2018 Rendezvous Two Day Open Hunt 13 - 14 Antlers, OK

To Benefit the Handicap Children of Texas Lions Camp in Kerrville, TX and help supply needs for those Children and the Camp. We are very proud to have a chance to fulfill those needs and bring smiles on the Children faces. We were proud to make our annual visit to the Camp 2018 and work with many of the kids so to teach them how to enjoy the hobby of treasure hunting with a metal detector finding the foreign coins that so many of you donate every year for those kids. Showing them how to enjoy the hobby even with their disabilities helps them get out of the house and enjoy the great outdoors that many of us take for granted. We invite all to come and experience this great time with the children that we have enjoyed for over 20 years and have felt the change it has made in our own daily life's. Please remember those in-expensive foreign coins donations, for you would never believe the big smiles on those children faces when they have found/dug one for the very first time. Hope to see many of you there!
