Under the shade of the pines in Hobart Park. Only 5 min from the 1715 Spanish fleet wreck treasure beaches. Competition hunt, silver and reale hunts. Lots of prizes including metal detectors (AT Pro, Ace 350/400), scoops, headphones and a lot more. The cost is $125 for the whole day (all hunts) including lunch. No individual pricing. If you send payment before March 1st, 2019, the cost is only $99. The fun starts at 9am. See our website for maps, forms and more information.

COMPETITION HUNT - There will be several thousand painted tokens evenly distributed in the marked-off area, very close to the surface (within 1").  The goal is to locate and recover as many of the marked coins as possible in one hour. Trophies and prizes awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places. Please feel free to gather at the border prior to the hunt, but please do not enter the area before the beginning of the hunt.  Everyone will begin at the same time and end at the same time.  Remaining time will be announced.  Please do not share tokens. Once you leave the hunt field, you cannot return. This hunt will require speed, technique, skill and the ability to bend over and have good knees and back. This hunt is for bragging rights as the "Best Competition Hunter". 

YOUTH HUNT (12 and under)  - The smaller buccaneers among us will have an opportunity to strut their stuff.  This is a mini version of the Competition Hunt. Yes, you can observe and give verbal help, but the smaller buccaneer is the only one who can operate the magic wand (metal detector) and retrieve the tokens.  Remember the primary goal is to have fun.  

THE SHOOT-OUT (PINPOINT) - This will definitely get you in the mood to pull some hair.  The object is to locate and place an X on the specific location of a coin attached to the underside of a piece of plywood.  The goal is to pinpoint the exact center of the hidden coin's location with your metal detector.  You will have 30 seconds to make your mark. Prizes awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places.
Then its break for LUNCH!

SILVER HUNT and REALE HUNT - Silver coins will be randomly distributed in the field.  Recover as many as you can, and keep all that you find!!!  The more that sign up, the more coins we will put in the ground!  Prize tokens will also be planted and some will be for SPANISH REALES!
