Memphis Metal Detecting Club

Spring Hunt 2018

At Centennial Park (Formerly Eastwood Park in Millington, TN)

Saturday, April 21st 

The time for the 2018 Spring Club Hunt is here!  This is a seeded hunt for members of the Memphis Metal Detecting Club and with contact deals with other clubs only.  

The coins seeded in the hunt will be based on the number of participants.  There will be many prizes which include 2 Civil War eagle breast plates, a US box plate, a lined I confederate button, a block I Confederate button, multiple metal detectors and products from all the major metal detecting companies such as Garrett, Mine Lab, Whites, ect.  

There will also be raffles for some great items, so be sure to bring some extra cash.  Raffle items to date are: a Teknetics T2 Metal Detector, A Confederate Lined I Civil War Button, and a Civil War Artifacts book written by Howard R. Crouch (hard to find and no longer in print.)

All items placed in the field will be either a silver coin, relics from the Civil War, or a token to be redeemed for a prize.  Be sure to bring your own lunch and chairs.  There is a restroom and a grill at the park that will be available.  There are also various fast food places nearby.  Families and guest are welcome, but only paid members may hunt.  There are no refunds, rain or shine (unless lighting is present).  Always obey the hunt master and park rules.
