6th Annual Can-Am Hunt

Livonia, MI

All Michigan Treasure Hunter club members are invited to attend the 6th 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, April 27th at John Stymelski Veterans Park in Livonia MI. Michigan Treasure Hunters is the host club for 2014, and we will be welcoming our metal detecting friends from the Chatham-Kent (Ontario Canada) club to this year’s event.

Three hunts will be held during the day. The first two are FREE to members of the two host clubs while the third is a mere $5 entry fee.

The plan is to have a hunt starting at 11 a.m. sharp, 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. Gold prizes too. I will be displaying the coins you could find and prizes to be awarded at the April 22nd MTH Open House Meeting. I invite you to come take a look at the display!

The club will again be providing some 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.

Pot-luck suggestions: If your last name starts with A – O bring an appetizer or something similar; P – Z a salad, 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 and headphones for your detector.

Dress for the weather! Plan on the hunt taking place rain or shine -- unless a freak snow storm or unsafe weather conditions causes a postponement.

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

This is one of the premier hunts of the year for the members of the Michigan Treasure Hunters. If you would like to become a member, please contact me at the email address above, or come to one of our meetings in Livonia, MI.

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