Puget Sound Treasure Hunters Club

Member Benefits


Monthly Meeting: The monthly meeting consists of club business, news, training, and voting for finds of the month. Six different categories of monthly finds are judged (US Coin, Jewelry, Foreign Coin, Token, Open, Monthly Hunt). Guests are always welcome.

Club Newsletter: The club newsletter is published monthly and mailed or e-mailed to all club members. It contains pictures of member treasure finds, minutes of the last meeting, member treasure stories, and information about up-coming events. 

Monthly Hunt: The club sponsors a monthly hunt the weekend following the club meeting. It is usually held at one of the local area parks. This is a great time for those new to the hobby to receive metal detector training.  Learn to be a safe and responsible treasure hunter.

Metal Detector Training: Learn to use your metal detector from our members that have years of experience. Also learn how to properly dig and retrieve your targets.

Annual Hunt: The Lenny Phay Memorial Hunt is held annually, in August, to honor Mr. Lenny Phay, one of the founding PSTHC members. Many guests from other treasure clubs attend to participate in the three major hunts that are scheduled throughout the day. A potluck/barbecue is held during the hunt.  This event is open to the public.

Annual Picnic: The annual pot-luck picnic/treasure hunt is for PSTHC members and guests and is usually held in June.  This is a fun-filled day of detecting and camaraderie.

Fun Hunts: Strengthen your metal detecting skills by participating in a scavenger, bingo, or gold hunt offered during the year.
