March meeting

Wow! We had a fantastic meeting last night. Some members brought displays to show and we even had a visit from quite a lucky leprechaun. Steve brought his new "SteveCo" detector that will be used at the TAMDC show this year and is sure to be a hit! We also heard about the latest buried cache for members to search for. Who will be the one to find it and get the silver half this time? No fun hunt this month!


Here are a few of the photos from last night's meeting.

February meeting

We had a great meeting in February and lots of members showed up for it. Our guest talked about detecting around Fort Worth and shared some of his display cases.

Take a look below some of the photos – including the fundraiser and items that our members found for the "find of the month" boards. Also, remember we asked members to bring a display case to share (if you have some already made) for our March meeting on March 1st. We hope to see you there.

EFTHA Meeting tonight

We will be having our normal club meeting tonight and there will be some news about the latest cache shared with those that can make it. We hope to see you there.

December Fun Hunt

The Saturday after our meeting, East Fork had our monthly fun hunt. Some of our friends from Golden Triangle joined us and we started with our usual $2 token hunt which also included some buffalo nickels. Maureen found the token and won the jackpot. We then started hunting through the park for the next hour. Many items were found including nearly 5 pounds of trash (metal debris) that we removed from the park. Some of the interesting finds included an 18K (HGE) ring, a few wheat pennies, and a presidential token (Abraham Lincoln). It was a little chilly, but we had a great time.


East Fork Treasure Hunters meeting

As a reminder, we will be having a joint Christmas party with our friends at Golden Triangle tomorrow evening. We will be resuming our normal club meeting location and time in January.


August meeting and the EFTHA Newsletters

We will be getting together on August 3rd for our monthly meeting. This is going to be a good one with our annual silent auction being the main attraction. There will be hotdogs and other refreshments served during our break. We will be having our "Find of the Month" contest along with some other fun activities. You won't want to miss the meeting.


Also, have you noticed that we put all of our monthly newsletters online here at the web site? If you are interested in keeping up to date with the East Fork Treasure Hunters Club, it's a handy resource. Additionally, we have a Facebook page for members only. If you are a member, look us up on Facebook and request to join. You might find some details about hidden caches or other opportunities for our members.


Speaking of hidden caches… Congratulations to Aaron for finding the latest one!


See you at the meeting

EFTHA Seeded hunt

With the weather threatening to put a damper on our seeded hunt, we pushed forward. We had several bouts of rain the night before the hunt and it continued through morning. Rheia persevered and seeded our hunt field with MANY targets for our dectorists to find. We met up at Samuel Farm and at hunt time, the skies remained clear. We had a fantastic hunt with many silver dimes, quarters, and half dollars found (or at least painted pennies that could be exchanged for the silver). We also had many other prizes that were given away including a new Garrett ACE 300 metal detector, hats, pouches, diggers, headphones, and a new Garrett Z-Lynk wireless system. Following the hunt, the club provided sandwich fixings and we shared lunch and many stories.

A big thank you to our huntmaster and his crew for pulling off a terrific event! THANK YOU!


June meeting

This month we had a great meeting. There were lots of finds for our "Finds of the Month" contest and the fund raiser was a huge success. Maureen from Garrett Metal Detectors gave us a talk and shared some pointers, focused mostly on the AT Pro (and shared a little info about the new AT Max). The marble games lucky ticket was pulled – which belonged to John W. He pulled the red marble (the winner) and took home some greenbacks.

We also talked about our upcoming seeded hunt, which will be on Saturday June 3rd.


June meeting tonight

Tonight is the EFTHA club meeting. We will be discussing the upcoming seeded hunt and we will be having a special speaker. You won't want to miss it. See you there.

Our monthly meeting for May 2017

This month, we had a great time at the meeting. We were given a fantastic presentation on metal detecting in Israel by our visiting speaker Ellen. She shared about working on archaeological digs that she participates in during the year. It was fascinating to learn how the use of metal detectors has grown in popularity with the "dig directors" and just how many items are now successfully recovered that may have been overlooked in the past. Of course we had our fun hunt on Saturday following the meeting (which required a quick relocation due to the lack of parking at our original destination).


If you are interested in metal detecting or would like to see what we're all about, feel free to visit us at our next monthly meeting on June 1, 2017  at the New World United Methodist Church gymnasium.
