that there were many passersby during the 90-minute event.

I took some pictures of the participants and our finds but, being old school and not using a cell phone, I took them with my digital camera so it will be a few days before I upload them onto my computer and begin posting them for you to see.



Old School vs. New Tech Metal Detector Competition

Posted by [email protected] on November 7, 2018 at 10:55 PM Comments comments (0)

CTTC Old School vs. New Tech metal detecting competition will be on Sat., November 24th beginning at 1:00 p.m.

This will be a Members Only event. The Old School Team will be using their 30+ year old metal detectors while the New Tech Team will use their more modern detectors. The only requirement to participate is that you be a current dues-paying member of the Central Texas Treasure Club. The New Tech team will be composed of more members than the Old School Team but if you have a vintage detector in good working condition and you want to use it in this competition, please contact me and let me know what type of detector it is and that you're going to be on my Old School Team as we need to get as many team members as we can to give the New Techies a run for their money. :)

Participants need to be at Coursey Park on Center Ave. in downtown Brownwood by 1:00. From there, we'll drive a short distance to the large area that we'll be detecting. The hunt will last for 90 minutes and, since none of the finds will be seeded, members can enter any of their best ones in our December 4th Finds of the Month contest.
