Seasonal Hunts

The Pilchuck Treasure Hunting Club makes every effort to conduct two seasonal metal detecting hunts each year: a Spring Hunt and a Fall Hunt. Typically, we hold those at Silver Lake's Thornton A. Sullivan Park at Everett, Washington. The third hunt, MayFest, we've gotten away from for a couple of years and we hope to get back to hosting that one soon.  

Spring Hunt

This year is like the previous years: we've set the date for May. For a mere $10 entrance fee, you have a chance to swing your metal detector to find coins, silver, and tokens. The tokens you turn in for the corresponding prize.
