Here we go again. Another new year with the Treasure Seekers. We started some years ago with a membership of around 30 members. Now, we have an average of 150 members coming to our meetings. Our meetings just keep getting better. Our speakers are top notch. Our membership volunteers are the very best. There are […]
Here it is December. Where did this year go? What did we do this year???
Well, in January, David Rice gave a presentation on the Plaster City trip. Don Starr gave a presentation of a trammel he built for less than $40.00. We also had a field trip to the Hall of Fame claim. Jerry Hobbs […]
The big happening this month is the Julian Rendezvous on Veterans Day, November 11. Over 60 have signed up already. Big prizes for the gold panning contest. Big prizes for the metal detecting contest and those who participate in the metal detecting contest are eligible to do the relic hunt afterwards. Three or four clubs […]
The Himalaya Dig!!! Well, we did it. Some got some great specimens and some got a few specimens… We did have a large crowd. The event wasn’t as great as it was said to be. Maybe I wasn’t trying hard enough. Anyway, we did it and we will look for other places to dig for […]
I don’t know about you all but it has been pretty darn hot out there to do any serious prospecting. And you would be crazy to go to the desert to do it. The best bet for this summer weather is going metal detecting either in the parks or on the beach. I’ve been doing […]

Still the gold panning contest doesn’t draw that many who try. The winners of both contests are posted at our website. Thank you all for coming, providing the food […]
And the news just keeps rolling in. We had an event at the Bates Nut Farm the first weekend in June. It went very good. All those TSS members who had extra prospecting gear or any other items they wanted to get rid of had the chance to sell them at the Valley Center Yard […]
We set up the display at the California Center for the Arts this past month. It went well. Didn’t stay to see how many visitors liked it but it looked great to me. There were a lot of vendors selling all kinds of gems and minerals too. Our display showed a lot about our organization. […]
Still a fast pace for the Treasure Seekers. Got a request from the Palomar Gem and Mineral club to put up a display at the Escondido Center for the Arts. We did this some years ago for our Senior Center and also at the Vista Gas and Steam Engine organization. We set up on May […]
