Mind Over Metal
Enthusiasts from US and Canada converge on Heritage Park for a treasure trove of fun
Submitted by Mark Lewis, FV Treasure Hunters
Fraser Valley metal detecting enthusiasts search for hidden items July 26 at Heritage Park. Below, guess the weight of the metal objects to win a prize was one of the fun things laid out at the Annual Treasure Chest.
his past weekend in Chilliwack, the Fraser Valley Treasure Hunters held their 2nd Annual Treasure Chest at Heritage Park in Chilliwack.
In the center ring we had 50 hunters from Oregon, Washington, the Okanagan,
the Lower Mainland and the Fraser Valley.
2nd hunt, the participants were broken up into teams, they had to find
tokens to spell the word silver, the winning team received a Silver Canadian
Half Dollar for each Member.
The prizes ran the gamut from Silver Canadian 5 cent pieces, hats, aprons,
books, small appliances, tools, and the list even includes mini gold replica
A very nice peaceful way to end the day of hunting.
I would be seriously amiss if I did not mention the wonderful magnificent dinner we had at the Greek Islands in Chilliwack, which was included in the entry fee.
It was a long day but boy was it a BLAST!! Watch for us July 15 2015 for the 3rd Annual Treasure Chest, see you there.
