10th Annual CAN-AM Hunt

All MTH members are invited to attend the 10th Annual Can-Am Hunt! Alternating each year from U.S. to Canadian soil, the hunt this year (or should I say hunts!) will take place in the U.S. on Sunday, July 15th at John Stymelski Veterans Park in Livonia MI. The park is located at 14275 Stark Rd, Livonia, MI 48154. Michigan Treasure Hunters is the host club for 2018, and we will be welcoming our metal detecting friends from the Chatham-Kent and Windsor clubs to this year’s event.

The park is located directly behind Eddie Edgar Ice Arena. There are Port-A-Johns and restrooms within walking distance. The 1st hunt of the day will take place around 10:30 – 11 a.m. so plan on arriving around 9:30-10am to check-in. If you would like to help plant the coins for the first hunt, please arrive around 9 a.m. (I could use a couple helpers out there!)

The plan is to have a hunt in the morning, followed by a break for lunch, and two hunts in the early afternoon. There will be domestic and foreign coins a plenty -- old and new -- over the course of the three hunts. There will be hundreds of silver coins and plenty of tokens redeemable for prizes in the ground as well. I will display some of the coins you could find and prizes to be awarded at the April Open House meeting.

The final hunt of the day will carry a small entry fee ($5). But a token found in this hunt will be redeemable for a nice silver or gold prize! Several gold coins will be handed out after this final hunt of the day. There will be raffles that will feature Silver Dollars and a detector as well!

The first two free hunts and the third gold & silver hunt are open to all current/paid members of MTH and the Chatham-Kent and Windsor Clubs. If you haven’t paid your dues and wish to participate in this hunt, please pay asap!

The club will again be providing the main food, beverages (pop/water) and picnic related items like plates, utensils and napkins. I ask that if you plan on attending the hunt this year, that all U.S. members/families bring a dish to share as part of a potluck lunch. Plan to also bring camping/folding chairs if you want your own comfortable place to rest after finding all your loot (although there are picnic benches to use as well).

Pot-luck suggestions: If your last name starts with A – O bring an appetizer, salad or something similar; P – Z fruit or dessert.

Remember to also bring a small hand digging tool (please no large shovels -- the coins will not be buried that deep), an apron to collect your trash and treasures, and headphones for your detector.

Dress for the weather! Plan on the hunt taking place rain or shine. Also -- as a reminder -- remember to fill your holes on the day of the hunt and only one hunter per detector, please! If you have any questions, please contact me at jwick01@yahoo.com or 734-591-6139.

Thanks, and Happy Hunting! Hope to see you out there!
