CURTIS ROACH WILL HOST PARTY AGAIN!

 


The club president, Curtis Roach, will host his Annual Crawfish Boil on June 4, 2016 at his restored home in Hyrum, UT.  There will be food and fun and you don't even have to bring anything (except your metal detector).  Be there by 12:00 noon - 7:00 in the evening and again, bring along your metal detectors!  Curtis has buried some items in his garden that will interest everyone!  It will be a good time to practice your skills and there will be people there who know how to operate them and will help those who don't! 

Curtis has crawfish flown from Louisiana and once you have some, you'll want some more. He will show you how to eat them if you haven't had them before! 

Come on!  Let's participate and have a wonderful club outing!  Check your emails for Curtis' address.
