Brian's Secret Silver Cache

THSSCV invites you to search for a buried token worth either a Silver dollar or a Silver 1 Oz. This contest is open to anyone with a metal detector. All you need to do, is go to the location listed below and search for the token. The token is exactly 3 inches round and made of aluminum. The token will either say " Return to THSSCV for 1 silver dollar or 1 silver oz. " There is only 1 token in each location. The finder must bring the token back to the meeting to receive the prize. All tokens are buried about 4-5 inches and should be easy to detect. All locations are parks within Santa Clara County. The first 3 parks are : Calabazas Park (Calabazas Park Token has been found and redeemed) and Parkway Park token still to be found. Then there is De Anza Park-San Jose (Meridian Ave.)The 3rd park can only be found by solving this clue: " 62 rooms, 11 fires, 12 woods of the earth's forest, once a frontier, now an inn that attracts many a tourist. In the Vale of Eden, near where Nevada Street meets Main, lies a treasure from THSSCV, to which you may lay claim". (Edenvale token also found and redeemed). The Fourth park is San Tomas Park in San Jose. (San Tomas token has also been found).

URGENT MESSAGE

Over the past few years, the rent for our meeting hall has tripled. The Club can no longer absorb this increase in operating costs without raising the fees for a Club membership. Club dues have not been raised for 20 years.

Effective immediately, the membership in the TREASURE HUNTERS SOCIETY of SANTA CLARA VALLEY will be $35.00 per year. Family, single and junior memberships will all be $35.00. New members will be assessed a one time processing fee of $5.00. This membership is open to all families. Club hunts entry fees have been increased from the previous $10.00 per single entrant to $20.00.

CLUB HISTORY

The Treasure Hunters Society of Santa Clara Valley was founded in April of the Bicentennial year of 1976 by the combined effort of two dedicated and knowledgeable treasure hunters, Dave Hayslip of Los Gatos, California and Grover Ingram of San Jose, California. The club was founded in and is still based in the "Valley of Hearts Delight" in Santa Clara County, California.

The club we enjoy today started out as just a few friends with common interest in metal detecting and treasure hunting who wanted to share with others their interest and knowledge of the hobby. Over the years those initial informed gatherings grew to a size where a meeting hall was needed. Committees had been formed, new positions were now needed to meet the needs of a growing club. Political Advisors, Outside Hunts, Sunshine Committee, Refreshments and Web Master, are some of the ones added to meet these needs.
