It's time once again for our annual treasure hunter get together. This year it will be bigger and better than ever. We expect to have a few honored guest that I'm sure all those in attendance will enjoy speaking with. Everyone is welcome to attend as this always been an open invitation and free to attend. The only thing I ask is that if you plan on being there let us know so I can gather up enough prizes to give out at the end of the meeting. I don't want anyone leaving empty handed and this year we will have some extra special goodies to hand out. Sorry no gold coins. Ron has hoarded them up and when he's not writing for the blog he counting those double eagles.

The meeting will start around 10:00am and will be at the Opera House located at 127 W Main St. in Marlow Oklahoma. Just look for the Mercantile Building on main street. You can't miss it. From Hwy 81 go east one block on Main Street. Since you guys are treasure hunters I'm going on faith that you will be able to find Marlow on the map. Clear the calendar and program the Tom Toms. There's plenty of room for everybody and if we need more space we can get Ron to pay for it.

Lunch will be just across the street at Giuseppe's. They have some really good Italian food. It's always a treat when I get the chance to dine there. Marlow and Duncan which is just a few miles south offer some interesting sites to see.

For those of you who have seen the movie "The Sons of Katie Elder", with John Wayne and his all star cast, it was inspired by the story of the Marlow brothers. We are going to try and get the town to open up the Marlow Brothers Cave for us to view. The entrance is housed inside a metal building but we won't be doing any spelunking.

Bring any interesting items you might have for a little show and tell. I'll have a few things there and I bet Ray and Ron will as well. Last years bunch brought some really nice items they had found. If you have any treasure hunting equipment you want to sale or trade drag it along too!
I have a few empty cast iron kettles if anyone interested. Just kidding! I rebury those and use them to test metal detectors with.

If you have any questions or plan to attend please e-mail me at

Hope to see you there!
