    Charles Garrett Memorial Hunt 2019
    in partnership with Texas Association of Metal Detecting Clubs
    Also known as Diggin’ Texas! Come out for a great weekend of metal detecting honoring the metal detecting legend Charles Garrett. There will be six different hunts, including “free range” hunting in the historic park itself. (See entry form for details on hunt packages and prices.) Prize tokens will be hidden in each hunt area. Find one and you could win Garrett detectors, Pro-Pointers, and more! Each hunt package includes free tent camping in the park. (A limited number of RV sites are available. Contact Diamond Don’s for rate.)
    Basic Hunt Package:
    Participation in prize hunts: Best Finds Hunt, Lights Out Hunt, Free Range Hunt, and Kids Hunt (for those 12 and  under). One Charles Garrett Memorial/Diggin’ Texas Hunt T-shirt (if hunt fee is paid before February 1, 2019) Free park admission and camping (RV camping requires additional fee) Hunters are free to search throughout the park grounds for native coins and relics that can be entered in the Best Finds contests. In addition, special prize tokens will be seeded throughout the park grounds that offer the finders a chance at winning metal detectors and other prizes. We also plan to excavate fresh areas of the historic town dump site, from which diggers unearthed many old bottles and relics at the past hunt. Meet other treasure hunters and find some treasure! Or explore Jefferson’s historic district and local museums Optional Silver Hunt and Relic Hunt also available.
